Honey 'as good as antiviral creams' for cold sores

May 28th 2019
"Honey is 'just as effective at treating cold sores as anti-viral creams'," the Mail Online reports. Cold sores are skin infections around the mouth caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). You catch the virus through direct skin contact with another person who has the virus. Once you have it, HSV lies dormant in the nerve cells and can reactivate at another time, which is why some people get recurrent cold sores, particularly when they're run down.
