Tea-bagging cold sores away

I don’t know if it’s something in the water, but many people online seem to think that putting a wet tea bag over a cold sore is somehow more effective than using Abreva or any other clinically and time tested cold sore creams.

Now I think tea bags are a silly remedy that will never work for many reasons.

First is that there are literally hundreds of different types of tea (and therefore tea bags) available depending on where you live. Therefore their effectiveness (or lack thereof) cannot be narrowed down to one specific compound.

In fact, the argument proposed by the tea-baggers out there is that tea contains “antioxidants”. And while this is certainly true, there are literally thousands of different antioxidants out there (such as vitamin C and vitamin E), and there is just no way they are all equally effective against cold sores.

So, say if you DO KNOW which antioxidants are most effective against cold sores, wouldn’t it make more sense to, you know, just take that specific antioxidant instead of guessing what’s in that tea bag?

Second, holding a wet tea bag over your face has got to be the most inconvenient cold sore treatment there is.

I mean sure you can hold it over your outbreak for a few minutes at a time, but to get any benefits you’d probably have to hold it there for hours.

And like most people, you probably have better things to do that require the use of both your hands.

So are you going to spend hours each day holding it there?

I know I’d rather put some Abreva cream or something once every few hours and get back to whatever I’m doing at the time.

Not only do I KNOW for SURE that I’m getting those cold sore killing compounds, I don’t have to waste time holding a tea bag on my face in the hopes of maybe getting some kind of herpes destroying benefit.

But my final reason for finding tea bagging silly has actually nothing to do with the biochemistry of cold sores.

For those that don’t know, tea bagging is a rather raunchy sexual act.

I’ll let you look it up for yourself (if you’re so inclined)…

But the geeks out there (like me) also know that it can also refer to the juvenile victory dance that online multiplayer video game enthusiasts partake in to further humiliate a defeated opponent.

You can look that up to (if again, you’re so inclined)…

Suffice it to say, you tea-bag after you’ve won, but it’s a terrible strategy while in the heat of a battle.

And if you’re in a battle with a cold sore right now, my recommendation is to go and read Cold Sore Control today:

It teaches what you need to do to both beat down and prevent cold sores for good.

You know, the part that comes before the tea-bagging…
