Yes honey can help get rid of a cold sore and help it go away faster.

Honey is a natural antibiotic and can also help kill viruses as well as bacteria so putting honey on the cold sore can help kill the virus that causes the cold sore so that it goes away sooner.

Honey is a natural home remedy for a variety of things including the cold sores and has been used for years.

Honey is also a natural cough medicine and can help with strep throat as well as a sore throat.

The honey not only kills viruses and bacteria it also lubricates the throat.

You can also apply toothpaste to the cold sore which helps get rid of it.

Or even some apple cider vinegar can also help get rid of the cold sore.

Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus and usually go away even on their own without treatment within 1 to 3 weeks.
