New Cold Sore Machine Cuts Healing Time in Half

The Virulite Cold Sore Machine is a new clinically proven treatment that has been proven to cut healing time in half. Using invisible light treatment, it also provides almost complete pain relief for sufferers without the need for drugs or topically applied creams.

Pharmacist Cold sores on the lips and around the mouth are unsightly and can cause sufferers severe pain. They usually appear as blisters that develop on the lips or around the mouth, which usually begin with a tingling, itching or burning sensation, before small fluid-filled sores develop, usually on the edge of the lower lip. They are caused by the herpes simplex virus, often passed on in early childhood. The virus passes through the skin and travels up the nerves, where it lies dormant until triggered at a later date. Common triggers include having another infection, having a high temperature, emotional upset or stress, tiredness, fatigue, an injury to the affected area, periods and strong sunlight; though often there is no obvious trigger. [1]

Clinical trials have proven the benefit of a new treatment, the Virulite Cold Sore Machine. In a clinical trial conducted at a North East hospital topical aciclovir applied five times daily was compared to a single application of the 1072nm light. The invisible light treatment halved cold sore healing time as compared to topical aciclovir.

It is believed that the 1072NWB light acts as a catalyst, which enhances the local immune response, which allows the body to heal itself more rapidly. The researchers at Virulite Ltd know that the light has no effect upon the actual virus but does have a positive effect upon the immune cells responsible for fighting the virus. It also plays a role in generating powerful antioxidants within the cells.

The clinical evidence proves that this is a superior treatment, however ongoing research by Virulite Ltd has given rise to strong anecdotal evidence that if used to treat 4 to 5 separate cold sore attacks, the recurrence of the cold sores is significantly reduced. This is the focus of ongoing research. In tests, 86% of patients experienced reduction in healing time of three days.

The Virulite Cold Sore Machine works best if used to treat your cold sore as soon as you become aware of it (at the blister or tingling stage) and then 12 hours later. In the majority of people this is an adequate treatment, however in a small percentage of people the virus takes a little longer to travel down the nerve to the skin. The 1072NWB light therapy is only effective in the presence of the virus, so if the cold sore appears to progress after the second treatment it is best to treat four more times a day for 2 days. There is no limit to how many times a cold sore can be treated, but treating more often is not recommended as it is of no proven clinical benefit. It remains effective even after the tingling stage although that is the best time to initiate treatment.

The invisible light that the Cold Sore Machine uses penetrates the skin relatively easily, thus can treat cold sores in the nose, inside the lip and on the face as effectively as cold sores that are present on the outside of the lips.

For some people, their cold sores are accompanied by severe pain. Research by Virulite has demonstrated that in the majority of these cases almost complete pain relief occurs within the period of the 3-minute treatment cycle.

Lucy B comments, “I've only got good things to say about this gadget. Not sure how it works, but, it works and that's all that matters to me.”

William comments, “This product (Virulite Cold Sore Machine) is the most effective treatment I have used in terms of getting rid of the cold sore quickly.”
