Cold Sores & Canker Sores
For those of you who follow me on Instagram you will have seen in my stories the very bad rash that I broke out in as a result of being allergic to penicillin. In addition, as a fitness instructor its impossible to keep dry skin so a heat rash has started as a result of the initial rash.
I originally started as a few bumps on my lower abdomen to then spreading to my trunk, then chest, then all down my arms and now on my legs. Its not pretty. I’ve spent the past week trying to rid this nasty rash in any way possible.
I had an interesting bout of cold sores and canker sores this fall and I had never had them in my life on my tongue and on the outside of my lip. I felt mortified everywhere I went. It was very discouraging to be in public and also very painful and really made it hard to eat so I ended up resorting to mostly shakes, smoothies or really bland foods. It kept my diet in check because I wasn’t tasting anything so I didn’t have an urge to put anything bad in my body!
As a girl on a mission, I went to Whole Foods hoping to find some answers! Paired with a lot of my own research, I found a few really great products that helped heal the inside and outside of my mouth in a matter of 2 days.
