Kānuka Honey Just as Good as Acyclovir for Treating Cold Sores (Herpes Simplex Virus)

A Special Type of Honey Might Be Just as Effective For Cold Sores as Regular Creams 

Science Alert

...The researchers combined kānuka honey with glycerol and compared the mix with a cream of 5 percent. Each topical treatment was then allotted randomly to 952 volunteers, who were instructed to apply treatment within the first 72 hours of noticing an outbreak, repeating it five times a day until the blisters vanished.

Tallying up the figures, those who used the acyclovir on average experienced symptoms for 8 to 9 days, and had an open blister for about 2 days.

For those who used honey, the results weren't significantly different, suggesting there just might be something to these claims after all...
