8 Ways to Get Rid of a Cold Sore in Just One Day

in Uncategorized

There is nothing more annoyingly painful than waking up to find a cold sore on your lip. Particularly when you have something very important planned for the day ahead. Well if you need to nix a cold sore fast, don’t fret– we have the answer! Guess what, there are natural ways, like the following 8 tips, that can help you get rid of that annoying cold sore quickly. Nobody will ever know it was there.

1. Milk

It sounds surprising but that half gallon of milk in your fridge might just be your answer! Soak a cotton ball with your 1% (or whole, whatever you’ve got will work) and let it sit for a few minutes. Apply milk repeatedly and let it stay – don’t go washing it off.

2. Licorice

This favorite kid’s candy is actually a cold sore remedy in disguise. Licorice root has an acid called glycyrrhizic which will stop the virus from growing and developing and equips the body to counter an attack on the sore. The best way to do it? Mix licorice powder or extract with water to make a paste, then apply it directly to the sore.

3. Peroxide

This one shouldn’t be too surprising. With its amazing antibiotic properties, peroxide cleans out a sore and helps it heal faster than most methods. This works especially well if the sore has started to bleed. Apply the peroxide every 2-3 hours and watch it disappear.

4. Garlic

Most people remember their mother’s telling them that garlic is great for a cold. What mom may NOT have told you is that garlic is great for cold sores, too. The healing, antiviral, and antibiotic properties of garlic make it the perfect all-natural solution. Crush a clove and put it directly on the sore…as smelly as that might be.

5. Peppermint Oil

The antiviral powers of peppermint oil makes for a much more pleasant smelling solution. Apply the oil to your sore 3 times a day for instant relief and no cold sore. Plus, a really lovely smell under your nose all day long

6. Tea Tree Oil

There are few things tea tree oil CAN’T do. The antibacterial healing properties of this oil are renown, and it’s guaranteed to dry up and banish your cold sore within a day – if you apply it throughout the day and before you go to bed, that is. Diligence is the key to defeating cold sores, friends.

7. Ice

Too simple, you say? Well, it may not have miracle properties like the other entries on this list, but it is the easiest of them all. Who doesn’t have ice (or at least a tray to make some ice) hanging out in the freezer? And if you don’t, it’s super cheap to buy at the store.

Apply ice on the sore throughout the day, especially when the sore first begins. The cooling of the ice can take away the swelling and pain on you lip, helping you resist the urge to pick at the sore and worsen the situation.

8. Vanilla

One of the easiest remedies is probably in your pantry right now: vanilla. Vanilla extract is one of the easiest remedies to get a hold of, plus the extract is known for its powerful medicinal purposes. Vanilla is high in alcohol levels, which means it’s hard for a sore to survive and thrive when confronted with vanilla. Use 4-5 times a day for a quick-healing sore.

People Notice Birds Behaving Strange At Park, Then Find Loads Of Pills Dumped Nearby

in Uncategorized

Chris Carr Park in Huntington Beach, California, is an 11-acre city park features a playground for kids, a lake for fishing, and an area for family picnics.

However recently, a group of people happened to notice the wild birds of Carr Park displaying some very strange behaviour. A Canada goose and ring-billed gull could be seen walking at a very slow pace, as their heads hung low with their eyes almost closed shut.

There was one point where the goose actually fell onto its back and passed out. There was no movement as it’s legs stuck straight up in the air.

Soon after the incident concerned neighbours noticed that hundreds of prescription pills were dumped in the park and scattered along the grass. These innocent birds probably thought they had stumbled upon a treasure trove of grain. In fact what they did ingest was heart and sleep-aid medications and antidepressants!

Local animal control was contacted where they birds were transported to the local wildlife centre. The staff confirmed the birds had sadly overdosed.

However, the story thankfully has a happy ending.

Take a look at the video below for more details on the story:

Little Boy Surprises Mother With $80 Gift For Only $20, This Will Melt Your Heart

in Uncategorized

Christmas is special in its own right and children really make Christmas magical. Having kids around and to witness the wonder and excitement in their eyes seriously really raises the seasonal spirit.

Many children focus on their gifts under the tree with their names scrawled across them, however there are some kids who find joy in giving.

Children don’t have lots of cash, so their presents are generally handmade works of art, ornaments or other tokens of affection that parents or grandparents really appreciate.

Not for this young boy called Gabe, who had his eye on just the thing for his mom, and he knew she just had to have it.

El Marie his mother shared an account of their unusual shopping trip on Facebook the day before Christmas. They had gone to Target on the morning of Christmas Eve while Gabe ran off to do his own errand as his mother shopped.

As she pulled up to a checkout lane, a woman stopped her. “Your son is something special,” she said. “He is an absolute angel!”

Then, as I approached the checkout, I noticed three or four employees scurrying around, and giving me sly looks,” the mom recounted in her post. “One was carrying a roll of wrapping paper. Gabe comes running over to me with ‘Mom, don’t look. Dont come yet. I’m not through with your gift yet.’”

Feeling slight confused, she asked her son where he thought he was getting the cash to pay for anything.

What are you talking about, Boy?” she asked. “You don’t have any money.”

I just need that $20 I made from working at your job last week,” he replied, and so she handed it over while onlookers smiled knowingly. Everyone seemed to understand what was going on except for her.

When it was her turn to check out, the cashier told her she had an amazing son. Still confused, the mom finished up and met her son at the door. He was carrying a big, wrapped box.

Mom, I heard you say you wanted this,” he said. “I hope you love it when you open it on Christmas.”

Gabe. . How did you pay for this? And. . . Target doesn’t wrap presents. How did you get this one wrapped?”

“I didnt want you to see it so the people wrapped it. I want it to be a surprise.”

Still unsure how Gabe managed to pay, his mom was shocked at his explanation and wrote that “this is when I lost it, emotionally.”

Gabe: When they rang it up it was $80,” he said. “I didnt have that much, and I told them I wanted to get you this surprise, so a lady in line behind me paid the other $60.”

Me: Wh. . aat, Gabe? What lady? Did you know her? Did you thank her?”

“Gabe: (nonchalantly) Yes, Mom. . I hugged her, I thanked her a whole bunch, and I said ‘God bless you.’”

Gabe filmed his mom opening up the much-anticipated gift on Christmas morning. It seems he had noticed his mom’s winter coat was a little worn. at some stage he overheard her comments and located the new one she wanted at Target.

I certainly underestimated my Gabe,” the overwhelmed mother wrote on Facebook. “I would really like to thank the woman who showed my Chocolate Drop love in action, and renewed my faith in people. Please share our story in the hopes that it might reach her, allowing me the opportunity to thank her in person for her kindness.”

in Uncategorized

Part of good parenting is raising your children to accept the true values that keep the world a better place.

Many parents feel immense pride when they see their child do something that lights up someone else’s life. It’s easy to see why Claire’s parents certainly felt that way.

Both of Claire’s parents are deaf, however this hasn’t stopped her and her little sister from communicating with them. Since she was a young girl Claire has known American sign language, which bridges the communication with her parents.

Claire’s school were in the process of setting everything up for their annual Christmas show, this entailed all the kids performing a song in front of a large audience.

Given the fact that Claire’s parents are deaf, this posed a problem for her as she knew it would be a shame they wouldn’t properly experience the Christmas show. Having thought about it for some time she decided to translate what was being done into sign language.

As well as singing Claire also sang with her hands, which surprised her parents as she gave them a moment they will remember forever.

This Christmas gesture it’s certainly something special from someone as young as Claire!

Take a look at her efforts in the video below:

Bus driver collects kids early in morning as usual, until parents realise they are not at school

in Uncategorized

If you’ve ever attempted to walk or drive on black ice then you’ll know exactly how dangerous it is.

This came as no surprise when Shelby County informed parents that in an effort to wait for it to melt from the roads school would be delayed.

Bus driver Wayne Price didn’t get the message in time. He had already collected his students, and realised returning them homes would only increase the chances of an accident. So, he did something entirely different instead…

Wayne didn’t want to park the vehicle up and let the kids turn to their smartphones for two hours, so he decided to do something different to keep them occupied.

His actions hardly came as a surprise to officials at Montevallo Elementary School in Montevallo, Alabama.

They happen to know just how cheeky Wayne can be.

The children didn’t realise what was in store for them. When they arrived at a local McDonald’s they must have wondered if Wayne had lost his mind.

It seems he simply wanted to treat them all to breakfast biscuits, and paid for all their meals in place of the breakfast they missed.

Let’s put this in perspective, on his bus there were around 40 to 50 children, so you can imagine how much the bill cost him. Officials from the school responded to the gesture on Facebook, saying: “Mr. Price, one of our bus drivers, truly demonstrates the spirit of Christmas! On Tuesday, when school was delayed due to icy roads and we weren’t able to serve breakfast, he purchased biscuits from McDonald’s for his entire bus of students! What a kind act that our students will forever remember!”

People from all over the world have flooded Wayne with tributes and kind messages after getting wind of his charitable act.

Woman Takes Photo of Sign on Man’s Backpack, Only For Him To Be Flooded with Texts & Calls Hours Later

in Uncategorized

How far would you go to sustain the life of someone you love so dearly? It’s not a question you hear too often.

Many of us, get up every morning and go to work to support our families. However the importance of that daily struggle starts to become a bit more serious when someone is faces a disease with no easy cure.

Raymond Thompson from Brooklyn, New York, is only too familiar with this. In 200 he apparently met his wife, Mylen, in the most adorable way.

In an AOL chat room they became familiar with one another as they connected over a shared love of professional wrestling. Eventually they got married and had a daughter.

However in 2016 Thompson got a phone call that would change everything. “She called me at work and said, ‘Babe, you need to come home right now,’” he recalled.

She said, ‘I can’t feel my right side. It’s numb.’”

Mylen had developed kidney disease and requires dialysis three days a week. But her husband isn’t happy to simply allow her wait on a donor list.

So out of inspiration from stories like those of Rob Leibowitz, a man who secured an organ transplant by walking around Disney World with a t-shirt that said, “In need of kidney,” he began display his wife’s own need. He simply attached a sign to his backpack.

The following is a photo I took at my Target yesterday and can’t stop thinking about.

It read, “In need of a kidney for my wife, B+, 917-442-6202.” He wears it each and every day in hope that someone would come to his family’s aid.

He is doing great for his wife,” his mother, Donna Thomspon, explains. “I am praying every night for my daughter-in-law to get through with her kidney and to feel much better to take care of her daughter.”

It seems someone did in fact notice the sign, a CNN Travel editor named Lilit Marcus. While out picking up her prescriptions, she spotted Thompson in Target and decided to snap a picture of him later sharing it on Twitter.

Unsure what to say, I quickly snapped a photo. And then he was gone,” she later adds.

Both her and Thompson were amazed by the social media response it gained. Even celebrities such as Zach Braff and Evan Rachel Wood began to share her post, as Thompson’s phone began to buzz.

Ever since, it’s been crazy,” he said. “People have been calling, text messages, all day every day and night, so most of my time I’m just there replying.”

Thompson wants everyone to know that the family won’t be starting a GoFundMe campaign while they are in search of a kidney. They have all the money they require and are only looking for a kidney.

Sickness doesn’t care who you are,” he said. “I appreciate everyone who reaches out. …

Sign up to be organ donors. There are so many people that actually need organs, especially kidneys.

You have two and can live a healthy life with just one. Just sign up.

Mother Shares Concerns After Son Ingests Magnets from Popular Children’s Toy

in Uncategorized

Whilst kids love to unwrap Christmas presents and play with their new toys, the dangers in those toys become quiet clear. Initially they look nice and tidy in their colourful wrapper, but the reality they can actually become rather dangerous.

A broken toy resulted in trip to the hospital and emergency surgery for this particular family.  A young boy called Beck managed to open up a seemingly innocuous toy: a plastic, magnetic building triangle.

You’ve more than likely seen them. The small magnetic pieces are used to build larger structures. The issue occurred when the piece was broken, magnets contained within it spilled out and Beck swallowed 13 of them.

Battery button are incredibly dangerous and often lethal for children and pets, however people are not aware of how dangerous magnets can be. Jennifer White shared her story to Facebook in an attempt to warn other parents about these pitfalls.

Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts ❤️” she wrote on Facebook on Dec. 27 along with an image of her son, “all the good vibes and juju are needed. We are headed to Children’s hospital in Milwaukee.

Beck and Mom are taking an ambulance and Dad’s meeting us there. Beck broke open a magnetic toy and has 13 tiny magnets in him.”

“If you have little ones or chewers these are dangerous and we’re removing them from our home. Dogs could also break these open too.”

Updated: He has finished with surgery they had to remove part of his colon, intestines and appendix. The magnets created holes and infection in his intestines. He has to stay in Children’s for at least 3-4 days. They need to restart his bowels and watching the infection. He is high risk still and please keep him in your thoughts and prayers thank you 🙏”

So many people have sent their prayers and gifts, although Beck has been sleeping a lot, thankfully things are looking okay at the moment, according to recent Facebook posts.

Never in all of my life have I had the support and unbelievable generosity of so many people,” White wrote on Dec. 28 “I’m still in complete awe. Beck is doing well and mostly sleeping which is good cause it will be easier to rid the infection in his stomach.

His stay will be at minimum four days and our family is over an hour away … We are beyond blessed and set for whatever comes are way with Beck this week. I’m pretty sure I haven’t stopped crying since a special angel showed up with so much love from so many of my friends and new friends.

Thank you all so very very much from the bottom of my heart and from my family. We are truly grateful and blessed for all the love and support. He will be excited to check out some movies and programs when he does wake up. Thank you!!!!!

Luckily for this family they caught it in the nick of time despite the stress and trauma they’ve experienced. Thankfully it looks like Beck will pull through. Make sure to keep an eye out for such dangers that are often in plain sight!

Experts Explain What You Should Do If a Dog Attacks You

in Uncategorized

More than a decade ago, I attended a family member’s wedding where I decided to go for a stroll down a country lane one day.

I had only just set off when a dog on the porch of a nearby property began to bark at me. The dog bounded down the driveway while barking mad

In my moment of panic: I ran away only for the canine to follow while snapping at my heels.

Of course my instant reaction was a little silly and I had no idea what would’ve happened if the animal had caught me. Sadly, many in Delaware have experienced the same through bitter experience.

Apparently attacks from dogs have increased over the past ten years within the state according to the Delaware News Journal dog. 8-year-old Emily Ruckle was mauled by a family member’s dog when she simply stepped outside in 2016.

Todd Ruckle, her father witnessed the whole thing. “He went after her, just went after her,” he said.

He smashed her head on the floor, then he tore off her arm. It was hanging by threads … just skin and some tendons.”

Emily survived the incident and thankfully saved her arm. That same year, a Delaware boy passed away after a trio of pit bulls attacked him.

Ruckle himself got attacked by two pit bulls two years after his daughter’s attack. Legislators considered laws that would restrict or contain dangerous animals, but people still wondered how they would deal with a dog attack if they found themselves in that situation.

 Cesar’s way have listed some guidelines explaining what to do if a dog chases you. The first thing is to remain calm and not give in to fear.

Should a hostile canine approach you while you’re out running or jogging, the wisest course of action is to make it to lose interest. So don’t scream or try to run.

If you stay still, keep your hands down and avoid eye contact, you stand a good chance of having the aggressive dog decide you aren’t a threat. If the dog attacks try to shove an item like a jacket or purse toward them. If the dog latches onto something else, you have a chance to escape to safety.

Finally, if that doesn’t work then curl into the fetal position, cover your ears and do not move. Remember to protect your face, chest and throat. Stay calm and minimise your movements.

Experts urge individuals not to judge animals by breed but rather focus on their body language. A rigid body, ears combed flat to the skull and a piercing gaze tell you more about an animal’s aggression than its physical morphology.

Take a look at the video below for more do’s and don’ts.
