Prev post1 of 3Next Fever blisters, also known as cold sores, are caused by the herpes simplex type 1 virus.

Pour ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar into a large bowl, and then fill the bowl halfway with boiling water. Place a towel over your head so that it drapes over the bowl, trapping the steam, and hold your face over it. Make sure your face isn’t so close that it gets burned by the steam.
