Blistex Cold Sore Cream is suitable for individuals who are enduring cold sores who are looking to quickly and effectively banish the virus. Those suffering with cold sores are likely to experience symptoms such as a tingling, burning sensation to the lip, with a blister then appearing within 48 hours. This cream contains an active ingredient called Docosanol which works by penetrating the skin to block the virus in its early stages and helping to aid the healing process. This soothing cream creates a cooling sensation around the infection which helps to alleviate any itchiness or irritation associated with cold sores and can heal in as little time as 2.5 days when used correctly.
It should be applied to the affected area 5 times a day, at approximately 3-hour intervals.

Recently I was sure I was due a cold sore. Run down, tingling lips, dental pain etc. Used this at the early stage and no blister appeared. I have tried the rest but this is by far the most effective early stage treatment i have found. Pricey for a small tube but worth it.
I have suffered from cold sores since childhood. Mine last for weeks and are unsightly and extremely embarrassing (I am a teacher), especially during the healing process when they crack and bleed. Not any more! I keep a tube in my purse and applied at first tingle, I have avoided a full outbreak on the last three occasions. I still get the white blisters under the skin and the site is slightly painful, but thats as bad as it gets. Cant recommend this product highly enough!
