Blistex Cold Sore Cream is ideal for individuals suffering from cold sores who are looking to quickly and effectively banish cold sores. It contains an active ingredient called docosanol which works by penetrating the skin to block the virus.
This soothing cream gives off a cooling sensation which helps to alleviate any itchiness or irritation associated with cold sores and can heal infection in as little time as 4-6 days.
It should be applied to the affected area 5 times a day, at approximately 3-hour intervals.
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!
For those who suffers from herpes a good product. At fast application Blistex doesnt allow to develop further
