Hi, everyone! Talking about something important today –treating cold sores.

I love my lips and I want to keep them healthy at all times. While I have never been prone to cold sores, they are quite common and nothing to laugh about. They can be painful and embarrassing. With cold sores being so common, they shouldn’t be as embarrassing as they are, but the truth is that you don’t just want to prevent and treat yours, you want to make sure they don’t spread to your loved ones. And what exactly is a cold sore? How did you get one? A cold sore (fever blister) is a small blister that forms around the mouth. It’s clear and filled with fluid.

And we’re going to talk about finding RELIEF!

How to Prevent and Treat Cold Sores:

1 – Reduce your stress. This is way easier said than done, but if you’ve already had one cold sore, the virus is in your system and always will be, but hopefully dormant. Stress weakens your resistance to cold sores, so stress solutions help.

2 – Don’t share germs with a cold sore! They spread through contact with someone who has them. This means to limit kissing, and also sharing forks, spoons and glasses. Also don’t touch your sore or someone else’s sore until it clears.

3 – Keep your lips out of the sun. Excessive sunlight can cause an outbreak. Wear a lip balm with SPF and facial sunscreen. You can wear a hat or sit in the sun. If you do have a cold sore, put balm on with a cotton swab so it doesn’t spread.

4 – If you have one, ice it. It doesn’t work the way medication does, but a cold pack can reduce the pain and inflammation.

5 – Use Campho Phenique® Cold Sore Treatment. Its maximum strength formula helps to dry out the cold sore without causing cracking! And it uses the strongest concentrations of the pain relieving and antiseptic ingredients, camphor and phenol, to help promote healing. Plus, it’s a clear gel so it comfortably treats cold sores fast without showing. And it helps to prevent any secondary infection! I love that it has multiple benefits.

What else?

  • As mentioned, Campho Phenique® uses the maximum concentrations of both active ingredients to provide relief fast.

  • It’s a strong and effective topical analgesic (painkiller) and an antiseptic so it will help relieve pain AND prevent secondary infection.

  • This cold sore medicine can be found at your favorite local retailers!
