Description

A cold sore is an unsightly and often painful blister on the lips caused by a Herpes Simplex virus infection. A cold sore starts with a tingling, burning sensation on the lip. The blister then appears within 24 hours. It usually breaks within a few days but it can take up to ten days to heal fully. As they are contagious, the sufferer must take care not to infect others or re-infect themselves. Cold sores often occur when a person has a cold, but other stress factors can also bring them on e.g. trauma, emotional distress, stomach upsets, periods, even too much sun.

Blistex Cold Sore Cream is a clinically proven treatment that works differently to anything else on the market. It’s the only treatment in the UK to contain the unique active ingredient docosanol, which when applied at first tingle, gets to work earlier in the cold sore cycle than other cold sore treatments. Docosanol acts as a barrier to help stop the cold sore virus from entering healthy cells and to prevent the spread of infection.
