Carmex in my opinion is the best lip balm out there to help with cold sores, I feel incomplete without a pot in my pocket! It contains soothing menthol that helps counteract the dreaded 'cold-sore tingle' (all you cold-sore sufferers know what I mean) and camphor, which has slight anesthetic properties to combat the pain of a full-blown cold sore blister. I used to be very prone to cold sores, but since using carmex regularly I now rarely get them. I sometimes found that I had cold sores for over 3 weeks at a time but using this helped.

What You'll Need

  • Carmex Lip Balm

What You'll Do

  • Keep applying to your lips if you are feeling particularly tired, run down, or if you have spent a lot of time in the sun.
  • Apply liberally to lips as soon as you feel the tell-tale tingle of the oncoming cold sore.

Tips & Warnings

  • Choose the original kind without flavour – for some reason I find that to be the best one to heal cold sores!
