what is a cold sore?

a cold sore starts with a tingling, burning sensation to the lip. a blister then appears within 48 hours and can take up to ten days to fully heal. flu, fatigue, stress and extreme weather conditions are just a few of the common triggers for cold sores, meaning that many people tend to suffer more cold sores during the colder months of the year.

the blister may spread and be irritating or painful whilst it heals, so itโ€™s advised to use a treatment such as Blistex cold sore cream to help aid the healing process.

Unfortunately Blistex Cold Sore Cream is out of stock until further notice.
