What’s the better option in getting rid of a cold sore

Recommended Posts

I think Carmex is an outdated/false treatment. It's got salicylic acid, which I understand stimulates cell turnover, which helps reduce chapped lips. But I don't believe this would prevent the virus from doing it's thing. In fact, I would argue it thins the skin, so it would actually make it easier for the virus to break through the skin, thus creating a full blown outbreak. 

I love Abreva in treating outbreaks (most effective the earlier you notice something amiss). I've often been able to keep them at bay within 1-3 days.
