I am a person is prone to cold sore. Even when I was young, I usually get cold sore - partly associated with weather, and mostly associated with stress. It was very embarrassing walking around with this sore on my lips... it's an ugly sight.
A few years ago, I discovered CARMEX and it is a "lipsaver!" It absolutely works for me. I have not had a bad cold sore since then. The moment I feel a little tingling on my lips I put in a lot of this Carmex lip balm and it does not develop into a full blown cold sore. No more embarrassing lips!
I tell you, it's better than Blistex or any other brand out there! I stack them at home to make sure we have a supply all the time.
Many of the surfers here on Maui use that too against lip sun burn. I tell you...it works!
And guess what? Wikipedia even has an article about CARMEX. Here's its Official Site.
