Sorefix Lip Balm for cold sores 6ml - zinc based treatment for treating and preventing cold sores
Warning: Last items in stock!
Acyclovir-free, zinc based treatment for treating and preventing cold sores. Traditional antiviral treatments only work once the infection is present, whereas SoreFix blocks cold sore triggers with a discreet physical filter.
The HSV virus has no resistance to zinc treatments and there are no known side effects. SoreFix has a long shelf life and comes in a 6ml tube or 10ml jar, therefore it lasts longer and is more cost effective.
Cold sores are also known as a fever blister that usually forms on the lips or around your mouth. A cold sore is one of the most common viral infections. It’s an infection caused by a virus called the Herpes Simplex Virus, usually “type-1” (HSV-1).
The Herpes Simplex Virus is also called the cold sore virus. The herpes simplex virus is most often acquired through kissing, close personal contact, or sharing food and utensils with an infected person. It may also be spread by hand or glasses, after contact with cold sores, so it is important to wash your hands frequently and glasses thoroughly. The herpes simplex virus is contagious from the first sign of an outbreak until it is completely healed.
The cold sore is marked by a fluid filled blister that makes the skin red and swollen. The blisters of the cold sore are often very painful. As these blisters are filled with fluid, the upper layer is very tender and rubbing them can lead to severe infection. If medication is taken on time, the blisters can be healed without any scar formation.
Yet, in most cases, the blisters have tendency to reappear. Unlike most other viruses, when the herpes simplex virus enters your body it never leaves. After the first infection, the virus travels to an area of your face called the trigeminal nerve ganglion. There is a trigeminal nerve ganglion on each side of your face and it is located slightly in-front of your ear. Here the virus hides from the body’s immune system by becoming dormant or “sleeping”. Some triggers (like stress, fatigue, exposure to intense sunlight) “wake up” the virus which then becomes active in people who get cold sores. The nerves that provide sensation to your face (trigeminal nerves) branch out from where the herpes simplex virus is hiding. When the virus “wakes up” it travels down these nerves to your lips and mouth area, eventually infecting lip cells. Cold sores usually take place close to the original infection site. Infected lip cells become the visible sores we call cold sores.
The herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores cannot be cured. After you get infected, the virus stays in your body for the rest of your life. If you get fever blisters often, cold sore treatments can prevent or reduce the number of cold sores you get and how severe they are.
The faster you treat a cold sore, the better. You have to treat a cold sore before you actually see or feel something, so it is important to recognize what triggers the sore to activate in your body. See what might set off your next cold sore and avoid it at all costs.
If the triggers are unknown to you, start the treatment of the cold sore if you feel the tingling. Treatment may include lip balm, cold sore creams, ointments, cold sore lotions or sometimes pills. With these methods of treatment you may be able to shorten the length of time you have a cold sore. During all the stages of a cold sore it is still useful to treat it.
