With kids going back to school, stress can be at an all time high. That can trigger a cold sore. There’s no quicker way to dash confidence. The last thing teens, young adults, and adults want to deal with is a painful and unsightly cold sore. The following are some tips about dealing with and caring for cold sores.
Don’t Let a Cold Sore Ruin Your Confidence
I’ve never had a cold sore. However, my husband gets them and I see firsthand how painful they can be. Like many others, his tend to be triggered by stress, illness, or too much sun. He can always tell when one is forming because he says his lip will hurt, burn, itch and tingle. So what can you do to help relieve pain, or lengthen the breakout time?
Nip it in the bud
When you feel the tell-tale signs of that cold sore coming on, get some Aubio Cold Sore Treatment Gel. Their gel is clinically proven to help aid in faster healing, and soothing of a cold sore. It contains Sarracenia Extract, which is an all natural, botanical cold sore phenomenon. This, along with other natural ingredients helps to add moisture, provides pain relief, and helps to heal a cold sore quickly.
Cool the Cold Sore
The Aubio Cold Sore Treatment Gel with help cool and soothe your sore. You can also apply cool compresses to it when feasible, to help aid in pain relief. An over the counter pain medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen will help aid in pain relief as well.
Protect Your Lips from the Sun
If you’re looking to help prevent a cold sore outbreak, then you need to protect your lips from the sun. Aubio Hydrating Lip Therapy is a lip balm with broad spectrum UVA/UVA sunscreen to help keep your lips protected. It will also hydrate them too.
