What is a cold sore?

A cold sore is a fluid-filled blister or a cluster of blisters that appear on your lips and/or around your mouth. Cold sores are also called fever blisters, oral herpes, or herpes labialis.

Cold sores, fever blisters, or recurrent herpes labialis are annoyingly painful blisters. They break out, leak fluid, and crust over. Before they start to go away.


What causes them to crack and split?

Because the scabs that form are not flexible at all, these painful scabs often crack when you move your lips, adding to the painful annoyance.

When you smile, talk, or move your mouth in anyway, the blister or scab cracks causing a form of facial trauma. It is common for swelling to occur in and around the cold sore, so do not be overly alarmed if/when this happens. Before the healing process can recommence, any obvious signs of damage must heal.

Depending on the severity and depth of the cold sore will depend on how badly it cracks.

"I would definitely recommend having this on stand by if you too suffer from this unsightly wound."

I’m a regular sufferer through summer from burnt lower lip, resulting in blisters and cold sores. As a result it usually takes 2 weeks of chemist products to see any healing results. This is the first time I’ve tried Herlip by recommendation and I was instantly impressed. The colour disguised the redness, and dried the wound instantly. I was so impressed I never missed any of my social functions. Day 3 of using Herlip and the healing results are remarkable.

"At last an effective Cold Sore Cream that doesn’t just sit on the lip and do nothing."

I finally have a cold sore cream the actively works to stop the cold sore in its tracks. My method was to vigorously rub Herlip onto the infected area. The positive outcome is noticeable within hours of the application. I applied it immediately after I got the tingle on the lip. It stopped the blisters progressing to raw stage. All in all, it had amazing results and will definitely be using it as my go to coldsore treatment

"Amazing results & i love
the applicator"

“I loved the way it was packed. In a little pump…so clean and hygienic and not a tonne of product comes out when you press down. Unlike zovirax. And the colour covered up the white and red blister that usually comes with cold sores I get PLUS it matches the foundation. The smell was very pleasant too.
All in all, it had amazing results and will definitely be using it as my go to coldsore treatmen.”
