Sometimes, it seems so much easier to just snuggle in deep under the covers and hibernate. Realistically, that is not always even remotely possible as an option. When the symptoms of a cold sore start to really become an issue, there is just very little that can done to help. The news of the recent launch of the New Carmex® Cold Sore Treatment is a welcomed relief from cold sores and fever blisters.
Carmex Cold Sore Treatment is touted as the only over-the-counter cold sore treatment that is specially formulated to work on contact to help the discomforting pain and itch with 10% Benzocaine while also being able to minimize the appearance of a cold sore with immediate results. This breakthrough product features the special TriPLEX™ Formula advanced technology, which combines three different optical brighteners and filler technologies that each provide unique appearance minimizing benefits.
According to Carmex, "the combination of the three technologies found in TriPLEX™ Formula advanced technology allows this new formulation to provide cold sore appearance softening benefits. The first technology bends light as it approaches the cold sore, the second technology helps fill in unevenness of the cold sore, and the third technology helps correct the skin tone of the cold sore. The formula also contains a blend of silicone elastomers, commonly used in high-end skincare products, to give the product a smooth, silky feel."
Research from National Institutes of Health (NIH) states, "herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), the virus that causes cold sores, infects more than half of the U.S. population by the time they reach their 20s. The two biggest physical complaints cold sore sufferers described were pain, which likely reminds them that the cold sore is there, and the appearance of the sore itself, which can lead to the sufferer feeling isolated and self-conscious. These unsightly sores can make the sufferer feel helpless, as outbreaks are unpredictable and always seem to happen at the most inopportune of times."
With no over-the-counter product capable of curing a cold sore (as in remove the virus from one’s system), the breakthrough Carmex Cold Sore Treatment can help cold sore and fever blister sufferers to "feel more comfortable, confident and empowered to face the world."
