What is Blistex Relief Cream?

Blistex Relief Cream is a treatment for cold sores which can also help to relieve dry and chapped lips. If you’re suffering from an irritating cold sore, apply Blistex Relief Cream right away to help to relieve pain and irritation. Ideal for those looking for a cold sore solution which can also protect and moisturise their lips.


What are cold sores?

Cold sores are small, fluid-filled blisters which can appear anywhere on your face but are commonly found around your mouth and lips. Cold sores are caused by a very contagious virus which lives in your skin. Once you have caught the virus that causes cold sores, it will stay in your skin for the rest of your life, making cold sores appear periodically.


How will this product soothe my cold sores?

Blistex Relief Cream contains the active ingredients of ammonia and liquefied phenol. Phenol has antiseptic qualities, helping disinfect the area around your cold sore and helping to keep healthy skin safe. Ammonia helps to reduce redness in cold sores and dry chapped lips.   


How to use Blistex Relief Cream.

If you would like to use Blistex Relief Cream to soothe a cold sore, begin use as soon as cold sore symptoms appear. Apply cream to the area every hour for quick relief from discomfort.

If you have cracked and chapped lips, apply Blistex Relief Cream to your lips whenever you feel like they need rehydration.
