Is it really possible to prevent an embarrassing cold sore?

Many cold sore sufferers will be pleased to know they can indeed prevent a cold sore from surfacing. However, it’s important to take an antiviral medication or apply a good remedy when the early warning ‘tingle’ symptom occurs.

Once a cold sore starts to erupt (redness, a small bump, swelling, etc.), results can vary among individuals just how successful it will be to help minimize its appearance and healing time.

There are FDA-approved medications available for recurrent cold sores, but for those who prefer to go the natural route, there are also options available that many swear by.  Like anything else, what works great for one may not for another, but a good place to start is to research consumer reviews.

Cold Sores Begone Stick™

Safe for kids too.

Cold Sores Begone™, a remedy I developed over 20 years ago, has been highly recommended by customers, even by those who could not find satisfactory results with other products.  It has been endorsed by the health editors of PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH magazines.

Cold Sores Begone Stick™ is an all natural, organic lip balm and an excellent choice to start with.   Feel the tingle, apply.  You’re good to go.  Website:

About Robin Barr

I was born in New Jersey, and when I was 3, my parents moved to Southern CA where I've lived since in Covina, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, Laguna Niguel and now Mission Viejo. I love dogs and cats and compassionate about all living creatures. What do I do for a living? I invent problem solvers. Have you seen Cold Sores Begone™ or Canker Sores Begone™ in health food stores or online? Mine. I like using stuff that won’t kill me later so both remedies are non-toxic, safe enough for small children, and topical (I don't swallow pills easily). If you want to prevent a cold sore from materializing when you feel the early tingle symptom, apply a few drops of Cold Sores Begone™. Done. If you're plagued with those painful ulcerations inside the mouth (canker sores), apply a few drops of Canker Sores Begone™a few times a day, and it should disappear in 2-3 days. I was elated when PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH magazines told the world my two products work as promised. Afterall, I'm just an accidental entrepreneur.
