When Your Baby or Toddler Gets a Cold Sore or Canker Sore

This little one has both canker sores (inside upper lip) and a cold sore (the swelling on bottom lip).  Canker sores, also called mouth ulcers, appear inside the mouth; cold sores, on outer outer lips, nose, chin, cheeks.

It’s quite common for babies and young children to have one type of sore or the other, but also, to have both at the same time because the triggers are the same:  stress/fussiness, over-tired, some kind of irritation in or around the mouth (teething, injury, dental procedure), a temporarily impaired immune system due to cold or flu, and too much sun-exposure can cause a cold sore.

Enviable perks of babyhood is freedom of worry how to make the mortgage payment and a complete lack of  embarrassment having a cold sore.   As adorable as this baby is with or without the sores, she is fully capable of transmitting the cold sore virus to a sumo wrestler or anyone through a kiss, or sharing eating/drinking utensils, even a spray of saliva, so take precautions to not let that happen.  And don’t re-use a towel, bib or wash cloth used to clean the mouth area without laundering it first. Don’t re-use a napkin or paper towel used for that purpose at all.  Be absolutely vigilent to stay away from the baby’s eye area with anything that isn’t completely clean (hands, washcloth, etc) if the baby – or you – has a cold sore.

Cold Sores Begone Stick™ is all natural, a chapstick remedy to apply as soon as the first sign of a cold sore appears for a baby, toddler or very young child.  It should heal within one to three days.  If you feel more comfortable to wipe off the top of the stick with a napkin or skim the thinnest layer off the top with a knife between applications or infections, do that.  Once your child is old enough to recognize the first symptom, a tingle, itch or numb sensation, the stick should be applied then, which will abort the infection before it has a chance to form and surface.  It works this way to prevent a cold sore for everyone, regardless of age.  www.ColdSoresBegone.com

There’s no early warning symptom of a canker sore inside the lips, on the tongue, gums or elsewhere, just its sudden appearance which often causes terrible pain when eating or drinking, or even if not, just as it does for adults.  CK.Toddler.UnderTongue.We want to get rid of that troublemaker immediately.  That’s where Canker Sores Begone Stick™ is important.  Similar to Cold Sores Begone Stick™, a chapstick, the consistency of the canker stick is much softer for easier spreadabilit*Tube CKy inside the wet environment of the mouth.  It won’t sting like over-the-counter remedies.  No, you don’t put the entire stick inside the mouth!  You use your fingertip to swipe off a small amount, dry the canker sore with a small piece of paper towel  if you need to, and plop the remedy on. If it doesn’t adhere because of saliva, go back, dry it again and be a little faster to apply.  That canker sore should be gone within a day or two.  www.CankerSoresBegone.com.

If your baby lets you borrow it, both remedies will work for you like this too.  If sharing the sticks between people, especially with babies, I would take the extra precaution and thinly skim off the top layer of the stick between applications.  An alternate to ordering from my websites, Sprouts Farmers Market carries both remedies as does Atkins/Chamberlins Health Food stores, and may be other health food stores in your area that do as well.

Twitter advertising found NOT successful by this expert marketer

I found Sarah Staar through her ad for a free webinar on affiliate marketing, which I’ve been interested in, to transition from the cycler/matrix online opportunities that have a high failure rate.search  She’s a true online expert with up-to-date, highly useful advice, techniques, and how-to’s.  If you’re a marketer, among all the ‘experts’ to follow, she’s a worthy one.  www.SarahStarr.com.

I’ve been in business for myself for 25 years and most of that time has been running sales/distribution for 2 remedies I created years ago that’s sold in the natural products industry, www.ColdSoresBegone.com and www.CankerSoresBegone.com, both online and in health food stores (i.e. Sprouts Farmers Market).

In all this time, by far, the largest expense I’ve had has been unsuccessful advertising.  You can understand then why I’m so grateful to have found Sarah’s post about Twitter advertising, since I have been considering it.

The following is an excerpt from her recent newsletter:

Advertising on Twitter
Whilst I was in America one of the buzzes was about advertising on Twitter, but I couldn’t find anybody actually making money through twitter advertising.

Now the interesting thing is Back in 2009 the buzz was all about free traffic from Twitter. Every seminar you went to there was always somebody selling some sort of software to automatically get you tons of traffic using Twitter.

I remember attending one of these events, taking loads of notes rushing home and purchasing the Twitter software, and then I went out and purchased 5000 Twitter accounts.

To cut a long story short, yes it did generate an absolute ton of traffic however nobody bought anything and it all ended up being a big waste of my time and money…..

Last week I was going through my notes which I took whilst in America and I remembered that Twitter advertising thing that people are talking about.

So Monday I set up a Twitter advertising campaign just really to see what would happen.

So far my results have not been great, I’ve been sending the traffic directly to one of my squeeze pages. It’s been costing me around $10-$15 person that joins my email list which is mega expensive, and so far no one’s bought anything.

I will carry on my testing for another week and try and tweak a few things to see if I can make Twitter advertising work.

I will let you know my results next week. But for the time being……

Back to writing info junkie stuff with a dash of small business

If you’ve read this blog in the past, you know I’m a small business owner.  All the hard work and no days off now behind me with the recent re-launch this past January of Cold Sores Begone Stick™ and Canker Sores Begone Stick™.

They’re both still equally effective, but now are all natural, organic, and in balm sticks vs the previous liquid.  Still safe for even young children.
