Instantly prevent the cold sore eruption by applying Cold Sores Begone™ when you feel the tingle.  A life saver!

Don’t Let a Cold Sore Ruin Valentine’s Day When It’s So Easy to Prevent!

The mouth conveys beauty and sensuality, especially with close physical contact……unless you have a cold sore.

If you’re prone to cold sores, you probably know they’re triggered when your immune system is compromised by lack of sleep, stress and emotional upsets, irritation or pain in or around the mouth, like a dental procedure or having a lip line tatoo.   Too much sun or wind exposure are common causes too.

What to do about it?  You know the drill – get enough quality sleep, eat healthy and include plenty of fruits and vegetables high in anti-oxidants, handle your stress with the plethora of ways to do it – exercise, yoga, meditation, contemplative music, breathing techniques, self-hypnosis.

There’s no shortage of relaxing, soothing, meditative videos on YouTube.  This is my all time favorite calming video, A Good Day,  5-1/2 minutes long.

So, you feel the dreaded ‘tingling’ sensation somewhere on the lips.  Now what?  Some people like applying a used but cooled tea bag. The next one is, how should I say it….ok, gross, that’s what it is, but a few folks have sworn to me it works – apply some of your ear wax. I warned you! LOL! Others like to take L-lysine or a prescription drug, such as Valtrax, but may miss the short window to use it if you’re away from home.

Another option is a topical remedy I invented for myself over 20 years ago, now commercially known as Cold Sores Begone™.  It’s non-toxic, safe for children of any age, and best of all, it prevents the eruption altogether.  The ingredients contain herbs known for their anti-viral properties, so at the tingle, apply a few drops, and bingo, infection aborted, you’re good to go.

It’s packaged in an unbreakable, pocketsize bottle to always keep with you just in caseCold Sores Begone™ is available at many health food stores across the U.S., including Whole Foods Market and other regional chains (ie Sprouts, Henry’s Marketplace, Chamberlin’s).  There are advantages to purchasing it on my website or calling my office (888-877-6315).  The price is the same, $11/btl, the shipping is a flat fee, only $2 (and included in the refund if you don’t like the product for any reason). Also:

  • Saves time
  • Saves money on gas
  • If outside California, no sales tax
  • Ships immediately

So, go out there and have a cold sore-free Valentine’s Day; in fact, better, a cold sore-free life!
