I am prone to cold sores, what can I do?

As cold sores are very contagious, firstly make sure you are not passing these on to anyone else, or catching them from someone else! Avoid sharing towels, for example. Do not let the lips dry up, especially in the sun. UV can be a trigger for cold sores so use a good strong UV lip balm.  The HPV-1 virus that causes cold sores can be kept in check by using a specialist lip balm such as Beyond Organic Vanilla Lip Balm.  This contains a special extract from the Alpine Rose plant that helps to prevent cold sores from occurring. It does this by stopping the HPV-1 virus from adhering to your cells. Other organic oils and extracts in the lip balm will help to heal cold sores, but prevention is key!
