Carmex® Cold Sore Treatment is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cole Sore Stopper A few months ago I suffered with a miserable cold sore that just wouldn't respond to any of those highly esteemed products currently on the market. As a last ditch effort I purchased Carmex Cold Sore Treatment. Seeing as I have loved Carmex lip care since it was only sold in a tub, and have recently come to love the Carmex hand care products, which work great on cracked fingers, I thought "what do I have to lose?" Let me tell you, I lost nothing! It took away the pain of my cold sore and helped it heal. Just today, I felt the start of another cold sore, and the first thing I looked for was Carmex Cold Sore Treatment. I've told all my friends to start using it. This is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANK YOU!!!! I've been getting winter cold sores on my lip for YEARS. I've tried chapstick, blistex, everything and nothing worked. I was always scared to try Carmex Cold Sore Treatment because it was an expensive investment and I wasn't sure if it would work. One day I bit the bullet and bought a tube. I'm so glad I did. You apply it as soon as your feel the cold sore starting. Sometimes the cold sore develops more but usually it stops it in its tracks. When it does develop more, it usually "dries out" and doesn't break open and hurt. I really highly recommend this product to anyone!! Definitely worth the price and it last for a pretty long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheaper and more effective I first tried this product over Abreva because it had a lower price point. I was amazed with the results. I have suffered with cold sores in my nose for almost ten years and my nose would swell and become very inflamed and it was extremely embarrassing. I used Abreva and it would never seem to help at all. I use Carmex the second I feel the burning sensation in my nose and it keeps my nose from becoming inflamed and visibly irritated and best of all no one can tell that a sore is even there. This product has made all the difference in the world. I work in the haircare industry and people don't want you touching them if you have a visible cold sore on your face. Thanks.
