Why use medicated lip balm?

Treat Sore or Already Chapped Lips With A Medicated Lip Care Product.

If dryness, cracking or soreness of the lip has already developed, it is especially important to use a medicated product to provide relief. A product with a penetrating analgesic can soothe the lips quickly and effectively. Blistex Medicated Lip Balm seals in lip moisture to prevent drying of lip tissue. Blistex Lip Ointment delivers penetrating medication, and is the only lip ointment that contains moisture. Blistex Lip Medex provides ultra-cooling relief for sore lips.


Preventing and Controlling Cold Sores and Fever Blisters

Very few sufferers realize that simple preventive measures, like medicated lip balms, can minimize the impact of these irritating afflictions. Cold sores and fever blisters tend to develop when an individual has a cold or fever but can also be triggered by sun exposure, emotional distress, intestinal illness and menstruation.

Eliminating all of the sources that can contribute to the onset of cold sores and fever blisters is impossible. But an alert sufferer can sometimes detect warning signs and prepare their lips to be more resistant to these outbreaks. Itching, tingling and a heat sensation usually mark the spot where a sore or blister will appear within 24 hours.

As soon as these signs are detected, Blistex recommends massaging a medicated lip care product, such as Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, gently into the affected area up to four times daily. The penetrating analgesic provides quick, effective relief and Ointment's moisturizing properties soften the area to help prevent cracking.
