Re: Update! It wasn't chapped lips! Cold sores!!!! SEVERELY chapped lips. What to do?

Glad you figured it out and boo! to cold sores. I hope he heals up quickly! I don't get them but DH does. I know your guy is still young, but he will continue to get them now that he has had an outbreak so it's important to educate him on proper care. Never share drinks , wash hands (don't touch your eyes! - you can get them there) and to be cautious with everyone else in the house as it can transfer easily even on cloth. My DH can tell he's getting one by the start of a tingling feeling. Also, I think (aside from low immunity, fever) excess sun exposure and actually even chapped lips can lead to an outbreak. I know nothing about this ointment, but saw it advertised recently
Little LipsTM Super Lysine+TM 7 gm Ointment Hope he feels better soon!
