LIP CLEAR Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment
Cold and flu season also can mean unsightly cold sores & fever blisters pop up prior to hitting those holiday parties! LIP CLEAR Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment, an all-natural treatment, utilizes active zinc oxide, as well as lysine (an essential amino acid) and 14 other natural ingredients to help treat cold sores faster.
According to a Southern California University of Health Sciences study:
• LIP CLEAR Lysine+ reduced the duration of cold sores by 50% or more compared to untreated cold sores
• Median time to complete cold sore healing was four days
• Cold sores treated with LIP CLEAR Lysine+ healed faster than with leading OTC or prescription brands costing three to five times more
• Within three days, cold sore symptoms that were either completely eliminated or dramatically reduced, included tingling, burning, itching, tenderness, prickling, soreness and blistering
• A remarkable 40% of the participants had full cure by end of the third day.
