What is Blistex Relief Cream?

Blistex relief cream is a medicated treatment for cold sores, chapped and cracked lips. Its formulation helps the lips regain hydration, promoting healing, leaving them feeling soft again. It can also help provide relief from the discomfort of cold sores.

Directions for use

For cracked and chapped lips - Apply to the lips every hour. If you are exposed to high winds or intense weather conditions, you may need to apply it more often and with more care.

For cold sores - Gently apply the cream to the lips every hour to provide relief. Avoid sharing your cream with others if being used directly on the cold sore.
