hi all - here's my PSA: I've had herpes outbreaks around my mouth and nose off and on for about 30 yrs. from stress, sun, who knows what. very painful messy and embarrassing. Tried all kinds of remedies then found this stuff at Dollar Tree stores! - Medicated Camphor+Phenol - cold sore treatment with drying action - made by ChapIce.
It's a buck and takes about 48 hrs. to kick in, takes about a week to clear it up.
Buy 5 tubes and you'll always have one around.
