This lemon balm lip salve, LomaProtect for cold sores, works in the same way as LomaHerpan cream, but also contains a sunblock. Sunlight triggers cold sores so adding sunblock makes the salve extra useful for dealing with facial cold sores. You can use it daily as a way to prevent cold sore, or just when you feel a cold sore coming up.
Melissa, the active ingredient in these products, contains a molecule that blocks the receptor site on the skin cell, so the virus cannot get in.
4.75 gram salve stick.

I have suffered with facial cold sores for most of my life. This product has transformed my life !!
It’s an amazing miracle and I have not had an outbreak since using it !! Even if I get a sore appearing it stops it in its tracks.
I can’t thank you enough. I use the lip balm every day and [Lomaherpan] cream if a sore starts to appear. X
