US Patent No. 6,211,243B1

A patented new approach (US 6,211,243B1) to treating cold sores - rubbing the cold sore with the applicator tip delivers the germicidal medicine directly to the site of the infection.
Cold Sores and Fever Blisters are both caused by the Herpes Simplex virus (typically HSV-1) and are just different popular names for the HSV-caused lesions.


A well-intentioned kiss can transfer the virus to another individual. Children are highly at risk.

After touching a cold sore:

  • Wash your hands immediately with warm water and soap
  • Do not touch your eyes
  • Do not touch your genitals or other parts of the body. It is possible to transfer the virus to other parts of the body (autoinoculation)
  • Occasionally an additional treatment may be required. In some people, a lesion may appear to start healing and recur a day or more later. This will require an additional treatment.
