Your skin is burning, itching, tingling. The herpes virus is on the prowl, and everyone who has ever experienced it knows the pain and suffering it can bring. It forms small, painful blisters that are particulary irritating on the lips.
The active ingredient of Silicea Cold Sore Lip Gel is silica gel (silicic acid gel), a compound formed from silica and water. What makes silica gel so special is that apart from its soothing effect on the burning and itching sensation it has an unusually high bonding capacity with water and wound secretions. This means the secretions from the cold sores are bound to the gel and the blisters are systematically dried out. In this way the spread of the virus is reduced and the healing process is accelerated.
