Preparing for travel can be a stressful time. Cold Sores love Stress. Cold Sores dont like sun – so advice as always is to keep them covered with as high a factor as you can get in lip cream.

There are also protective patches that you can purchase , because the last thing you want is to have a big red sore on your lips as you approach Mr Handsome or Ms Pretty.

All that said , with COVID-19 we may not be travelling anytime soon , but we can live in hope – and book for 2022!
