Yes, BUT: It will not do you any good. If you have a problem of recurring nature, see a dermatologist for correct diagnosis & effective remedy.

Carmex for Cold Sore: By using carmex for cold sores, you can effectively reduce the pain of fever blisters and shorten the duration to heal. It produces best results if used in the early stages of fever blisters. The earliest stage is the tingling or burning sensation you feel a day or less before the fever blister forms. For many people, carmex helps them deal with the pain of cold sores.
