How: How long did you use the athlete's foot cream? It can take a few weeks of using it twice a day for you to notice an improvement. Have you tried changing your soap? It may be extremely dry, which is why the vaseline is working. You can try a heavy cream (in a jar) like eucerin or aquaphor. If the problem persists you should see your doctor for an evaluation and treatment.
I hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Is vaseline good or bad for cold sores?

Probably bad.: The vaseline only keeps the area moist which would delay healing and it doesn't kill the virus. Abreva is what would work better for cold sore when you first feel the tingle in the lip area. It keeps the area dry to heal faster. Valtrex (valacyclovir) used at initial onset is good systemically, but best combo with abreva. You can also use laser treatment at initial tingling onset also with your dentist. ...Read more
