I'm a biologist, not an MD, but I must advise you and readers of this website to never put nail polish remover in your mouth. Nail polish removers contain acetone and other organic solvents that are known to, or are highly suspected to, CAUSE CANCER. Please do not use this substance in your mouth.

The phrase 'cold sore' is misleading.I used to suffer from frequent cold sores in the summer, triggered by Ultra Violet light. I started to apply a factor 20 lip block every day under my lipstick or just on it's own. That was 8 years ago and I have not had one since. I always reapply frequently both in the winter and summer. Prevention is definitely better than cure, as once you have one it has to run it's course. however you treat it. Good luck. It works for me.
