Preventing Cold Sores and More

Cold sore prevention is best practices is to avoid contact with an infected person. Avoiding contact with an infected person may be next to impossible, so the next best option is for the virus to remain dormant.

While many other products focus on treating the cold sore during and after an outbreak, Advanced H-Plex Defense Formula 11 focuses on what triggers the cold sore outbreak. If H-Plex Defense is not able to help protect your immune system from the triggers and subsequent cold sore outbreak, the secondary goal is to help with the frequency and severity of outbreaks.

However, if you feel the symptoms of a cold sore outbreak coming on, there are several precautions you can take to help stop the potential spreading of the virus:

  • Avoid skin to skin contact with others, especially kissing.
  • Do not rub the affected area and touch someone else.
  • Do not share food, utensils or drink from the same glass as anyone else.
  • If you smoke, do not share your cigarette, pipe, cigar or other products with anyone else.


Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). H-Plex Defense can reduce the severity of the HSV virus and relieving symptoms and inhibiting replication.
