All day on drafts. Bought fenistil without much hope. The result was a surprise, the effect is just wonderful. Ulyana M., dispatcher

In recent years, it has become difficult to work with children - a cold on the lips does not look very pleasant, agree. What I just did not try! In addition, it should be noted, too much risk of all infecting with infection. I began to use Fenistil cream - in a couple of days the eruption dried out. Just keep in mind, the effect needs to be fixed and act according to the instructions (4 days). Then the bubbles will finally disappear. Tamara V., teacher
