Yes Carmex lip balm that's medicated can help protect and heal a cold sore.

The Carmex lip balm will also help to moisturize your dry cracked lips if you have dry cracked lips.

Another way to get rid of cold sores is to apply some baby orajel to the cold sore. The baby orajel helps to numb the cold sore so you won't feel pain while eating or drinking anything and will also get rid of the cold sore in 1 to 2 days.

You can use the regular orajel if you want or other cold sore medicine but the baby orajel has a better taste to it so it's what I use to get rid of my cold sores and it really works.

Carmex is good for a chapped nose.

You can apply some Carmex to the irritated and chapped nose to help get rid of the chapped nose and prevent chapped nose as well.

Vaseline does help with a chapped nose.

The Vaseline which is petroleum jelly can help the nose retain moisture and help the nose stay moist which in turn helps treat the chapped nose and prevent a chapped nose as well.

To soothe a chapped nose, apply some Aloe Vera gel to the nose, apply petroleum jelly to the nose, use a humidifier, use tissues with lotion, apply some lotion to the chapped nose, use damp wipes, use a nasal spray, take a steamy shower, apply a warm compress to the nose or sit in a Sauna.

To cure your nose after a cold, drink plenty of water, use a humidifier, use some Vaseline, Petroleum Jelly or other lip balm or Aloe Vera on your nose.

You can also use moisturizers, such as petroleum jelly, to sooth your dry nose.

Just take a little bit of petroleum jelly with your finger and place it around the inside of your nose to keep it moisturized.

When you do use a moisturizer, just take care with how often you use it and the amount you use.
