A human research study was done in October of 2017 to test 0.5% Propolis in Lip Balm versus Aciclovir Cream 5% for patients with Herpes sores – fever blisters and cold sores.  189 patients used Propolis Cream and 190 patients were treated with Aciclovir Cream.  Application was made five times a day.

Propolis  extract lip balm 0.5% was found superior in the treatment of episodes of Herpes labialis over Aciclovir Cream 5% in patients.  Encrustation or epithelization of the sores (crusting over, closing up, forming a scab) occurred a day sooner (4 days) with the Propolis Lip Balm.  In addition, there were significant faster improvements of the pain, burning, itching, tension and swelling with the propolis lip balm versus the Aciclovir Cream.
