(NewsUSA) - Everyone experiences stress at some point in life, and teenagers are certainly no exception. Between school, homework, dating and extracurricular activities such as sports and clubs, stress can be everywhere for the average teen, and that means fatigue is not far behind.
According to recent statistics from the National Sleep Foundation, six in 10 American high school students average less than eight hours of sleep per day, a fact that's likely related to the multitude of daily activities that many teens undertake.
Unfortunately, states of stress and the fatigue that follows can trigger more than dozing in class or sweaty palms at the homecoming dance. Stress and fatigue can also aggravate certain types of viruses, including the one that causes cold sores.
Andrew Weiss, chief executive officer of Aeura Inc., knows all too well the impact that these painful blisters can have on a teen's life. His company made the first sublingual over-the-counter treatment for cold sores.
"As if acne isn't bad enough, now a higher percentage of teens find themselves living with the pain and shame of cold sores," Weiss said. "The [Aeura] Cold Sore Formula gives teens the ability to take control of their outbreaks, and a reason to put a smile back on their face."
Eight out of 10 Americans have the virus that causes cold sores, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While there is no cure for the virus, there are certain ways to lessen the severity of an outbreak and possibly expedite recovery.
But with their days consumed by school and extracurricular activities, many teenagers affected by the virus will inevitably neglect to treat it properly. That's why some parents take the initiative to help their teenagers recover if outbreaks occur.
When treating cold sores, natural, homeopathic products such as Aeura's sublingual treatment are among the most effective solutions. Because Aeura's formula is an over-the-counter medicine, it's often a popular choice among parents looking to help their busy teenagers at a moment's notice. The medication treats the cause of cold sores by boosting and strengthening the body's immune system.
Available at CVS, Meijer, Brooks/Eckerd, Pharmaca and other pharmacies nationwide, Aeura can be taken daily, at the first signs of an outbreak or anytime throughout.
