Abreva Cold Sore Cream 2g (0.07oz)

Abreva contains the only OTC medicine approved by the FDA to shorten healing time and duration of symptoms.

You are not alone

An estimated one-in-five Americans is affected by cold sores each year. Most people who experience them get two to three cold sore outbreaks each year. Just before and during an outbreak, the cold sore infection can be easily passed on to others. It is especially important to be aware of early warning signs that a cold sore is coming, and to be sure to avoid close physical contact when you have one.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

A blister, or cluster of blisters around your mouth, is caused by the cold sore virus. After the cold sore has healed, the virus stays dormant in your body but can be reactivated by everyday triggers like stress, sunlight, extreme hot or cold weather, colds and flu, lack of sleep, or menstruation.

The Sooner, the Better

A typical cold sore outbreak can last as long as seven to ten days. The sooner you begin using ABREVA, the more effective the medicine will be. So for best results, use ABREVA at the very start of the cold sore – when you feel the first sign of the tingle, redness, bump or itch.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How is ABREVA different from the Over-The-Counter cold sore remedies I have already been using?

Abreva contains 10% docosanol, the only FDA approved non-prescription ingredient that can actually shorten healing time and the duration of symptoms including tingling, pain, itching, and burning. The sooner you start using ABREVA, the sooner you can begin healing your cold sore. No other Over-The-Counter cold sore product heals your cold sore faster.

Who can use ABREVA?

Adults and children 12 years and over can use ABREVA.

How often can I apply ABREVA?

ABREVA should be used five times a day until the cold sore is healed. Apply it directly to the cold sore at the first sign of a tingle, redness, bump or itch for best results.

Can I apply cosmetics on top of ABREVA?

Yes, cosmetics such as lipstick may be applied over ABREVA. However, use a separate applicator, like a cotton swab, to apply cosmetics over an unhealed cold sore to avoid spreading the infection. For best results, remove any cosmetics prior to applying ABREVA.
