abreva®, 4 Grams
The ONLY Non-Prescription Cold Sore 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® cream, the more effective the medicine will be. So for best results, use abreva® cream at the very start of the cold sore – when you feel the first sign of the tingle, redness, bump or itch.
abreva® cream is different from other over-the-counter cold sore products. Only abreva® cream contains 10% Docosanol, which helps to shorten the healing time of cold sores and the duration of symptoms including tingling, pain, itching and burning.
