I can still remember my first cold sore. I was so embarrassed and I was sure that the whole world could see it and that it was the topic of conversation for everyone in my school. Over twenty years later and I am still dealing with an occasional cold sore. I only get about one cold sore a year, but it almost always comes at a stressful time or when I need to look my best – it figures. I have tried many cold sore products over the years but I can honestly say that the one that works the best is Abreva. In fact, Abreva is the only over-the-counter medication approved by the FDA that is proven to shorten the healing time of a cold sore.
Abreva comes in a teeny-tiny tube that looks like it won’t last long. Do not let that fool you. Abreva is so effective that I often have to throw away expired Abreva tubes because my once yearly cold sore outbreak requires so little of the product before it is healed up. I have some in my medicine cabinet right now because it has been very stressful around here and I want to look my best for New Year’ Eve. I know that if a pesky cold sore starts to pop up, I can apply Abreva at the first tingle and that cold sore is going down!
To be honest, I was a little unsure about posting this because, let’s face it, cold sores can be very embarrassing. While most people actually contract the virus that causes cold sores, only about 20% to 40% of virus carriers ever get a cold sore. If you are in that group, try Abreva and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
