Frequently Asked Questions:
How is ABREVA different from the over-the-counter cold sore remedies I have already been using?
Abreva is the only FDA approved non-prescription cold sore medicine that can actually shorten healing time and the duration of symptoms. The sooner you start using ABREVA, the sooner you can begin healing your cold sore.
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.
