Nothing else shortens the healing time of your cold sore. Nothing.*
There's only one cold sore medicine* approved by the FDA to speed up healing time, and that's Abreva ®! Other non-prescription cold sore products only relieve the symptoms - they do not block the virus. Only Abreva ® contains 10% docosanol, which helps prevent the virus from spreading cell to cell.
Products like Carmex® Cold Sore Treatment, OraLabs Store Brand, Blistex® Medicated and Orajel® Single Dose can't stand up to your cold sores like Abreva ® cream to heal fast. Abreva ® cream is the only non-prescription medication approved by the FDA that is proven to shorten healing time.
