ABREVA® CREAM KNOCKS OUT THE COMPETITION.

Nothing else shortens the healing time of your cold sore. Nothing.*

There’s only one cold sore medicine* approved by the FDA to shorten the duration of healing time, and that’s Abreva®! Other non-prescription cold sore products only temporarily relieve the symptoms. Only Abreva® protects healthy cells, which helps prevent the virus from spreading.

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.


* Compared to other non-prescription products.
