FEEL. ACT. HEAL.

When you feel a tingle, that usually means a cold sore is on the way—and you’re in for 10 days of pain and frustration. But with Abreva®, you can significantly reduce healing time,*—if you act fast. Here’s how:

1. Before you experience any visible symptoms, you’ll feel the tell-tale cold sore tingle.

It’s usually described as a burning, itching sensation that can make the skin around your mouth feel tight and irritated. It’s your body’s way of telling you that a cold sore is on the way. The tingle starts the countdown and acts as a reminder to begin treatment.

2. Once you feel the tingle, it’s time to act.

That’s because when the cold sore virus activates, it begins to spread from cell to cell. Abreva® goes to work immediately, penetrating deep into the skin and getting right to the source of the spreading virus. The faster you act and treat, the better the results.

3. Once into the skin, Abreva® works to shorten the healing time of a cold sore.

It quickly gets to the core of the virus and blocks it, creating a barrier to protect healthy skin cells. ** That’s why, when used at the first tingle, Abreva® can heal a cold sore in as few as 2½ days.
