Abreva Cold Sore Treatment Review and $25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

I will fully admit, I suffer from cold sores. I have suffered from cold sores since I have been a young girl and will tell you that they are downright painful! While genetics can affect whether you will be a cold sore sufferer (for instance my dad suffers to0), other more potent triggers include stress and fatigue.  Unfortunately, I have had cold sores at least 2-3 times a month since I was young, so I know just how disabling it could be! I am not alone either as 80 million Americans suffer from cold sores, which can be unsightly and painful.

384235 456707031034657 327667024 a Abreva Cold Sore Treatment Review and $25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!For instance, on Christmas, I had a cold sore underneath my tongue. It was so painful that I had trouble eating. Imagine the horror of not being able to eat some of the best foods on one my favorite holidays. No matter how hard I tried, I just had trouble eating. Cold sores can also be rather unpleasant to look at. Sometimes they form on the side of your mouth and they look unnoticeably bad!  When these cold sores form I have trouble putting on makeup and just feeling good. They make me have less confidence in myself, along with being horridly painful! I know on Christmas I just could not feel my best nor look my best!

It was my own fault that on Christmas that I did not bring Abreva with me. I absolutely LOVE ABREVA and tend to carry it with me wherever I go when I have a cold sore. Unfortunately on Christmas, I was so busy that I forgot to put Abreva in my pocketbook. Had I remembered to take it, my cold sore would have felt better instantly.

Cold sores can interrupt your routine, affect your confidence and make you want to hide from the world. Abreva is used to heal cold sores fast, and allows you to get back to all of life’s important moments and occasions. If you have never tried Abreva and are a cold sore sufferer, I highly recommend you do! Abreva is the only FDA approved over-the-counter cold sore treatment proven to shorten cold sore healing time and the #1 pharmacist over the counter cold sore treatment medicine.

You might be asking how Abreva works and I will gladly tell you! Abreva cold sore treatment penetrates deep to the root of your cold sore to heal it fast. It works by helping block  the spread of the virus to healthy cells. When I first feel the first tingle in my mouth (tingling is the first sign for me a big cold sore is coming on), I immediately apply it to the area of the cold sore. I try to get it at the first second of a tingle because usually the cold sore will turn bigger a few hours later. I use it up to 5 times daily to the affected cold sore until it is completely healed. It is recommended for those 12+ years of age and can be used for up to 10 days.

I have had tremendous success using Abreva. Being a cold sore sufferer, I finally found a medicine that will help my cold sores heal and get me out of pain! I have tried so many alternatives over the years, and nothing works as well as Abreva does! It is completely awesome and heals my cold sores fully. Abreva is a product I trust and would recommend 100 percent. Thank you Abreva for finally getting my cold sores away effectively and pain-free!

    I’ve never tried it…seems like an awesome product and it heals up cold sores quick. To be honest, I’ve never had a cold sore.

  2. says

    I have never tried it–but then-knock on wood–I do not get cold sores very often at all!! If I do I will definitely be looking into purchasing Abreva!!

  3. debbie jackson says

    I get them occassionally and can’t wait to see if it really reduces healing time debbie jackson

  4. Emi says

    I have not tried it but this feature I though was worthwhile: “Abreva cold sore treatment penetrates deep to the root of your cold sore to heal it fast. It works by helping block the spread of the virus to healthy cells.”

  5. Carole Ingram says

    I have not tried it before but it sounds like it is a miracle product for those that are affected by cold sores…I wonder if this product is available in Canada since my mom gets them every now and then.

  6. Lisa Brown says

    I have not had a cold sore, never tried Abreva, but my husband gets cold sores. He may like this product. I like your thorough explanation of how you used Abreva and how it worked for you.

  7. Crystal F says

    I have used it a ton unfortunately. I tend to get cold sores when I’m worn down or out in the sun too much. Thank you!

  8. Sandra C says

    One time I got three cold sores on one lip. It was so painful that I couldn’t stop crying. My hubby ran to the store and got Abreva. It helped them feel better right away and helped heal them too.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Tamar says

    I have not tried it, in fact I didn’t know about it, but I love that it is very effective especially after reading the comments to this effect.

  10. Margaret Smith says

    I haven’t used Abreva before, but after reading how it helps to heal cold sores quicker, I’d love to give it a try.

  11. Leslie Galloway says

    I’ve used Abreva, and it’s definitely the best treatment!

  12. Amanda Phillips says

    I noticed abreva a few years ago after I had just healed a cold sore and put it in the back of my mind in case I had another one. Thankfully I haven’t but I always think of it when I see a friend with one. I love that you can use it multiple times per day. I can’t stand medicine that you just have to suffer through the waiting time to get more relief!

  13. Katy M says

    I haven’t had a cold sore in years, so I haven’t tried it. I’ll sure remember it when one comes, though! I remember how awful they are.

  14. says

    sorry to be a nay sayer but it didn’t work for me. everyone’s system is different and i have heard great things about it. just so you know how different my system is,,, if i use cinnamon toothpaste it’s like i tried to brush with drano.

  15. Jen Haile says

    I’ve never tried it, but I like the fact that Abreva is the only FDA approved over-the-counter cold sore treatment proven to shorten cold sore healing time and the #1 pharmacist over the counter cold sore treatment medicine.

  16. Martha says

    I have never tried Abreva but the fact that it penetrates deep to stop the spread of the cold sore quickly would convince me to try it for sure.

  17. Geoff K says

    I haven’t tried it, but the fact that it’s the only FDA-approved OTC cold sore treatment is enough to sell me on its quality — thanks!

  18. michelle gilliland mcafee says

    I haven’t yet but my other half has and loved it so I plan on using it when I get a cold sore next.

  19. kailey says

    I’ve never used abreva but the way you sing its praises means i’ll have to try it if i ever get a cold sore

  20. kelly nicholson says

    Tell me if you ever tried Abreva and if you didn’t, what feature do you like the best from my post.

    no ,and that you can carry it whereever you go

  21. Sally G says

    I’ve never tried Abreva, but I like how you went into detail on how many times you had to apply it to the cold sore. Very informative and helpful!

  22. amber carroll says

    never have tried it and think from everything it says it would really help fast healing is really good cause cold sores i hate being seen in public!

  23. MaryAnn Casey says

    I’ve never had a cold sore but my son gets them. I never bought it because of the price. I wanted to know how well it works before buying it. Now I know it’s worth the money.

  24. says

    I have never used abreva because I can only remember having cold sores when I was younger. I think what I like most about the product is that it starts working from the first application. It’s nice to have something be more on the proactive side. :)

  25. Kortney Picker says

    I like that it heals the cold sore fast!! It is never fun to have something like a cold sore on your face, you feel like everyone is looking at it!

  26. Tracy Allen says

    I have not tried it. I like that it seems simple and FAST. My father suffers with several cold sores a year so I’m going to ask him about Abreva

  27. Paul T/Pauline T says

    yes I have tried them before and would not use any other brands beside theirs —– Paul T/Pauline T aka Paol Trenny ….. emscout9 at Hotmail dot com

  28. ANN*H says

    I have never tried Abreva, but heard so much about it. Next time Im getting this for my cold sore. Like the fast healing idea.

  29. amanda blue says

    I haven’t tried this product, but I am impressed with the fact that you recieved such quick relief for your pain with this product.

  30. Tari Lawson says

    I haven’t used it but I like that it “Abreva cold sore treatment penetrates deep to the root of your cold sore to heal it fast.”

  31. Rochelle says

    I haven’t personally used it but a family member has and she says it really helps and makes it heal faster. Thanks!

  32. michelle jonassen says

    I have never tried it because I do not get cold sores, but my good friend swears by it becuase it makes her cold sores heal so much quicker.

  33. Victoria Carlson says

    Never have tried it but when I do get a cold sore, I would love that Abreva is small enough to put in my purse so I can have it on hand as soon as I feel one coming on!

  34. Ashley Parks says

    I have had cold sores since I was a teenager and they have decreased in frequency as I have become older. However, I still get them a few times a year and I always keep Abreva with me! I put it on when I start to feel a “tingle” and keep applying it. I usually still get the sore for at least a week, but it keeps it from getting large and/or swollen. (When I was younger my lip/mouth would swell to twice its size. I looked like I’d been hit in the face!) So grateful for Abreva!!

  35. Angel says

    I’ve never tried it, but my ex-husband used it for his cold sores and it worked wonders. It was the only thing he found that he could count on.

  36. Kerry Amburgy-Dickson says

    I haven’t tried it yet as I rarely get cold sores. Whether I would try it or not would depend on what they were using as a painkiller since I am allergic to benzocaine/novacaine which is what is generally used as a painkiller in mouth and dental pain products.

  37. Lisa says

    I havent tried it, but I have always wanted to, telling me your personal experience, and reading some of the comments has made mo more likely to try it.

  38. Alycia M says

    I’ve never had a cold sore – I didn’t realize that so many American’s suffer from them!

    acartwrightmorell at gmail dot com

  39. joni says

    I have tried Abreva and not sure if it quickened the healing process or not. My best remedy is to cover the cold sore at night with a white paste toothpaste. It will get cakey. Works the best for me. An old dentist told me this trick.

  40. Alix Craw says

    I have had a few cold sores before, and I was reluctant to try it until the last time. I was amazed at how well it worked, I really wish I had used it before!

  41. nora says

    Knock wood!!! I have not had to deal with this problem, and I had little idea that they were so troublesome and occasionally debilitating…I’m so glad to hear that there is a product to alleviate dealing with a cold sore.

  42. Audra Weathers says

    I’ve never personally needed to try it, but I like that it works to completely heal the cold sore. I have a friend who gets cold sores a lot and this is always what they use; they say if you use it early on when you first feel one coming, it really shortens the time you have it.

  43. annette campbell says

    I keep a tube of Abreva in my purse at all times! I get cold sores frequently and I put this on when I feel one coming. It usually goes away very quickly

  44. Cary says

    I don’t have cold sores so I’ve never tried Abreva, but it’s great that you get such immediate results with it!

  45. Molly K says

    I have never tried it but I love that it is the only FDA approved OTC medicine to help treat and shorten the time you have a cold sore.

  46. terri moore says

    cold sores are the worst! I like that Abreva takes away the pain – they are so annoying and helps it to clear up fast.

  47. Aimee Fontenot says

    I used to get cold sores a lot in middle school, but I have never tried Abreva. I love that it’s proven to heal cold sores faster.

  48. Mary Cloud says

    I’ve never tried it but I like a mouth product that delivers a tingling sensation also because it shows me it’s working

  49. Sarah L says

    “I have tried so many alternatives over the years, and nothing works as well as Abreva does! It is completely awesome and heals my cold sores fully.”
    Thanks for the contest.

  50. Tian A. says

    I haven’t tried yet, and my favorite feature is it works by helping block the spread of the virus to healthy cells

  51. Monica Young says

    I have never had a cold sore (knock on wood lol) so I have never tried it. I do like that the product provides instant working relief. That’s a big plus in my book.

  52. renee walters says

    I have never had to use it, but I’ve heard it works well. Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway and happy New Year!

  53. Roxann says

    I have never tried but I like that Abreva is the only FDA approved over-the-counter cold sore treatment proven to shorten cold sore healing time and the #1 pharmacist over the counter cold sore treatment medicine.

  54. Margaret O'Connor says

    I haven’t tried it yet. I had a little tube of something prescribed to me years ago that I was using. I get cold sores about once a year. Glad to hear that this works. I will definitely try it next time I get a cold sore. The feature I like best from your post is your recommendation that it works. Thanks.

  55. Stephanie Larison says

    I’ve never had a cold sore before, but hubby gets them a few times a year. He uses this every time and it clears it right up!

  56. clynsg says

    I have never tried it–lucky enough to not have cold sores, at least not yet. I think the ease of using it is one of the best things about it.

  57. Mike Anderson says

    My son uses it. when ever he feels the need. This is such a great product hands down, works as it should.

  58. Kari Flores says

    I have never had a cold sore, thank goodness, but my husband gets them. He uses Abreva and the cold sore is gone in no time.

  59. Wendy McBride says

    I have tried it and it works. I like the patch also, but i think it should come with abreva. Patch has no medicine in it.

    wendym at cableone dot net

  60. Daniella Espinoza says

    I’ve never had a cold sore, but I know I would use Abreva if I ever got one. Everyone I know that suffers from cold sores swears by it!

  61. Renee Stegall says

    I have tried it and I agree it WORKS!! I start using it when I first feel a cold sore coming and it cuts down in duration of the cold sore dramatically!!!! I keep it stocked for emergencies! :)

  62. Kitty says

    Yes I have tried it and it works. It cuts down on the number of days to heal and it used to be by prescription and it has ingredients strong enough to actually work.

  63. Ciera Conkle says

    I have never used abreva, but my dad gets cold sores. I will definitely recommend this product to him.

  64. carol lewis says

    I have not tried it as do not have cold sores, but my Mom does and this should help her. She always told me there were painful. So this part is good: “Being a cold sore sufferer, I finally found a medicine that will help my cold sores heal and get me out of pain!”

  65. randi says

    I’ve never tried it but if it works as well as you say I’m going to invest in some! I just got one over the holidays!

  66. Lisa Fonseca says

    I haven’t tried it but my sons and husband have and they swear by it. It takes the cold sores away within a day or so. They used to last over a week before they started using Abreva.

  67. Vikki Billings says

    I have not tried it but my mom lives by it. She said she has never found anything that works this well. It cuts the healing time a lot.

  68. Angela says

    I do not have a problem with cold sores but this seems to be a highly advertised product so i am sure it works well.

  69. Michelle Spayde says

    I have not tried it as I’ve never had a cold sore, but a family member gets them. I like that this blocks the spread of the virus to healthy cells.

  70. says

    I personally have never needed to use Abreva, however I have bought it for my daughter on several occasions. It is the only thing that worked and worked fast to get rid of her cold sores and symptoms. Both my sisters use Abreva and it is their only brand they purchase. If I ever need it, I will use it….no other brand has worked for our family! Thanks Abreva….

  71. Shana f says

    my husbands carries some with him at all times just in case he gets one…has had them since he was a kid..works well for him

I will keep that in mind if I ever get a cold sore.
