Get Rid of Cold Sores Fast

The cooler weather is slowing sneaking upon us.  It can bring on a slew of unwelcomed changes to our mood and skin health, including seasonal stress, dry/chapped lips and sometimes even cold sores.

Cold sore sufferers know that dreadful moment when an outbreak is coming: anxiety sets in and they start thinking of ways to skip out on plans. For the 1 in 4 people who experience recurring cold sores, fall/winter season is prime time for visible flare-ups, emotional distress and last-minute cancellations. Instead of bailing on the fun, sufferers can significantly shorten their healing time and the duration of symptoms with Abreva – the only over-the-counter, FDA-approved cold sore medication that can nearly cut normal healing time in half (2.5 days with Abreva vs. a median of 4.1 days without). Users can rest easy with this easily accessible, purse-friendly treatment, and resume their brunch dates and apple-picking outings in peace.


  • More than half (59%) of cold sore sufferers do not recognize lip “tingling” as the first sign of an impending outbreak
  • By immediately treating an outbreak with Abreva at the first sign of lip tingling, cold sores can heal in as little as 2.5 days*
