Ever Have One of THOSE Days? {$100 VISA Gift Card Giveaway!}


Ever have one of those days? You wake up feeling pretty awesome. The you go take a visit to the mirror. All of a sudden a great day becomes more of a freak show. You have a little visitor on the edge of your mouth. It starts to burn & then aches something awful. Not fun. Who wants their beautiful face to be taken over by an unsightly beast? No one I know. Let’s debunk some myths here guys. That’s right, let’s get to the bottom of…..cold sores.

Hey, stuff happens sometimes when we least expect it. The great news is…you can Fight with Medicine, not Myth!   Take a tiny tube of Abreva® with you when you travel. Tuck some in your makeup bag and medicine cabinet.


There’s quicker fixes then swabbing your face with vanilla extract, clinging to freezing ice cubes, and putting cold milk compresses on the sore spot. You can treat yourself with true medicine.

We’ve all heard those medicine wives’ tales, most of which we WANT to believe are true.

When you find yourself using iced batteries to help your cold sores, it’s time you re-evaluate your plan of action, and fight it with a reliable option like Abreva®. There is a real, more genuine, solution to your medical concern. Thank goodness for modern science! When we fall victim to this kind of thing all we want are quick and painless solutions, right?! Did you know:  Abreva® is the only FDA approved OTC medicine to shorten the healing time of your cold sore.

When used at the first sign, Abreva® can heal a cold sore in as few as 2 ½ days.* Abreva® is available without a prescription in the cough/cold aisle at all major Drug, Mass, and Grocery retailers. They try to make it as easy as possible for folks who suffer from this condition.

*Median Healing Time 4.1 days. 25% of users healed in 2.5 days.

  1. I seem to be the one in our family that gets them every single year and it is so painful and embarrassing!

  2. I hardly ever get cold sores, thank goodness. I do have friends that do and they do use Abreva when they get them and it is like magic! Poof, gone!

  3. When I get an occasional cold sore,if I put ice on it right away it does seem to help. I also try to take lysine internally and externally. But I definitely want to get Albreva and give it a try. Thanks for the info! Have an amazing day!

  4. My brother gets cold sores regularly, and I usually get about 4 a year. My sister in law, however, gets at least 1 a month.

  5. We don’t get cold sores in the winter. Usually we just deal with chapped lips from the cold! Having a good lip balm really helps.
