I’m excited to share with you a post today that’s all about staying confident even when you’re battling a cold sore. Some of my closest friends are cold sore sufferers and I know the toll they take on their confidence. That’s why they turn to Abreva® at the very first sign of their cold sore to heal it fast! Read below to discover simple ways you can keep your confidence high.

On one hand, I am loving winter season because I have to say that for the first time in years, we are having a great ski season in California.  It is fantastic to ski in our record number of powdered inches, but I am always out of my workout rhythm during the winter months

On the other hand, I do find it a very stressful time as there is something about the winter months that makes it challenging to balance my work and family responsibilities or should I add, family obligations.

There is something about winter that just makes everything harder.   This year, the stress brought me my very first cold sore.  This is particularly bad for me because I speak and give presentations as part of how I make my living and I just don’t feel like myself. Then there is that few extra pounds on my body coupled with a very unattractive cold sore on my lip.

What’s a girl to do?

I know what I have to do about the pounds on my body, but the cold sore?  I called my best friend, Camille, in New York, as she always has the perfect remedy – for everything.

Camille said, “Get Abreva® – period.”  So, I did.

Off to the drug store I went, and bought the Abreva® Cream and then I follow the following simple tips to help keep my confidence high!

1)     Cover your cold sore with cosmetics such as lipstick, maybe applied over Abreva® Cream.

2)     Exercise, exercise, exercise (cold sores can be related to stress so make sure you take a walk, go for a run, do yoga, get to the gym or do some home based exercises);

3)     Breathe fresh air; and/or

4)     Hang out with a friend for girls’ night and laugh up a storm.

  1. I have used Abreva when I had a cold sore that was awful and the day before a big presentation, I put it on my cold sore and it decreased and faded within one day. I felt more confident the next day at my presentation!

  2. I've never used it but my sister gets cold sores all the time. I will tell her about Abreva next time I talk to her and I hope it can help put an end to her days of misery!

  3. Fortunately, it's been years since my last cold sore. However, I appreciate knowing about Abreva, because I know that I could get a cold sore again any time, and if I do, now I know how to treat it.

  4. I never got cold sores until my kids were in college! So much for parenting getting easier as they age! Anyway, I tried various products, washes, even those nasty prescription pills. Abreva works like a charm. When I get that telltale tingling feeling in my lip, I grab my Abreva and start using it. Usually, the sore never even breaks open. It's a life changer!!

  5. My husband used to be very self conscious about cold sores. He gets them a lot when he's been out in the cold snowboarding, but now he uses abreva at the first sign of one and they typically disappear immediately. It's a lot better than forcing himself to cover his mouth with a scarf, which is usually hot and itchy.

  6. My wife is a victim on the old stress related cold sore. When she was attending nursing school everyone knew when she had an exam in the near future. Maybe if Abreva was available back then we would have never known her class schedule. She does use Abreva these days but most of her cold sores are brought on by the sun, like when we are on vacation. I'm guessing its not because of the stress of lying poolside!

  7. Cold sores are certainly related to stress. Earlier this year I experienced it first hand. I get cold sores often because I tend to hold stress inside and that causes me problems. I knew a cold sore was coming on because I could feel the tingle on my lip where they most often pop up. I got out the Abreva and started to treat it and I actually ended up with three sores before they all healed. But Abreva made them go away much faster.
