Like most people, I live a very busy life with work, family and children. “Stress” is my middle name sometimes, and when I feel a cold sore coming on—you know the feeling, that annoying tingling on the lip! This is the dreaded start to a cold sore; this is the last thing I need when I am giving a presentation to a roomful of people—a total downer. The fact is cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1). Sadly, once you have the virus it never leaves your body. Over 67% of the world population under age 50 has HSV-1(source). Being someone who loves to know the facts, it’s important to combat a cold sore with the best possible solution—that’s where Abreva® comes in.
Hey, let’s face it—all people have stress in one form or another. Stress is a huge factor in bringing about a cold sore, so I always take quick action and use Abreva®. Only Abreva® is FDA approved to shorten the healing time of your cold sore. Most other products only provide temporary relief of cold sore symptoms.
Why would anyone want to have a cold sore on their lip longer than you have to? When used at the very first sign of tingling on your lip, Abreva® can heal a cold sore in 2 ½ days*.
Not only are there so many myths running around the Internet, one can get carried away with so many halve truths and suffer longer than they need to—does anyone really want to do that? The reality is that everyone should know what the cold sore triggers are: stress, fatigue, cold weather, excessive sunlight, hormonal changes, and dental trauma to name a few. Keep in mind that not everyone gets the same triggers. Many myths exist as well. Knowing the facts on cold sores helps to stay ahead of the game, knowledge is always power! My favorite myth is that the cold sore cannot spread beyond the lip area…hello!!! The fact is that it can spread to other areas. By keeping Abreva® at your disposal, you are in control to take action to shorten the duration of a cold sore and the impact it can have on your daily life. Compare Abreva® to the competition, you will discover what I already know: Abreva® works!
Stop hiding and start living again! Life is complicated enough, letting a cold sore ruin your life and your appearance shouldn’t be one of them.
Abreva is available without a prescription in the cough/cold aisle at all major Drug, Mass and Grocery retailers.
*Median Healing Time 4.1 days. 25% of users healed in 2.5 days.
