Customer Questions & Answers:

What does it look like?

Abreva cream comes in a convenient 2.0-gram tube so that you can easily carry it with you and apply as directed. Abreva cream is a smooth, white cream that has no smell or taste. It dries clear so that it can be your secret defense against cold sores

How is it packaged?

Abreva cream comes in a tube or pump that you can easily carry with you so at the first sign of a cold sore, you can start fighting. Abreva cream is a smooth, white cream that dries clear. It won’t sting or burn and it has no smell or taste. It can be your strongest defense and secret weapon against cold sores

How is Abreva cream different from other cold sore products?

Abreva cream is the only non-prescription cold sore medication approved by the FDA to shorten healing time and the duration of symptoms. Other non-prescription treatments like Orajel and Carmex only provide temporary relief from the symptoms of a cold sore. Abrevacream contains a unique, active ingredient that, when used at the first sign of a cold sore, helps to protect healthy cells from the cold sore infection

How long will a tube of Abreva cream last for the average cold sore sufferer? How many applications can I expect to get out of one 2.0-gram tube of Abreva cream?

It is important to apply Abreva cream according to the package directions and recommended dosage (avoid trying to “stretch” the product to last for an extra episode). Our surveys indicate that a tube of Abreva cream will last the average cold sore sufferer through 2-3 episodes (a year’s supply for the average sufferer). However, because the duration of cold sores varies among different individuals, your results may vary

When should I use Abreva cream?

For best results, start fighting with Abreva cream the moment you feel a cold sore coming on. Learn what triggers your cold sore and how to recognize the signs of a tingle, redness, bump or itch so you can start to fight as soon as you feel it. Abreva cream should be used five times a day for up to 10 days.Go hereto learn more about how to use Abreva cream

If I feel a tingle, but the cold sore hasn’t erupted yet, can I use this?

Yes. Begin using Abreva cream at the first sign of a cold sore for best results. Based on laboratory studies, Abreva cream penetrates deep and starts to work immediately to block the cold sore virus

Will this help if I start to apply it after the blister has developed?

Best results are seen when Abreva cream is used early in a cold sore episode. Once your cold sore has reached the stage of forming an ulcer or even a crust, then it may not be as effective in shortening healing time

Will the scab on my cold sore interfere with the absorption of the product? Can I peel the scabs on my cold sore?

Once the scab has formed, your cold sore is nearing its stage of complete healing. Keep applying the product for the 10 days, or until the scab has fallen off, whichever is the earliest. We do not recommend peeling the scab. You could damage the new, delicate skin underneath. Let the scab fall off naturally

What if I miss a dose?

Apply a dose as soon as you remember and then reapply the next dose on schedule

How do I use Abreva cream?

Apply five times a day until healed for up to 10 days. You can apply with a cotton swab or with your finger, but do wash hands before and after applying the cream. Use an ample amount to completely cover the sore and the area around the sore for best results. Per package directions, rub in gently, but completely. Abreva cream dries clear once rubbed in

How should I apply this? Should I use my fingertip or a cotton swab? How much should I apply each time?

You may use your fingertip or a cotton swab. Apply enough to completely cover your cold sore and follow the directions on the package. If you use your finger to apply, make sure to wash your hands before and after applying Abreva cream

Do I need to apply this product around the clock or only during waking hours? How far apart should the applications be spaced?

Apply five times a day during waking hours — approximately every 3-4 hours

How often can I reapply?

Abrevacream should be applied five times/day, until healed. Apply Abrevacream after you wash your face

Can it be used to treat genital herpes, canker sores or shingles? Can I use this on the cracks that form in the corners of my mouth?

No. Abreva cream is indicated only for the treatment of cold sores caused by Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1

How thin or thick of a coating should I apply?

Use an ample amount to completely cover your cold sore and the area around your cold sore for best results. Per package directions, rub in gently, but completely

Who can use it? Is it safe?

Abreva cream can be used by adults and children over 12 years old. Abrevacream has a well-established safety profile. Abreva cream should be used five times a day for up to 10 days. And because cold sores are contagious, you won’t want to share your tube of Abreva cream with others. Doing so may spread the infection

Can I use longer than 10 days?

No. It is not recommended for use longer than 10 days. Also, it could be the sign of a more serious infection, so you should contact your health care professional for advice

Why should I call my doctor if my cold sore has not healed in 10 days?

You should contact your doctor if your cold sore has not healed within 10 days while using Abreva cream. If your cold sore has not healed after this length of time, then getting the doctor to look at it will ensure that you receive an updated diagnosis and possibly additional treatment

Can I apply cosmetics on top of it?

Yes. Cosmetics, such as lipstick, may be applied over Abreva cream. However, use a separate applicator, like a cotton swab, to apply cosmetics or sunscreen over an unhealed cold sore to avoid spreading the infection. For best results, remove any cosmetics prior to applying/reapplying Abreva

Can I use it in conjunction with other topical products (i.e., Carmex, Blistex, etc.)?

We have not studied the use of Abrevacream with other topical cold sore products and do not know whether using lip balms or ointments will interfere with Abreva cream’s effectiveness

Can I use it if I am pregnant or breast-feeding?

Testing has not been conducted with Abreva cream on pregnant or breast-feeding women. Consult your physician

Your label warning says to get medical help if the product is swallowed. What happens if I lick my lips and swallow some of the cream? Will this harm me?

This statement is precautionary in the event that someone swallows a large amount of the tube contents. The amount ingested by licking the affected area will be minimal and should not give cause for concern. If in doubt, always ask your physician’s advice

What can I expect to happen if I get some Abrevacream on the skin around the sore?

Abrevacream is safe to apply on both normal skin and cold sores. In fact, applying Abreva cream both on and around the sore is good as it will ensure both the obvious cold sore and areas still developing are adequately treated

Why can’t I apply this inside my mouth or nose?

Mucous membranes inside the mouth and nose are very sensitive and you could experience some irritation of the membranes. If your cold sore spreads upward to involve the outside of the nostrils, then Abreva cream can be safely applied. It is not recommended that you insert Abreva cream inside the nose

What happens if I actually get some in my mouth?

Small amounts that get just inside the lip/mouth junction by the cold sore should not be a problem. However, if you accidentally place a large amount of cream into your mouth, then remove the cream, rinse out your mouth with water and contact your health professional

Warnings:

  • For external use only
  • Do not use if you are allergic to any ingredient in this product
  • When using this product: apply only to affected areas
  • Do not use in or near the eyes
  • Avoid applying directly inside your mouth
