Use Abreva to act on your cold sore symptoms.

Some helpful tips

Keep it clean

Remove any cosmetics before applying Abreva Cream. Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after treating your cold sore so the virus doesn’t spread to other parts of your body.

Don't share

Cold sores are contagious. Don’t share your Abreva tube or pump with anybody else. Learn how not to spread the cold sore virus.

Use makeup carefully

You can apply cosmetics, like lipstick, over Abreva Cream after it has been rubbed in completely. Always use a separate makeup applicator, like a cotton swab, to avoid spreading the virus.
