Best results are seen when Abreva
Cream is used early in a cold sore episode. So don’t ignore the tingle. Act on it fast before your cold sore has reached the stage of forming an ulcer or even a crust.
Do not peel the scab as you could damage the new, delicate skin underneath. Instead, let the scab fall off naturally.
Once the scab has formed, your cold sore is almost completely healed. Keep applying Abreva Cream for 10 days or until the scab has fallen off, whichever comes first.
