THE TRUTH ABOUT COLD SORE REMEDIES
When you have a cold sore, you want to act on it quickly. You may end up trying remedies that friends, family or health websites recommend but you may find that these aren’t clinically proven.
Some remedies may offer only temporary symptom relief, while others may have the potential to make the cold sore worse. With lots of anecdotal evidence out there, let’s separate the medicines from the myths.
Although these remedies may help with temporary symptom relief, or to minimize bacterial infection, they are not clinically proven to heal cold sores like Abreva Cream is. In clinical testing, Abreva has been proven to reduce healing time of cold sores when used at the first sign of a cold sore.
If you have any questions regarding cold sore treatments and remedies, your healthcare professional is the best person to offer advice.
