Say NO To Cold Sores, Abreva Works! Enter to #Win $25 Amazon Gift Code

Kozzi-little-girl-saying-an-emphatic-no-441 X 294I hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas!  Can you believe it’s already here, before we know it we’ll be saying goodbye to 2012 and welcoming 2013.  I’m sure we’re all planning on welcoming the New Year in different ways.  I bet we all have something in common.  The last thing we want is a cold sore.  This time of year I tend to get cold sores, the weather and stress of the holidays really gets to me.

I remember last New Years I welcomed the New Year with a big, fat cold sore right in the middle of my lip.  It was horrible, not only did it hurt, but embarrassing too.  I remember my husband and I went to a party at my brothers house.  My poor husband, I love him dearly.  He gave me a little peck on the side of my lip, I could tell he didn’t want to touch my nasty cold sore, but he still tried to give me a midnight kiss.  You have to love a man like that.  Cold sores are not only nasty, but they’re contagions too.

I’ve had cold sores since I can remember.  A cold sore is a blister that forms on or around the lip area.  They are caused by the HSV-1.  HSV-1 is easy to spread, too bad they’re not easy to get rid of without a good medication.

Did you know that most people don’t know when they came in contact with the HSV-1 virus?  Most people that suffer from cold sores normally come in contact with it in early childhood.  Which would explain why I’ve had cold sores off and on my whole life.

Up to 90% of adults have been infected by the cold sore virus.  However not everyone gets the cold sore outbreaks, only about 20% to 40% will experience cold sores.

Did you know about 80 million Americans suffer from cold sores?  When one suffers from a cold sore outbreak, the virus wakes up and infest the skin cells, normally around your lips, and eventually becomes visible.  They can get huge, nasty, and are contagious.

So what are some things that trigger cold sores?  I think the biggest one for me is STRESS.  Needless to say I tend to stress out a lot, especially this time of year.  The holidays can be stressful, not to mention it’s perfect weather for cold sores.  There’s several other things that can trigger a cold sore such as:

  • The winter weather (cold, dry air) can dry your lips out.
  • Ultraviolet rays can damage your skin
  • Hormonal changes
  • Trauma to your mouth.
  • When you get sick or rundown

I’ve tried so many different things to help with cold sores.  Last year when I had my break out on New Years was the first time I tried Abreva.  If you suffer from cold sores, and have not tried Abreva I recommend getting some.  It does what it says it will.  If used right nobody but you will know you’re getting a cold sore.  I say that because if you get them often you learn what the beginning stages of a cold sore feel like, and you’re able to apply Abreva before it’s noticeable.

I’ve come to learn how it feels when a cold sore is coming on, you know before it gets all nasty looking.  Right before a cold sore starts to get really bad, the area itches, and hurts a little.  I don’t know how to explain it, but its a distinct feeling.  The second I think I might be getting a cold sore, I use Abreva.

I’ve used plenty of other medicine to help with cold sores.  Some of them help with the painful feeling, but I have honestly never noticed them shortening the healing time.  Before I started using Abreva, even if I tried to use the medicine right when I felt the cold sore coming, the cold sore would still get big, nasty, and painful.

Abreva is the only over-the-counter medication that is approved by the FDA that is proven to shorten healing time and duration of cold sore symptoms.  It’s also the number on pharmacist recommended over-the-counter cold sore treatment. Abreva shortens the healing time of cold sores much like a prescription medication would, but without having to visit the Dr.  It’s magic in a tube, you’ll always find it in my medicine cabinet.

Using Abreva is easy all you have to do is:

  • Apply directly to your cold sore, right when you notice signs.  When feel a cold sore coming on I know by the itchy bump on my lip, sometimes it has somewhat of a tingling pain feeling.  Abreva is recommended for adults and children over the age of 12.  It should be used exactly as directed:
  • Apply five times a day, until your cold sore is healed, for no more than 10 days.
  • Be sure to remove cosmetics before applying Abreva.  I try to stay clear of using lipstick while using Abreva, but you can apply cosmetics such as lipstick over Abreva.
  • Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after treating your cold sore.  You don’t want to share a cold sore with others.
  • To avoid spreading the infections, always use something like a cotton swab to apply cosmetics to an unhealed cold sore, or just avoid using them.  I personally don’t like putting anything over it, I know they say you can but I hate the way it feels.

Cold sores plain SUCK!  I love my husband, and he’s seen me at my worst, there’s nothing worse than him not wanting to give me a kiss because of a nasty cold sore. I honestly don’t blame him, and the last thing I want to do is share it with him.

Oh, here’s a story about a cold sore.  I know, I always have something to share, this isn’t’ funny like they normally are.  This story actually really did a number of my self confidence.

I showed up at work with a cold sore on my lip a while back.  My boss looked at me, with this look that made me want to crawl in a whole.  I still remember, it was a look of disgust, and told me, “Jenn I think you should come home until that thing on your lip is gone.  I don’t know what the customers will think.”

WOW, now tell me that didn’t so a number on my confidence, and make me want to hide from the world.  It was in our morning meeting, in front of everyone.  I truly didn’t want to go back to work.  I was so hurt at my boss.  I know she wasn’t trying to hurt my feelings, but she did probably more than she’ll ever know.

Needless to say, COLD SORES SUCK!  They are embarrassing, and can really do a number on ones confidence.

If you suffer from cold sores, I have some good news.  Right now you can try Abreva risk free.  Next time you have a cold sore, pick up some Abreva.  If you’re not completely satisfied with Abreva for ANY reason, save your receipt, the unused product, and call Abreva at 1-877-709-3539.  Abreva will give you your money back, if you’re not happy.

I personally use, and believe in Abreva.  It’s helped me a lot, and I always have a tube in my medicine cabinet.  It’s worked great for me, and I recommend giving it a try.  If you suffer from cold sores, and have not tried Abreva what do you have to loose?  It’s a win-win situation.  Either you’ll be like me, and become a believe in Abreva, or you’ll get your money back.  Either way if you suffer from cold sores, in my opinion it’s definitely worth trying.

Have you used Abreva to help fight your cold sores?  If you’ve used Abreva, did it work for you.  Want to learn more, visit the Abreva Website.

    Does it have L-Lysine in it? As far as I am aware this is one of the most preventive measures any sufferer from cold sores can take. Abreva does however look very interesting and I shall do some more research on it.. Thanks for the great article.

  • Maddie K.

    I actually have a cold sore in the corner of my mouth right now. It is so annoying and painful. It cracks and splits and is so slow to heal because of it’s location. I don’t get them often usually once a year or less but when I do it takes forever for one to go away. I have never tried Abreva but would love to. Thanks for sharing this important information for us cold sore sufferers~!
