Abreva Cream Fever Blister/Cold Sore Treatment, 10% Docosanol - 0.07oz


Availability: Usually ships in 1 business day


Abreva Cream is the only nonprescription cold sore medicine approved by the FDA to shorten healing time. While other products just soothe, Abreva works quickly by penetrating deep into the skin to the source of the spreading virus. Abreva comes in a tube or pump, and uses the same formula for each.

  • Healing cream for treating cold sores and fever blisters on the face or lips
  • Shortens the duration of tingling, pain, burning and itching symptoms
  • Delivers best results when treated at the first tingle
  • Penetrates deep into the skin to the source of the spreading virus
  • Contains 2 grams of cream
Abreva Cream Fever Blister/Cold Sore Treatment, 10% Docosanol - 0.07oz is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 609.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stick with it I see a lot of reviews from people who said it got worse day 1. I just used this (have done so a few times in the past year), the first application makes the blisters swell. As I continue to apply, it dries them up and by day 3 they scab and fall off. It might seem as if it is getting worse day 1, but for me, it is just the sign that it is working. Without abreva, the blisters often pop and things get much worse. Also, use a q-tip and apply on top of the blisters. Don't use dirty fingers and rub this all over the place. You want it to sit right on top of the blisters and it will work. Also drink lots of water. Good luck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pump So... the product itself is amazing but the pump tube container is the worst case of customer abuse ever. When they originally came out with this product it was a squeeze tube with a pin point opening so you could take out just a little bit at a time as thats all you really need to use at a time and at twenty dollars a tube you really don't want to waste this product but then suddenly they came out with this pump tube where I have to do battle to keep from pumping out this huge amount. It's preposterous! I was haaaappy with this product up until then and suddenly I find myself looking to my doctor for a alternative that is more effective.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I have obviously seen commercials for this product about how it heals cold sores sooo quickly. I dont get these hardly ever, so when I saw one starting I figured what the heck I'll try it. I put it twice in the evening as that's when I bought it, when I applied it there was just a very little, barely noticeable bump. When I woke up the next morning it had not only gotten huge and spread from front to back on my lip but the left half on my lip was extremely swollen, looked like someone punched me in the face. I used a couple more times between that day and the next and saw no difference. Did not work for me at all. Huge waste of money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps stop massive scarring! I love Abreva. I used to get sore after sore in the same area and it would leave ugly scabs that would scar up my face. Sometimes I'm unable to recognize any symptoms before a blister starts to form, but if I apply Abreva the moment I feel a blister coming on, it usually stops it from developing any further. I'm extremely thankful for this, because when the sores become really huge, they are very painful and look absolutely ridiculous, so much so that I will not go out in public, even if it means calling out of work. I highly recommend this cream (I like the squeeze tube better; easier to control how much product you want to use).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely effective! I've been using Abreva to treat cold sores for several years. I have never found a medication that works so well! I apply Abreva at the first tiny sign of a cold sore and within a few hours, it is gone. It actually disappears! This morning, for the first time in a long time, I woke up with a large cold sore on my lip. It was already blistering with a yellow appearance. I applied Abreva every 30 minutes and again, it is almost gone. (Even though the cold sore was much larger and advanced.) I should take pictures before and after applications. It's unbelievable how effective it is. I highly recommend Abreva to treat cold sores!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy the pump. If you don't put the cream on at the first feeling of tingling, I think the cream is of no use. Putting it on after there is a scab doesn't do any good. Putting it on five times a day is pretty hard to keep up with. This is an extremely expensive product for the little you get. I'd say to ask for a sample of acyclovir (Zovirax) from your physician before trying this. The pump isn't practical. When pressed, it squirts on your shirt or all over your finger. You can't just slowly press it for a small amount. You get way more than you need. Something needs to be done with this method. How about a spray with a "mist", rather than cream?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No the the Pump! To date, Abreva is my go to product for my cold sores. Unfortunately, the company made a big error with the pump. You cannot control the amount that comes out and you have no way of knowing when it is empty. Just when I needed it the most, I discovered the pump was empty! At least with the tube you can control the amount and you know exactly how much you have left so you can buy a replacement before you run out. Also, the pump has a very poor plastic cap design, it will not stay on the pump when it's in my purse or pocket, I had to carry it in a plastic bag. I will look for an alternate product before I would purchase the pump again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actualy works been plagued with chapped lip induced cold sores my whole life and only recently tried Abreva. from the very first moment of application I felt a difference and I simply must say that this is truly the miracle drug of the century... Bar None! After using this product many times, my normal cycle of blistering and then the awful and ugly healing mess has either never occurred or it's been reduced to being virtually unnoticeable. Regardless of cost, I will only be using Abreva from now on. WOW!... Something actually works! So I highly recommend this to anyone seeking serious help with their cold sore issues.
