If your holidays are anything like mine, then you are in the midst of non-stop parties, dinners, gift exchanges and luncheons right now.
Lots of fun, isn’t it?
I love the holiday season; the decorating, the family visiting from out of town, the eggnog – I love just about everything, except the cooking of course.
Oh, and the cold sores and fever blisters. Those aren’t much fun period, but they can downright ruin a holiday event!
I have suffered from cold sores off and on ever since I was a preteen, and my daughter has had one once or twice too. I seem to always get one when I have a serious sickness that induces a fever, or have a bad cold that leaves me with a runny nose for days at a time. Ugh!
As if being sick and feeling like garbage isn’t bad enough in the cold winter weather, mother nature adds insult to injury by throwing a nasty cold sore into the mix! I always feel so embarrassed going to events when I have a cold sore, and have actually skipped a few to avoid the embarrassment. Not only are cold sores embarrassing, but they hurt.
I had never tried Abreva cold sore treatment until about two years ago when my now-brother in law told me that is what he used to get rid of cold sores quickly.
If you are familiar with cold sores, then you probably also get that sensitive, tingly feeling right before one pops up. He told me that as soon as you start feeling that a cold sore is coming on, to start applying the Abreva cold sore treatment right to the cold sore and to reapply it about five times a day until your cold sore is gone (the maximum recommended usage is for 10 days).
Now, it’s not an immediate cure for my cold sores, but the Abreva really does help them go away faster and they don’t ache as much as they did when I didn’t treat them with Abreva. Now, that’s probably because Abreva cold sore treatment is actually approved by the FDA as the only over the counter medication that is proven to shorten the healing time of a cold sore, but to also reduce the duration of cold sore symptoms. I didn’t realize when I began using Abreva that it is actually the number one pharmacist-recommended over the counter cold sore medication – but I can certainly understand why now!
Do you suffer from cold sores? If so, I’d love to hear how Abreva core sore treatment has helped you! If you haven’t used Abreva yet, I’d like to encourage you to check it out if your current cold sore treatment isn’t cutting it!
