Abreva is not actually indicated for the treatment of genital herpes.

Abreva (docosanol topical) is an antiviral medication used to treat cold sore infections caused by the herpes simplex virus. Docosanol shortens the healing time and the length of time symptoms are present.

Docosanol topical is used to treat cold sores on the face and lips.
