Abreva (docosanol) is a non-prescription cold sore medication. It is the only non-prescription cold sore treatment approved to shorten the healing time and the duration of cold sore symptoms.
# The medication is to be used directly on the cold sore; it is not to be taken internally or to be used inside the mouth or nose.
# Abreva works best if you start using it at the first signs of a cold sore (tingling, redness, or a bump). You should apply it five times a day.
Foe more info please talk to a doc/pharmacist, take care!
