Tips to use Abreva Cold Sore Treatment Cream
- Don't wait: Apply Abreva Cream at the first sign of a tingle, bump, or itch for the best results. Don’t wait until a blister or scab forms.
- Keep it clean: Remove any cosmetics before applying Abreva Cream. Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after treating your cold sore so the virus doesn’t spread to other parts of your body.
- Use makeup carefully: You can apply cosmetics, like lipstick, over Abreva Cream after it has been rubbed in completely. Always use a separate makeup applicator, like a cotton swab, to avoid spreading the virus.
- Follow the label or ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Cold sores are contagious. Don’t share your Abreva tube with anybody else.
