AWESOME $25 Amazon Gift CODE from @Abreva

The winner is Elena and an email has been sent to her!  Congratualations Elena and thanks to everyone who participated!

Even though it's likely that 90% of adults have been infected by the cold sore virus, not everyone gets  outbreaks.  Actually, only 20%-40% of people will experience cold sores - And I'm one of them.

I go through cycles; sometimes I won't get an outbreak for a blissful few months and then they start coming monthly for a while.   And I'm far from alone, about eighty million Americans suffer from cold sores.

They look awful but it's not really about that because they are very painful, can spread beyond your lips (and to other people).  For me,  I start with one and very soon I have it on the other lip and the skin around my mouth.  According to the National Institute of Health cold sores are contagious in all stages but  are most contagious at the 'weeping' stage when the blisters break.  Since you can't cure them the best you can do is shorten the duration of the outbreak.

For most of my adult life there wasn't much help for cold sores. I tried a lot of unsuccessful over the counter products and when a prescription only med came out, I tried that.  It does work but it's expensive and you have to begin using to during the prodrome (tingling) phase.  That means once the tingling starts I have to get to a doctor, like yesterday... And that just never works because getting an immediate  appointment with the doctor (especially during cold and flu season) is near impossible.

Now I have another option: Abreva®. It's the only over-the-counter medication approved by the FDA that is proven to shorten healing time of a cold sore. Abreva®  penetrates deep to the root of your cold sore to heal it fast and helps block the spread of the virus to healthy cells. It speeds healing like a prescription but without one.  Win/win pretty much....

Since  Abreva® is widely available in drugstores (it's the number one pharmacist recommended over-the-counter cold sore treatment) it's easy to start the healing process quickly and since it doesn't require a doctor's appointment there's no problem with treating your cold sore during the important first stages.  And you can try Abreva® risk free. If you aren't completely satisfied with Abreva® for any reason, save your receipt and remaining product, and call 1-877-709-3539 to get your money back.  But there's more....
