Abreva is clinically proven to shorten cold sore healing time to as little as 4.1 days*. It contains 10% docosanol — an ingredient that speeds healing and helps protect healthy cells against the cold sore infection. Abreva cold sore treatment penetrates deep to the root of your cold sore to help speed healing.

The medicine goes deep into the skin to strengthen the cell membranes surrounding your healthy skin cells. It actually turns these cells into barriers that block the ability of the virus to get inside your cell — blocking the virus from entering healthy cells.
