I occasionally get cold sores when I'm traveling for work, which is at least once a month. I was on dentist.net to buy travel size toothpaste and mouthwash and noticed the abreva was on sale. I decided to pick up one along with cankermelts. The cankermelts were weird, but I like the abreva. It seemed to put a protective layer over the sore without stingy. It also helped with redness which was nice.
