The Cold Sore That Almost Ruined EverythingDec 02nd


I’m excited to share with you a post today that’s all about staying confident even when you’re battling a cold sore.  If you suffer from cold sores like I do, you know it isn’t easy to feel confident when you get one.  With the first sign of a cold sore coming on I reach for Abreva® cream to get rid of it fast. The median healing time is 4.1 days, but you could heal it in as few as 2.5 days  when used at the first sign. Then I follow the following simple tips to help keep my confidence high until Abreva® cream works its healing “magic”!
So, flashback to nine years ago. I was a college student, preparing for finals, preparing for the holidays, and preparing for my wedding. We got married on December 17th, 2005. The months leading up to that date were just crazy. Weddings are stressful events for anyone, but when you’re a college student that stress multiplies.

The weekend before Thanksgiving I started getting sick, and as lousy as it was to feel cruddy I suffered the most from a cold sore. I think it was the stress plus a fever that brought that miserable thing out. Right on the inside of my top lip, that miserable beast reminded me of its existence any time I talked, ate, or breathed.

I was freaked out that it would ruin my wedding. I didn’t want our first kiss as man and wife to be executed in pain.

wedding

The word “execute” is probably not quite right when talking about a kiss, is it? Well, that’s the kind of word that comes to mind when you have to kiss through a cold sore.

Yuck.

There was also a Thanksgiving feast right around the corner. Thanksgiving is probably the absolute worst time of the year to have a cold sore. You can’t glut yourself on stuffing and gravy with an open wound on your mouth.

The good news is the cold sore didn’t ruin my feast or my first married kiss. I knocked that bad boy out with some Abreva® cream. Thank God for Abreva® cream. I found this magical cream tucked away in an aisle at the drugstore. I was so excited to find something for my cold sore that I didn’t even get distracted by the makeup aisle. That’s a big deal, folks.

Anyways, with the holidays right around the corner folks are starting to get sick. I’ve already had my three-week bout with bronchitis, so I’m hoping that was enough of a sacrifice to the flu gods. You might find yourself waking up to a beast on the inside or outside of your mouth. It will threaten to ruin everything from your feast to your Christmas sweater. This is when it would be a good time to grab some Abreva® cream.

You could knock out your cold sore in 2.5 days*. Only  Abreva® cream can do it, when you treat at the first sign**. Try Abreva® cream during your next cold sore!  Click here to learn more about Abreva® cream.

    If I can get Abreva on it when it just starts to turn a tad red and tingly I can be over it very quickly. So to help with my confidence I take Abreva in my purse. Otherwise, if I wait even 5 hours it’s a 7 day ordeal. I like your post, I’m glad I’m not the only one dealing with this. I don’t see too many other people having or talking about it.

    I have to keep lip balm on when it is cold and/or windy otherwise I am sure to get a cold sore. When I get one, I try not to wear red or pink, those colors seem to make my lip look worse by bringing out the redness! No amount of concealer or lip gloss works to hide it for me. Treating them as quickly as possible is my best bet!

    Stress brings on my cold sores so as soon as I start to feel the slightest tingling sensation I bring out the Abreva. If I catch it soon enough it sometimes doesn’t even erupt but it’s always a mild eruption compared to the ones I got before I found Abreva.
    As far as confidence goes, I just pretend the cold sore isn’t there. No one else seems to notice it.
