    I am REALLY prone to getting cold sores - when I have a cold, when I'm in the sun, when my lips get too dry, when I'm stressed, when my hormones fluctuate - you name it, it gives me a cold sore.

    I've tried both pill and cream prescriptions, and unfortunately neither work for me. This stuff is the only treatment I've found that has any positive effect on treating my cold sores.

    I apply at the first sign of tingly/itchy lip, and that usually stops the cold sore from coming. During high-stress times or when I'm sick, I apply a thin layer every night as a preventive measure, let it dry fully, and then put a non-petroleum/non-peppermint lip balm on my lips to keep them moisturized overnight. This usually works to prevent a cold sore, but if it doesn't, I'm diligent about applying the ointment every hour to my cold sore - keep it clean, apply the ointment, keep it dry until it starts healing (sometimes within hours, sometimes it takes up to a day).

    I am miserable when I get cold sores - please keep making this!!!

    Let's be realistic... Anyone who has ever had a cold sore, knows it isn't going to be completely cleared up in 1 day. HOWEVER, this product drastically shortens the timeframe of the actual flare up. Without treatment, those little water blisters can sometimes go on for days... This product will stop them in 1 day... And then your skin is left dry, but flat, so you can hide with make-up. Keep rubbing this stuff on it, and it will continue to dry it up and the scab will flake off faster.

    The medicine is kind of like a gel, so just put on with you finger... Directions say not to use cotton swab, and that scared me at first, but you don't need it. I'm on day 3 and no longer noticeable... Plenty of med still in bottle... 1day doesn't mean you only get enough medicine for one day.

    I want to point out that at first tingle, I rub the Oragel Single Dose into the area... It's truly a single dose... Can't save anything for later. Between the two products, I'm super happy. Good luck!

          Comments about Releev 1-Day Cold Sore Symptom Treatment, .2 oz:

          I've used the precursor of Releev, going by the label of Viramedx for a couple of years. When it changed to Releev I continuing using it.

          It's very effective in treating cold sores. I wouldn't be without it on the shelf. Before these products I would have outbreaks about five times a year with a couple of weeks recovery. With them (Viramedx/Releev) I have one or two outbreaks a year with 2 day recovery.

          As for the price - I use less than one 2 oz bottle over a three year period. That's pretty cheap for something that works really well.

                    I haven't used this particular product, but I have used one with the same active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride (0.13%). And it works the balls. I only needed two treatments and it completely dried out my fever blister. I get fever blisters all the time especially when stressed. And it's tough to find something that works. Abreva and meds like that only work if you use at the tingle. I don't get the tingle, I usually go straight to a blister showing up. I am going to try this one since I can't find the other one I used.

                      Comments about Releev 1-Day Cold Sore Symptom Treatment, .2 oz:

                      I've been getting cold sores since puberty. I get them usually when my hormones are kicked up or down, I am run-down, when the weather is extreme or when something irritates my upper lip, (best example would be when I kiss my boyfriend when he has 5-o'clock shadow). Releev works best when you use it preemptively at times you know you are prone. If you start to feel a cold sore coming (tingly lip), it usually works to prevent it from developing. If you get a cold sore before you get a chance to treat it, this is still pretty effective at stopping it from getting worse, drying it out and what's best is that I have never gotten an unsightly scab or any bad side effect from this product. It's far & away the best cold sore treatment and worth the price!!! The bottle is tiny, but a little drop goes a long way and although it comes out brown, it dries clear.

                        This is the only product I have found that treats sores inside of the mouth. There is no numbing sensation like other oral gels, but it soothes the area immediately! I use this every time I have a sore on the inside of my mouth. It only takes one day to begin the healing process.

                            There is nothing more to add to it. It does not work for me. I've tried it more than once. Maybe if you'll use it right the way when you just get a symptoms it might work.

                              I have bought abreva in the past and no results. Plus I had to walk around public with a white smudge on lip from the Abreva.
                              With Releev I dont have to do that! Plus Releev works! Not the first day though. Im on my third day and my cold sore is almost gone! My cold sores usually last 2 to 3 weeks. I cant believe theres a product thats actually effecient. I think cold sore products go in the wrong direction when they create balms and chapsticks. Cold Sores thrive on moisture, thats what they live on! Releev dries out the cold therefore killing it!!!!!!! Im very happy!!! My lips are chapped but thats better than a stupid sore!!!!!!!!!! Thank You Releev!!!!!!
