    Only Thing That Works For Me

    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 couldn't believe how well this product works. I have had really bad cold sores about 2 to 3 times a year for most of my life. They would usually take a week to resolve cosmetically. I've tried over the counter and prescription oral and topical meds. Releev is the most effective product I've ever used. The healing that would normally occur in 3 days took about 24 hours. Amazing. I never write reviews. But this product is worth supporting!

      It helps - though not in one day.

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

        This, in combination with about 4 other things, does help to reduce the duration of the dreaded cold sore. To call it a one-day treatment is a stretch, unless they mean you use it for one day and it's superfluous after that? I use it along with cold packs, L-Lysine, and two things I buy in France, Compeed cold sore patches (like little mini bandaids, reduce spreading plus keeps it from drying out) and Urogel treatment, similar effect to Compeed but like a liquid bandaid. I wish they had the last two in the US. But Releev is also quite helpful, much more than the creams and Valtrex, and I always keep it on hand.

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

          since childhood, i've suffered cold sores, and the humiliation and pain thereof. if you take lysine tablets daily, you can build a slight resistance (though my dermatologist says that isn't even medically proven), but if you're in a stressy/sunny/blistery spot and feel one coming on, this stuff can actually even hold one off. if you have a blister already, applying this (many times a day) will greatly squelch its persistence. it's not perfect, it's a weird color, it's very runny, it's spendy - but it actually works...WAY better than abreva, which prior to releev, is the only thing i'd found that helped at all. give this a go.

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

          I have suffered from cold sores my whole life & have tried everything, this stuff by far works the best than anything that I've tried! For my last outbreak a few days ago I applied this within an hour of noticing symptoms & noticed improvement within mintutes, it took away the redness,tingling & burning, the only thing that remained was a small bump that lasted a few days but wasn't noticable. I only applied the product for 2 days, I hope it works this well for every outbreak! That is why I only gave it 4 stars because I've only used it once so my only concern would be that it might not work that well every time or for severe outbreaks.

          My daughter told me about Releev a few years ago. We both get cold sores. Now I don't go anywhere without it. It's in my pocket right now. If I feel an itch on my lip I put it right away and can usually keep it down to no sore or a small one.If you catch it right away you will have success. Better than other creams I have tried. It's easy to apply. Just rub a small drop on. I won't run off, rubs right in and you can use lipstick or lip balm right over it.
          A neighbor of mine tried it and he is now hooked too. Thank you for making this product. Please don't take it off the shelf.

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

            I started get cold sores occasionally about eight years ago thanks to my ex. When I first started getting them I tried Abreva and Herpecin and a few other over the counter things that didn't work. After doing research online I read about Releev and it worked great for me. I just bought a new bottle the other day because my old one had expired and new package had a Releev lip balm included that was very nice.
            My outbreaks are not very big, generally the size of a dime to a nickel, and they have only been on the skin surrounding my lower lip. I don't know how it might work for people with larger outbreaks or one directly on the lips but I would definitely recommend trying it. It's also nice that it's a liquid and not a cream so it dries fairly clear. If I feel a core sore coming on and use it right away it will even stop the outbreak from happening most times.
