    Pros: Reduces symptoms noticeably.  White cream also has makeup effect of disguising the sore somewhat.
    Cons: May cause symptoms to re-occur at a different location or more frequently.

    Summary: The first time I tried Abreva, I was really impressed.  Even though the sore was well underway by the time I first applied, it seemed to hasten the healing.  I figured it would really work great if I applied when symptoms first appeared.  ... read more
