My husband and I have been using Abreva for at least a year and a half. I have both types of herpes and It works great for both. I'm not sure its intended for use for genital herpes but it really does a good job. If I feel anything I just put it on there and often I do not get an outbreak. Same for my husband. I'm not sure if the oral herpes is just a more aggressive virus or not but if I do get an outbreak when I have used Abreva it's usually oral. and yes as a person mentioned previously the outbreak can happen on the side of where I had put the Abreva but I don't blame Abreva. It seems to me to be the rascally virus, not Abreva. So sometimes I put it on a larger area just to be sure. I do find this site helpful thanks to all who shared their experience. ~X

Chap Stick makes a lip balm containing petroleum ingredients and is said to work just as well or better than Abreva.  Also Abreva is very expensive, it sells for about $16 for 4 oz. ~X

Hi! I am on my 3rd tube of Abreva! I Love it! Another thing that it will do, I have genital herpes also, when I start feeling a break out coming, I put Abreva on it and guess what? NO OUTBREAK! It is great. I think that the people that say that it doesn't work are maybe not putting it on enough. I have a small cold sore now. I know that it is a lot better than it would have been without it. ~X

I believe that Abreva helps me. It definitely stops the stinging/tingling a little sooner, I am not sure that it promotes healing. I just know that within 3 hours of applying it to an oral or genital lesion, the area begins to feel better. I do this with my OBGYN's blessing, she has just told me not to use it internally. I do not know if it is the placebo effect or it really helps me, but it appears to really help me. For that reason, I will continue using it. ~X

Thanks for your site and the information.  I've been struggling with accepting myself with genital herpes for a long time, going on 10 years now.  Your outlook is amazing and inspiring. Also, wanted to give a "thumbs up" to Abreva!  Totally recommend it.  For a year or so after I was diagnosed I was on Famvir.  I switched to daily Valtrex sometime later.  Even after switching doses over the course of about 6 years from 500 mg to 1 gram, and back again, I still had outbreaks at least 4 times a year.  I went off daily Valtrex and took 500 mg every 2-3 days just in case, but still had 3-4 outbreaks a year.  I finally broke down one morning after waking up to another painful outbreak and bought a tube of Abreva.  With Valtrex and Abreva, my outbreak was shortened and a lot less painful.  Now, whenever I have a tingle, twinge, or itch, I dab some Abreva.   I haven't had an outbreak for almost a year.  Thanks again for your support! Please feel free to post my comments under the Abreva product review. ~X
