Rated 4 out of 5★ by Inkwhelp Worked to shorten duration I did not catch the cold sore when it was a tingle and by the time I noticed it there were three small blisters already formed. I usually use Abreva which only works for me before the blister forms. I applied the Releev to the blisters which were burning and tender. Almost immediately the pain went away. The Releev kept the blisters from getting any bigger and within a day the blisters were turned to a small scab. Within four days the entire outbreak was virtually gone, there was still a scab there but it was small and barely noticable and almost completely healed. I noticed that when the scab was healing it was not a thick crusty dark scab but a more flesh toned scab. Some reviewers commented on the smell. I did not notice any smell. I noticed that the product made my cold sore feel a little tight but this might be because it was drying it out? The only reason I did not give five stars is because of the price and the size of the bottle. It is a little expensive. Also, I applied the liquid more than the bottle said. They recommend three times a day, but I reapplied everytime I ate or drank or brushed my teeth; about ten to twelve times a day. Fortunately you only need a tiny drop with each application. Overall this is a pretty good product. Anyone who has ever had a cold sore knows how painful and embarassing they are and how long they take to heal. This did not get rid of the cold sore (nothing does) but it really did shorten the duration from ten to five days. It seemed like it kept it from getting worse and the healing process started immediately. 12/21/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 Does what I need it to do I get a LOT of cold sores, fever blisters, or whatever you like to call those hideous lumpy oozing mouth sores. One day I had one coming on, couldn't find my tube of Abreeva, saw this in the store, and thought, well, it's got to be better than nothing. It definitely was! The sore never even develops when used while it was just a tingle. If you wait until it starts to surface, it does take a little longer, but I'd say it still helps it to heal a lot faster. Usually for me they last a week and a half or so, with Releev they only last three days or so. Downsides, well, it smells horrible, and it's a gross mossy brownish color. But, you only use a drop per treatment, so even that tiny bottle will last a good while, and if it works, I'm willing to overlook the smell and color! 03/30/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 The Review of Releev this product is good, but it has a bad smell to it, its in Liquid form so you have to use ur finger to put it on, and it has a Brownish-Green color to it. But the over all use of it is great. it works fast even though it is expencive, its $17.97. 04/23/2009
