I have used this product both on cold sores and fever blisters. When applied a the first sign like tingling, burning, it starts stopping the condition immediately.

using it the continuation of pain of shingles, which has been going on for years now. Don't know what else to use. It is of little help, short term relief.

Was out of the country when started developing fever blister from excessive sun exposure, despite wearing SPF 45 on lips. Went to local drug store seeking Abevia. The pharmacist/doctor? wrote and filled the Rx for this. Worked wonders - blisters never fully developed and relieved the soreness immediately. Sore is still red but almost gone after 3 days.

I am using zovirax for shingles

Comment from: frank, 75 or over Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: May 25

I had very bad infection on my right cheek of my buttoks. It was quite painful and even affected my groin and right testicle although that area did not have sores. The sores were flaking of the skin. Applying this ointment took a few weeks and the sores cleared up although the pain lasted weeks longer. Would like to know if this medication may be used otherwise. I am in my 80's and have residue of acne since chidhood and continue to break out with ulcers quite often. I have not had chicken pox, just measles.
