Were you looking for information on Abreva? Abrevia is a common misspelling of Abreva.
Abreva® is the first (and currently only) non-prescription drug available that is used for the treatment of cold sores. While the medication cannot prevent future outbreaks, it can shorten the healing time and duration of symptoms. Abreva is applied directly to the cold sore, and works best if taken at the first sign of an outbreak. Possible side effects include headaches, a stuffy or runny nose, and painful menstrual periods.
