I've used Denavir for a number of years, but yesterday morning I started to feel the tingle so I immediately started the treatment, trying to catch it early. I don't know what's happening here. First off, I get coldsores on both sides of my upper lip, but never at the same time, until yesterday. As I was treating my left side, I noticed the skin of my lip on the right side was becoming ...

Both my mom and I have dealt with cold sores (usually a few a year) all our lives. We've tried everything from home remedies and Lysine to over-the-counter medicines, but nothing helps the way that Denavir does! It truly stops cold sores dead in their tracks. The key is to begin applying it as soon as you suspect you're getting a cold sore. But even if you wait till the blisters have for ... Show Full Comment

Although the blister usually forms regardless of when in the outbreak I start Denavir, it significantly shortens the time that I have it. Without it my cold sore could last 10-14 days before totally gone. With Denavir it is averages about 5 days. To me it is worth the cost. Cold sores are horrible little things and the less time I have to deal with one on my lip the better.

I'm 33 and have had cold sore outbreaks since I was 13 or so. They used to come only once every few years but the last 2-3 years I have had outbreaks every 3-4 months or so. After just dealing with it without medication for most of my life I finally broke down and saw a doctor about it. I was prescribed Denavir about 3 months ago and wish I would have gotten ahold of it a LONG time ago. It wor ... Show Full Comment

My insurance paid half and I paid $211 for this little tube. It was worth every penny. Clears my cold sores in half the time. Cold sores make me sick like having the flu but this heads it off. More than happy with this medicine.
