Was a gamechanger - Bring it Back

I started getting cold sores (herpes #1) on my cheek since I was 18, and they always were a better indicator of when I was fighting something than any thermometer, if there is such a thing as a good thing about herpes. I have absolutely loved your product since I found out about it roughly 12 years ago. As soon as I realized I had a cold sore, I would take your product, work it into the effected area somewhat harshly until it numbed it, broke it, and at least irritated it (even if it was just an itch), and then proceeded to treat with Abreva thereafter. I gave Orajel the "Itch management/containment" and "symptom mitigation" management due to the awesome numbing abrasive and skin "drying/hardening". After it dried, I used Abreva to be the science on top of that which may reduce longevity of symptoms in general. I have never had a complaint about your product, but it seems you have changed it. Let me explain. For years, when I used your product, the instructions were to USE IT ALL, and the liquid contents (volume of product) were of greater amount... DOUBLE if I had to guess, and that required at least 4 minutes of rubbing and holding down the applicator on the effected area. It also had, if I dare to guess, a "layering function" upon drying, like a tiny amount of super glue in it. For at least years from the start, I suffered without any real treatment except acycolovir, which makes your nerves even more on edge, until I found your product. This last time I got a bad case was parallel, as usual, to a wicked cold or covid or whatever, and the herpes on my cheek had every intention to persist. It was then I learned that your product didn't do what it did before. Maybe it is because there is obviously less liquid in the vial. Maybe it doesn't have the potency either. Maybe it is because you have reduced the "super glue" factor to it. but either way, I have gone through literally 8 packages in 2 weeks, just trying to contain the spread, and all my Abreva (which hasn't changed). For years, I would often not EVEN NEED to follow-up with Abreva. Your product was so powerful that it contained the itching, dried the skin, created a protective layer, and made me able to go about my life without obsessing about the itching and discomfort. I either want my money back, or I want a CASE of the stuff I spent, easily $350, on just your product, in support of containment of this case. I even had to go to my doctor, where your product, in it's original form and dosage would simply allow me to be king and go about my day without an obnoxiously reminding and unrelenting cheek.... but not this time. Now I have the access to Valocyclovir, which is equally poor as to side effects, and general malaise it causes. In conclusion, I am not kidding about wanting more for free. I haven't given up on your product, but maybe you tell everyone they need to pull out three, and use them all as if they had one from before. Without your product, even now with the change, herpes is unbearable and cruel. I will continue to use your product even though you seem to be punishing us with wrecking a good thing. Bring it back.

Went to the store to purchase the usual stuff I would get for cold sores and seen these and decided to give it a try. OMG my cold sore was gone and healed within 5 days. Would recommend using cold sore patches since it usually helps contain the virus

I've so far used 3 of the 4 vials and it has done absolutely nothing for my cold sore. I started to use it the day the cold sore became apparent to me. I feel like the only good this product is doing is increasing Orajel's bottom line.

It’s amazing. Will immediately relieve pain and if you apply it as soon as you feel a cold sore, it practically works overnight. The only downfall is the price. You can only use one of the tubes once and you only get 4 of them. However, it works far better than any other treatment I’ve tried.

Best cold sore treatment ever! You MUST apply at the onset of a cold sore for best results. Clears it up right away. I am a little disappointed that I just bought it 2 months ago and it has gone up $6 in price.

bethyb - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
Works great. Used it for years and have learned a thing or two: be sure to use it AT THE FIRST SIGN OF A COLD SORE. Do NOT wait. Wipe the area with a damp tissue first. Don't eat or drink or brush your teeth for at least 45 mins afterwards or it may not work. I always have these on hand and in my purse. Worth every penny.

This product works well when applied at the onset of a cold sore. It help eliminate the onset of the symptoms of a cold sore. It helps reduce the length of healing process when applied when symptoms first start.

I love this stuff but why can’t there be a larger tube and better applicator? I feel like you could make more money, selling more oz of the serum And remove the glass inside to make packaging cheaper. It’s a great product but a pain to purchase enough

Whoa, the product arrived in the mail, and I returned it as soon as I read the side effects. Cutting off blood oxygen absorption? No thanks. No matter how good it works, I’m not signing up for that.

This is one of the few things that help my husbands cold sores. We bought some to keep in hand in case he has a flare up. This is also way cheaper than the drugstore! He said it tingles and numbs when he uses it but helps dry out the cold sore.

This is an amazing delivery system. They have created a mucosal adhering gel system that delivers 5% benzocaine numbing cream. The mucosal gel helps the benzocaine to adhere to your sores and not wash right off.

I am a 77 year old man and haven't had a cold sore since I was a teenager. When I recently go one I tried a leading brand for relief. It got so sore that I had trouble eating, especially food with salt in it. After two days of no improvement I bought Orajel for Cold Sores and in seconds the pain was gone and in four more days the cold sore was gone. Great product with great results.

I’ve suffered from cold sores for as long as I can remember. I can’t believe I’ve never used this product. I was unsure if I was using it correctly the first time (didn’t realize the white portion absorbed the medication and was ultimately the applicator). Cool technology and useful product with amazing and quick results. If applied early enough, the sore goes away overnight. I would use this over and over again.

I got this product hoping for some relief....etc. anyone that deals with cold sores know exactly what I mean. I had one on my upper lip, left side for a little over 2 weeks, right before that one went away, ANOTHER ONE showed up on my lower lip on the right side ...... This one was more painful then before.... So I figured I better get some new ointments and lysine pills. I got this hoping it would help....... IT MADE IT WORSE!!! I used it once a day for two days now and it hurts so far worse than any other cold sore I have dealt with. It's like it built a dome over the cold sore and kept all pain inside there. It itches worse, it burned worse and it lasted much much longer. I.... 110% .... WOULDNT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!! you're better off going and cutting part of your lip OFF!! be warned.... Don't try this!!

If you get horrible cold sore on and off, forget about this product. I get cold sores from stress, anxiety, or simply getting the flu or cold. I have used everything out there, included toothpastes, hydrogen peroxide, and even baking soda pastes. Nothing works so well. But this for sure does not work. If you’re looking for something to numb you up bc of the pain for a short period of time, this is for you. If your looking for potential treatment, this is not it , nor will it prevent The outbreak when you get the feeling that it’s coming. Skip this and go for your usual home remedies. What a waste of money. Do better Orajel.

My daughter has been getting cold sores since the age of 5, she's 11 now. I have tried EVERYTHING. This is the only thing that helps her. Yesterday, I got home to her in tears from the pain. It was only one blister but her whole bottom lip was swollen. We knew she was going to get an outbreak the day before but I didn't find this brand, so I bough her abreva which also had good reviews. It did nothing for her. Went to 3 different stores, finally found them and within 10 min her lip was 10x better. Then pain was gone, and the swelling had gone down. Every single time, these come through. Thank you Orajel!!

I bought this Orajel a little while ago because I have always been satisfied with how it worked. This tube, however, doesn't alleviate the pain or soreness at all. Not happy and still in pain.
