Zovirax Cream 5 g *Aciclovir* 5% x 1 tube
Zovirax Cream (aciclovir, also spelled acyclovir)
is a topical antiviral medication most frequently used to treat cold sores caused by the herpes virus on the lips and face. It should not be used in patients under 12 years of age or in individuals with a compromised immune system.
While the active ingredient in this product, aciclovir, is used to treat a range of viral infections all over the body, Zovirax Cream should only be used on the lips and face. It is not formulated for ingestion or use on mucus membranes such as inside the mouth, nose, genitals and so forth. Similarly other topical skin products should not be used on the same area as Zovirax Cream
Healing Cold Sores with Zovirax Cream
Zovirax Cream does not cure cold sores, but does reduce their severity and duration. Results are best when treatment starts at the earliest symptoms of a cold sore outbreak, so be sure to buy Zovirax Cream ahead of time. Some common indications that a cold sore is developing include:
When the above symptoms are noticed, Zovarix Cream treatment should begin:
- Clean and dry hands and affected area.
- Apply a small amount of the cream directly to the affected area, extending a short way onto surrounding healthy skin.
- Repeat application 5 times per day; applications should be spread as evenly apart as possible.
- Continue treatment for at least 4 days, even if symptoms disappear.
- Treatment may continue for up to 10 days if symptoms persist.
- Wash hands thoroughly after touching the affected area to prevent spread of the virus.
- Avoid rubbing, scratching or otherwise touching the affected area, as doing so will likely worsen the cold sore.
Many people experience a mild burning or stinging when the cream is first applied; these sensations should pass quickly and are not cause for concern unless severe.
Results can vary to some extent between individuals, and even between individual cold sores or outbreaks. In general, even if Zoverax Cream is applied at the earliest symptoms, cold sores will still develop to some extent; however, the pain, itching and appearance are less severe than they would be without treatment, and sores heal and disappear faster.
If treatment begins at later stages of cold sore development results will likely not be as significant as when treatment begins at the earliest stages.
Zovirax Cream will not prevent future cold sores from developing. There is no benefit to be had by applying the cream to healthy skin prior to experiencing any symptoms.
Used properly, side effects are unusual and rarely serious. The most commonly experienced side effects include:
- Mild burning or stinging at application site
- Itching around application site
- Dry or flaking skin around application site
- Dry or cracked lips
