Cold sores, known medically as herpes labialis are very common and are easily recognised because they often appear as blisters around the lips and mouth.They pop up in response to a viral infection.
They are often uncomfortable and can make some people feel very self-conscious.
The earlier you treat a cold sore, the better.
The best time to start treatment is when that tingling sensation first happens, before any visible sign of cold sore appears.
If you miss it, don’t worry, it’s not too late to treat.
Stages of the virus
After the itchy, tingly stage, the site of the cold sore gradually develops into a blister or a small group of blisters, surrounded by red and swollen skin.
After a day or so these burst to produce the typical open sore.
Like a sore anywhere on your body, these sores gradually dry up and form a crusty scab, which is usually a yellow-brown colour.
The sore gradually heals.
The scab falls off over a few days and should completely disappear after around 10 days, or faster with the use of Zovirax Cold Sore Cream.
The area may be a bit swollen for few days.
Wash your hands before and after treating your cold sore so you don't make it worse or infect
Squeeze or pump a small amount of cream onto your finger.
Apply to the affected area 5 times a day, (about every 4 hours).
If you forget a treatment, apply some as soon as you remember and continue as before.
Continue treatment for 5 days.Zovirax Coldsore Cream Pump contains enough cream for 3
or 4 cold sore attacks.
Keep the cream with you at all times so you can treat your next cold sore as soon as you feel the tingle.
If full healing has still not occurred after 10 days, or if your cold sore becomes very severe, consult your pharmacist.
Do not exceed the stated dose.
Cold sores are infectious. Always wash your hands after touching cold sores, or applying medication to them.
Avoid touching your eyes.
Women are advised to be especially careful when applying make-up. Do not use saliva to wet contact lenses.
Avoid kissing, especially children, when you have a cold sore.
Avoid breaking the blisters and picking the scabs.
Not only can you infect your fingers with virus – you may infect your cold sore with other germs (eg bacteria).
Avoid sharing your eating and drinking utensils.
Avoid sharing the same towel with other people.
Do not use if you are pregnant or are breast feeding unless your doctor advises.
You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use
Zovirax Coldsore Cream is a smooth white cream containing aciclovir 5% w/w in a water-miscible cream base containing propylene glycol.
Temporary burning or stinging
Redness of the skin may occur in some patients.
Rarely, contact dermatitis after application of the cream (generally due to the components of the cream base rather than aciclovir).
Patients who have any concerns should see their doctor or pharmacist.
