Zovirax Cold Sore Cream Tube is for the treatment of cold sores. If your cold sore has already appeared, than Zovirax Cold Sore Cream can help to speed up the healing process.

Zovirax Cold Sore Cream works to relieve the irritating symptoms such as itching and soreness and helps to speed up the healing process- causing it to scab and gradually disappear.

5X faster treatment

It contains aciclovir, an antiviral ingredient that fights the cold sore virus. With the unique MAC-P formula, the cream penetrates a cold sore up to 5 times faster to quickly reach the site of infection.

How to use Zovirax Cream:

  • Wash your hands before and after treating your cold sore so you don't make it worse or infect someone else.
  • 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.

Zovirax Coldsore Cream Pump may cause:

  • temporary burning or stinging
  • flaking
  • itching
  • 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.

Zovirax Coldsore Cream is a smooth white cream containing aciclovir 5% w/w in a water-miscible cream base containing propylene glycol.
