Aciclovir 5% Cream
1 x 10g tube – £16.99
Antiviral cream containing 5 percent aciclovir is used to treat recurrent cold sores. It is a generic (non-trademarked) version of the widely available Zovirax cream and comes in 10 gram tubes. Aciclovir cream can significantly reduce the duration and severity of cold sores if applied early in an outbreak, ideally before the sore has even appeared. The larger 10g Aciclovir 5% cream is a simple and cost-effective method for treating recurrent cold sores.
What is the cream Aciclovir?
Antiviral aciclovir is contained within aciclovir cream. It eliminates the herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores to appear around the mouth and face. If the outbreak of cold sores is detected early, during the “tingle” phase, Aciclovir cream can sometimes prevent the cold sore from erupting. In most cases, it can aid in the healing of a cold sore within four to five days.
Cold sores recur frequently in the same location. Before a cold sore appears as a blister around the lip, the skin in this area typically tingles or burns. Aciclovir should be applied as soon as a tingling sensation is detected.
If your doctor has diagnosed you with recurring cold sores, you can purchase aciclovir cream online. It should not be administered to children or used to treat herpes genitalis. If cold sores appear around the nose or are yellow and crusty, it could be a sign of impetigo and you should seek medical attention.
