Not all cold sore treatments are equal

Be warned. Many cold sore treatments available from pharmacies or supermarkets, only act as mild antiseptics and skin moisturisers. Zovirax antiviral cream contains an antiviral ingredient (aciclovir) that stops the virus replicating or treats the virus.

How Zovirax Works

Zovirax Cream delivers the antiviral active ingredient, aciclovir, in a special formulation containing MAC-P. MAC-P is an absorption accelerator that allows the active ingredient to penetrate the skin up to 5 x faster* to get to the area where the virus is reproducing. Once it reaches this area the active ingredient springs into action – making it difficult for the virus to reproduce itself. When that happens, your body's natural defences can get to work and help to heal the cold sore. The cream also contains ingredients which help moisturise deep within the skin to soothe and protect.

It's best to start treatment with Zovirax antiviral cream as soon as you feel the tingle, so Zovirax antiviral cream can help stop the virus replication. However, the antiviral properties of Zovirax cream means it is also effective at the blister phase - helping to speed healing compared to no treatment.
