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, dont worry, its not too late to treat! Cold Sore Cream contains the same active ingredient as Zovirax cream which retails for £5.99 in chemists and supermarkets. Frequently Asked Questions 1. How can you sell this item for so much less than my local chemist? We keep our overheads to a minimum, ensure the margins added are fair and work on larger sale volumes than a local chemist. All these measures provide major cost saving benefits to the consumer. Our prices on this medication are based on the non branded version of Zovirax. Zovirax's active ingredient is Aciclovir 5% which actually provides the desired effects. 2. Does your medication give me the same effect as the branded version? Absolutely. When a pharmaceutical company develops a drug it is given unique rights to sell it for a number of years. Once that ends any company can make it providing they meet the regulations. Therefore, over the counter drugs have identical medical properties regardless of brand, packaging and advertising. The key is the active' ingredient - the chemical that actually treats the symptom. Protections and quality control apply equally to all branded and non branded products. The non branded product must meet the same quality standards as the branded version. Packaging may vary, but the items are identical and the results will be the same. Dr. Chris Steele GP, the resident Doctor on ITV1's This Morning agrees: The key is the active ingredient. Look on the brand you know, note the active ingredient and then check it's the same one at the same dose as the generic brand."
How to use Cold Sore Cream: Cold Sore Cream as soon as you notice the symptoms. Adults and children: Spread a layer of cream liberally over the sore and surrounding area as soon as the tingling starts. Apply the cream 5 times daily for 5 days.
