You can stop cold sores before they start. Zovirax Cold Sore Cream can help to prevent a cold sore appearing if used at the tingle stage (this is when you feel a tingling, burning or itching sensation). In most cases a tingle means the cold sore is at the early stages. It's important to use Zovirax Cold Sore Cream straight away as this stage may only last 24 hours.



Description and use

When a cold sore attacks, the infection starts deep under your skin. Only Zovirax cold sore cream is specially formulated with the patented Mac-P penetrating formula. The new improved formula allows Zovirax to get to the site of the infection fast to help speed healing. Zovirax is now also cosmetically enhanced. Once the cold sore has broken through the skin, healing can take up to 10 to 12 days, if not treated. Using Zovirax in the early stages can speed up the healing time by days. So if a cold sore does appear continue to use Zovirax.
