For fast acting relief of cold sores, use Zovirax Cold Sore Cream Pump. The antiviral cream works to stop replication of the virus while treating it. A combination of acyclovir and the patented MAC-P, the cream penetrates five times faster than other brands. Zovirax Cold Sore Cream Pump can be used at any of the four stages of a cold sore, but recommended at the first tingle.

Pharmacist Tip

Cold sores are caused by the Herpes simplex virus and are contagious. Avoid direct contact with sores and avoid sharing cutlery, crockery or food until the ulcer has completely healed.

When you feel the tingle of a cold sore, be sure to have Zovirax Cold Sore Cream on hand to stop it in its tracks. It has been proven to speed up healing time with the use of acyclovir to knock it out at its roots. The antiviral cream uses the patented absorption accelerant, MAC-P, to penetrate the skin five times faster than leading brands.

Zovirax Cold Sore Cream stops the virus from replicating while treating it from the origin to for faster healing time. Its moisturizing properties help keep your lips soft and smooth.

Zovirax Cold Sore Cream Pump
Never had any second thought when it comes to cold sore cream. This does exactly what it says and it does it quickly. This is a good price too. Normally 6/7 pounds where I use to get it.

Zovirax Cold Sore Cream Pump
This is a good cream but I recently tried the non-branded equivalent that worked just as well for me, so on reflection this is very expensive.
