Cold sores (herpes labialis) are an extremely common viral infection that tends to manifest around the mouth and lips. It is well known that the earlier you treat a cold sore, the better chance you have of minimising the infection. The best time to start treatment is before any visible sign of a cold sore appears, during the tingling stage. Cymex Ultra Cream contains the active ingredient Aciclovir 5%, which if used at the tingling stage, can stop the progress of cold sores or limit the severity of the attack and speed up healing. It may also help to speed up the healing process of an already formed cold sore.
Aciclovir 5% is an antiviral agent that has been shown to be effective in treating infections caused by the herpes simplex virus, such as cold sores and genital herpes. Aciclovir works by slowing down the growth of the herpes simplex virus, and speeds the healing of cold sore blisters.
For best results, apply Cymex Ultra to cold sores as soon as possible, preferably at the first sign of their arrival but treatment can be started later if necessary. Apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area 5 times a day at approximately 4 hourly intervals, to help get your lips back into tip-top shape. Continue for at least 4 days.
