Zovirax Cold Sore Cream - 2g Tube 4.7 5 3 3
By far the most powerful cold sore treatment I've ever tried. Ever since I was a child I've had cold sores, I'm the type to not just get one but an outbreak of even 13-14 at one time and my mouth being full of ulcers (At worst) At best I usually get around 5 and feel very run down. I first discovered Zovirax about 6 years ago in Boots when I was 14, it is expensive but I bought it out of desperation and suffering and it worked VERY quickly. As soon as you put it in within the hour I find my cold sores calm down, the swelling relieves and they heal up somewhat. This cream seems to help with the pain but it can't stop you feeling run-down as it is a viral infection. I like to place this cream on, rub it in a little but I leave it white on my lips and I find that this really helps keep it working for longer especially at night or when just sitting about the house because it dries in and can keep fighting. The cream is instructed to be used up to 5 times per day, usually after the first usage you can definitely see and feel a difference. My lips tend to split and bleed with them and form a scab but I find this cream really helps heal the skin over before it can bleed whilst removing most of the pain, swelling and the blisters themselves. I highly recommend this product, no other ones work as fast or come as close as this does. It's definitely worth the money and you can more than treat your cold sores with the size of the tube. Whether you have one cold sore or horrendous outbreaks like me it will really help you, always keep some in your drawer and as soon as you feel the first tingle of your cold sores coming, whack the cream on and it will block them. 13 November 2013
efective have had cold sore outbreaks every 3-4 months since my late teens, now 38, tried lots of things, natural... all ok, but recently I ve given zovirax a try. and I NEVER LOOK BACK. when it comes to cold sore for me this IS THE BEST. its worth every penny. a cold sore around upper lip will last 15-20 days, treated from the start with zovirax 5-6 days. it does makes a lot of diff. recommended. 13 December 2013
The only one that works! I have suffered with cold sores since a teenager discovering Zovirax made such a difference. The secret lies in using it as soon as you notice the first tingle! Within 5 days the worst is over. If you catch it really early the effects of the cold sore can be diminished significantly. I have discovered there is no point in using any other product and never go away without it in my overnight bag! 04 August 2015
