What are Cold Sores?
A cold sore usually starts with a tingling, itching or burning feeling. Over the next 48 hours small fluid-filled blisters appear, which can appear anywhere on the face and then burst and crust over into a scab. Cold sores are common and usually clear up on their own within 10 days but are contagious and may be irritating or painful while they heal. They are contagious from the moment you first feel tingling or other signs of a cold sore coming on to when the cold sore has completely healed. There are things you can do to help ease the pain and pharmacists can recommend creams to ease pain and irritation and antiviral creams to speed up healing time such as Zovirax Cold Sore Cream.
How to Use
It should be applied at the first sign of a tingle, bump or itch. If you miss the first signs, it can also be started to use at the blister stage. It should be applied to the affected area five times a day at approximately four hourly intervals, omitting the night time application, for four days.
You should continue treating with Zovirax Cold Sore Cream for at least 4 days. If healing has not occurred, treatment may be continued for up to 10 days. If the cold sore persists after 10 days, talk to your healthcare professional.
Always wash your hands with soap and water before and after treating your cold sore and remove any cosmetics before applying Zovirax Cold Sore Cream. It can be applied with a cotton swab or your finger, using enough to completely cover the sore and surrounding area. If you miss a dose, just apply the next time you remember and continue on schedule.
