Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturing country depending on the country of origin.
Viratac Cold Sore Cream is for the treatment of cold sores. It is best to apply the cream when the first symptoms (tingling, itching or burning sensation) are noticed.
DIRECTIONS: Apply 5 times a day for 5 to 7 Days to the affected site. Wash hands before and after touching cold sores.
PRECAUTIONS: For external use only. Do not use in or around eyes. To avoid spreading infection do not share your towel or drinking vessel and avoid kissing. Consult your doctor if the cold sores persist beyond 7 days.
INGREDIENTS: Aciclovir BP 5% w/w
Worked really well for me. I nearly always get cold sores after being in the sun and wind and try to take lots of Lysine in the lead up to exposure, but I could not find any in the chemists here in S...uva, and so went out unprotected. I found Viratac at the chemist after the cold sores had developed and the cream has really helped. Within 3 days the sores have dried up and are less conspicuous. I'm also using the Viratac lipbalm.More Less
