Zovirax Cream (acyclovir) for Cold Sores: “Zovirax cream is amazing. I hardly ever get an actual cold sore anymore, because I apply the cream as soon as I feel any tingle and it prevents the outbreak. Well, 3 days ago, I missed the tingle because I had a huge pimple forming on my chin, just under my lip, and it was so painful that it masked the tingle on my lip. By the time I woke up & realized what was happening, my lip had already swollen quite badly. I was horrified & thought the battle was already lost, but I immediately started applying Zovirax. My lip still swelled up to 3 times its size over the next 36 hours, but then it started to recede and never even blistered! It is now 3 days after it started & my lip is almost back to normal. I cannot believe it worked when the cold sore had already taken hold, and stopped the blisters from erupting. I love this stuff so much! It cost about $80 for a 5g tube the last time I bought it, but it lasts a long time for me. I always carry it in my purse so I am armed for battle.”

Zovirax Cream (acyclovir) for Cold Sores: “Zovirax works great on cold sores. I use at first sign for a few days and it doesn’t even blister. If I get a blister it doesn’t get big and dries up 2 to 3 days. Abreva never worked for me. This stuff is great”

Zovirax Cream (acyclovir) for Cold Sores: “Zovirax does work. The trick is to apply small amounts as soon as possible and as often as possible. The more times you apply the more chances you have of healing quicker. Applying 3 x a day just aint going to cut it. (Every hour or less if you have to)”

For Herpes Simplex: “I use the generic brand by Mylan. This product is amazing. Even if you have a bad outbreak it cuts the healing time by a few days. That may seem minimal to some, but those who suffer from cold sores, this is superb. If you apply it during the first signs you will not even have an outbreak.”

Zovirax cream It costs in other countries less than $20.00 It’s very sad how they take advantage of people here in USA. Less than $20. Lol same Zovirax cream. Have mercy on people and stop using them like this!”

For Herpes Simplex: “I was diagnosed with genital herpes earlier today, though the symptoms began a month ago and I mistaken it for a yeast infection. The sores started last Monday (5 days ago). The burning was so bad to the point where I had trouble walking. After applying acyclovir earlier I experienced moderate burning for a short amount of time but after sitting down for awhile I felt relief. let’s hope that tomorrow the sores aren’t as painful”
