Product Description

Key features

Effective prescription strength cream specifically targeted at the virus that causes cold sores
This medicine has the same active ingredient, 5% Aciclovir, as Zovirax and Virasorb
Aciclovir cream is efficiently absorbed into the skin to fight the virus that causes cold sores and rapidly help you get back your healthy lips and skin around the lips.
Best used at the time of the first tingling sensation but will also reduce the healing time after the blister has formed.
Suitable for all ages

Patient Information leaflet


Aciclovir is an antiviral cream used to treat herpes simplex. Herpes simplex virus or HSV for short is a highly contagious virus that once contracted, usually before the age of 10, lies inactive within the body. HSV can then become active from time to time, usually if you are run down. HSV is very common it is believed that 7 in 10 people carry the virus but for some people it might remain inactive.

Aciclovir works by preventing the virus from multiplying and spreading so helping the immune system to fight it off. This means it will help the healing process of current sores and prevent new ones from developing. Aciclovir will not eliminate the herpes simplex virus or prevent future outbreaks of cold sores occurring. It also won’t stop you spreading the virus to others.

How to use

Before using Aciclovir cream:

Some medical conditions may interact with Aciclovir cream. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

If you have ever had an allergic reaction to Aciclovir, valaciclovir, propylene glycol or any other ingredients of the preparation

Do NOT use Aciclovir Cream

Inside your mouth (e.g. for mouth ulcers) or nose.

In the eyes or genital area.

Using Aciclovir cream:

Suitable for all ages
Apply at the first signs of a cold sore (such as tingling and itching).
Apply liberally to the affected area 5 times a day.
Continue treatment for 4 days. If your cold sore hasn’t healed after this time, you can use the cream for up to 10 days in total.

If you forget a dose, apply when you remember and continue as before.
