Information Leaflet

Description

Zovirax Cold Sore Cream Pump works to relieve the irritating symptoms such as itching and soreness and helps to speed up the healing process- causing it to scab and gradually disappear.

5X faster treatment

It contains aciclovir, an antiviral ingredient that fights the cold sore virus. With the unique MAC-P formula, the cream penetrates a cold sore up to 5 times faster to quickly reach the site of infection.

Use Zovirax five times a day at approximately four-hourly intervals for four days. Zovirax Cold Sore Cream helps you get your healthy lips back fast.
