Yep, I know the feeling, as a child I suffered badly with cold sores maybe 3 or 4 at a time, although I would pick them and probably spead the virus.
It would seem that that is exactly the problem and there is no cure, the virus (herpes) lives within our glands and can erupt at any time (particularly at time of stress when or when our immune system is under attack).
Of course Zorvirax was not available then, but now I have a tube or pump dispenser in the house all the time, although they seem more prevalent during the colder months. In fact I brought a pump container just yesterday, it is available and all good chemists and even some supermarkets stock it, it cost £6.95 and the tube is £4.95 (I think) or there about. I always go the the large option. My partner has a cold sore on his face which has been getting worse for the last day or so (couldn’t find the Zovirax) so had to purchase another) however it has relieved the soreness already and will be gone by tomorrow.

Interaction Precautions: Only use the cream on cold sores on your lips and face. Do not use the cream inside your mouth, or to treat mouth (aphthous) ulcers. If you are in any doubt whether your sore is a cold sore, consult your doctor. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to aciclovir or propylene glycol, consult your pharmacist or doctor before using your cream. Do not use this product for herpes infections of the eye or the genital area. If your cold sore is, or becomes very severe, you should consult your doctor. Do not use this product if you are under the care of a doctor because of a weak immune system (i.e. your ability to fight infections is reduced). Remember - Cold Sore are infectious.

Do not allow others to touch your cold sore. Always wash your hands before and after touching cold sores. Avoid touching your eyes - HSV infection of the eye can lead to ulcers on the window of the eye (cornea). Avoid breaking the blisters, picking the scabs and sharing your eating and drinking utensils. This cream is normally well tolerated. However, some people may get the following: A mild burning or stinging directly after application, but this will quickly go away. Occasionally, redness, itching or a mild drying or flaking of the skin may occur. This does not prevent the cream from working. If in doubt, or if these side effects become troublesome, stop the treatment and consult your pharmacist or doctor. Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. For external use only.
