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.

If you delete the other paragraphs that are repeated it would be better, as it has alot of detail in it even without the repeated parapgraphs!!! (lol) :oD

Great op, full of detail. I luckily (touch wood) have never had a cold sore. :oD

purebitch 12.03.2002 18:09

Nice op, but one paragraph has been repeated three times. As far as i can tell, it is word for word as well. :)

studies show that early treatment with Zovirax can
prevent a cold sore developing. Zovirax Cold Sore
Cream can also speed up the healing process.
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. The
virus may infect other parts of the body. To
reduce the risk of passing the infection on, avoid
kissing, sharing towels etc, kissing, oral sex,
touching your eyes. 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. Do not use after the expiry
date on the pack. Store at room temperature (below
25ºC). Do not refrigerate.
