How to Use :
Use this medication at the first sign of infection (such as tingling, burning, redness).
Wash your hands with soap and water before and after applying this medication.
Clean and dry the affected areas before applying the medication.
Apply to the affected area and rub in gently, usually 5 times a day (every 3 to 4 hours) for 4 days for cold sores, or as directed by your doctor.
Apply enough cream to cover all affected areas (red/tingling/burning areas, sores).
Apply by gently dabbing cream with a clean finger or cotton bud over the sore five times daily.
Treatment should be continued for at least 4 days, but can be continued for up to a total of 10 days if the sore has not healed.
Wash hands after use, to prevent spreading cold sores and getting cream into the eyes or mouth.
Cold sores (herpes) can spread easily. Acyiclovir / Acyclovir cream does not prevent the spread of herpes. Avoid close physical contact with others (such as kissing) during an outbreak until the cold sores have completely healed.
Also, try not to touch the cold sore, and wash your hands if you do touch the cold sore.
