Zovirax is a treatment for people who suffer from cold sores. It contains the active ingredient aciclovir (5%).

Generally the cream will be effective within 2-3 days, however you should continue to use the cream for at least 5 days.

Zovirax is most effective if you manage to start applying the cream during the tingling phase of a cold sore, before it has actually blistered. You can use it however even after the cold sore has blistered.
