Zovirax is used in the treatment of herpes labialis (cold sores). It can speed up the healing of the sores and limit symptoms. Acyclovir is an antiviral which works by preventing virus growth. It doesn’t prevent future occurrences.
Always consult the Patient Information Leaflet and ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions. Use this medication at the first signs of infection (burning, tingling, or redness). Always wash your hands before and after application and clean and dry the affected area before application. Rub the medication gently into the affected area usually every 3-4 hours (about 5 times a day) for 4 days for cold sores or as told by your doctor.
Apply an adequate amount of ointment to fully cover the affected areas. Apply to skin only, do not apply to eyes, inside nose or mouth or inside the vagina. If you do get medication in those areas ensure you flush thoroughly with water. Your doctor will base your dosage depending on your medical condition, response to treatment, and type of infection. Don’t use this drug for longer than it’s prescribed. Regular use of this medication will give you the most benefit from it. Zovirax works best when the amount absorbed by the skin stays at a consistent level, so use it at evenly placed intervals.
Use Zovirax at the same times daily to help you remember to use it. To prevent the medication from washing off do not swim, shower or bathe right after application. Use a finger cot or rubber gloves when applying to genital herpes sores to avoid spreading the infection. Refrain from applying other skin products unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Cold sores spread easily and Zovirax does not prevent the spread of herpes. Until the sores have completely healed avoid close physical contact with others. Do not touch the sore and wash your hands if you do.
If acyclovir is being used for the treatment of genital herpes ensure you are following safe sex practices to reduce the risk of spreading herpes to your partner even if no symptoms are currently present. Do not have sexual relations when you have symptoms or are experiencing an outbreak. If your condition persists or worsens when the treatment is finished tell your doctor.
