Always read the instructions on your prescription label and follow your doctor’s instructions exactly. 

Use Zovirax at the first sign of an infection. Always wash your hands both before and after using Zovirax ointment and clean and dry the infected area before application. Rub the medication into the affected area gently about every 3-4 hours for 4 days (or as told by your doctor). 

Apply an adequate amount of ointment to properly cover the affected areas. Only apply it to the skin and avoid application inside the mouth, eyes, inside the vagina, or nose. If you get medication in those areas rinse them thoroughly with water. Your doctor will determine your dosage depending on your response to treatment, medical condition, and type of infection. Don’t use Zovirax for longer than it’s prescribed. Ensure you apply it evenly as this medication works best when it’s applied consistently at evenly spaced intervals. 

Use Zovirax at the same times each day to help you remember to use it. Use a rubber glove or finger cot when applying to genital herpes sores to avoid spreading the infection. Unless instructed by your doctor, do not apply other skin products to the affected areas. Cold sores spread easily and Zovirax will not prevent the spread of herpes. Avoid close physical contact with others until the sores are completely healed. 

If you’re using Zovirax for the treatment of genital herpes ensure you follow safe sex practices in order to reduce the risk of spreading herpes to your partner even if you aren’t currently exhibiting any symptoms. Do not have sex when you are experiencing symptoms or an outbreak. If your condition persists or worsens after the treatment is finished talk with your doctor.
