He is claiming £136,328 in compensation from his date, including over £100,000 for fortnightly therapy sessions he says he needs until the age of 79 because “the lifelong virus” has blighted his career prospects and left him at risk of mental health issues.



I think he already has mental health issues.


Either way, product does not contain aciclovir, so not really worth 69p.
Don't wasre your money on creams. Buy a small red light therapy device for £5 best thing I ever bought, better than any cream.
The reason it is cheap is that it is just Zinc sulfate, Lidocaine hydrochloride a mild topical anaesthetic. It does not contain Acyclovir or similar antiviral.

The difference being the Zinc may help reduce the blistering by inhibiting the ability of the virus to reproduce, the Lidocaine will cause a slight numbing for an hour or so, useful if the area is sore but little else.

Using an anti-viral agent like Acyclovir actively attacks the virus, reducing recovery time and weakening the virus helping reduce the frequency of outbreaks.

Bottom line is this is not an alternative to Zovirax Cold Sore Cream or the far cheaper alternative Virasorb available from savers for £1. savers.co.uk/Hea…176

Worth adding that the following supplements have clinical evidence showing they reduce the reactivation frequency of the herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores...

Glutamine, Lysine and Rhodiola rosea, none of these are a cure but unlike many anecdotal remedies they have all been subject to trials that show they help.

Lysine absolutely works for keeping the virus at bay and/or preventing a full outbreak if you supplement when you feel you're about to have one. Thankfully if you eat a high quality animal-product (high bioavailability / usually full spectrum nutrition), then you should be getting plenty of lysine in your diet. Anyone I have suggested to go "paleo" and eat high quality animal products tend to see their cold-sore and other "typical" metabolic syndrome / illness outbreaks disappear for the most part long-term

I've got one of those red light things. It was from Llloyd's pharmacy but they stopped selling them about 5 years ago. When i get a coldsore it's a few rounds of that plus Zorvirax a few times a day. Where can you get them from now? Worried about if mine goes wrong. Lloyds called theirs Coldsore Advance.

Suing for the physiological distress it's caused yet running to the papers to tell the world he has a cold sore?
