This is usually around the £6/£8 mark.
Ridiculously cheap.

Saw this in my local Tesco in Chelmsford but I assume it's nationwide.

I pay under £1 for wilkinsons own brand same ingredients(aciclovir ) same results but a lot cheaper

Yep a pound in poundland too for aciclovir cream.

Heat from me.... having tried the generic own brand creams I must say I found this better as it's thicker and stays put for longer. Don't know if it's national but if it is, good price.

I find that the own brand one is never as good. It's never thick enough and never as effective.

a chemist recommended Virasorb to me years ago and it is the best cold sore cream that I have tried and it can be found in poundland!

Just get anything with 5% aciclovir (anti viral) and your good to go.

well spotted...

Good price for brand whores.

I am far too tight though X)

Better than acyclovir, get one of these

Never had a sore develop since I used one.

Yep I get the cream from wilkinsons for 99p, interested by the device posted by spraint, like most people I'm sceptical it would work but all bar 1 review claim it does.

Best things I've found are the Compeed patches. Seem to heal much quicker and as it seals the wound it's less exposed and gives good pain relief whilst it's on.

this doesn't do anything for mine if I get one but heat for the price! fenistil is the best I've had touch wood I've never had one come out on my lip properly since :-)

This stuff is essential for cold sore sufferers. Bargain.

expensive for 5 % aciclovir cream (which as others say is exactly what it is) but I'd consider paying the extra for the pump version (as it's on sale!)

not to keen on the 'pump' type dispensers as you don't know when it's contents are getting low and it WILL run out at the most inoppertune time......

I find those the worst. Even worse than letting the sore run its course. All it does is coop up the sore so that it cooks under the patch. The sore grows larger and redder than normal and takes longer to scab over and heal. I would never use one again.

The wand I linked to worked for me and I was very sceptical despite largely favourable reviews for it and similar products abroad. It may not work for everyone but for a tenner it is worth a punt as these usually go for double that. I bought a similar thing for mouth ulcers, which cost a lot more but did nothing, so no guarantees.

It's funny; different things seem to work better (or worse) for different people. I've tried the IR light things which don't seem to help at all, and find Zovirax too aggressive and tends to make the healing time longer for me. I've found the Compeeds to heal (from the start of the tingle) in about a week or less. Definitely worth trying everything to see what works best for you
