    zovirax xxxx

    or fengel

    Zavirex

    Or get a small spoon, a bit of instant coffee and a couple of drops of water ( So its a paste) put it on as soon as you feel the twinge

    works for me

    compeed i used to use zovirax but your body gets immune to it!

    Fenistill

    You want aciclovir - its the main ingredient in zovirax (thats a brand name and what you would purchase in a shop/chemist) and other common cold sore treatments

    Dr should know what to give you though if you tell him you are having problems with coldsores

    No I noramally just put toothpaste on them so dry them out as things from boots never worked.

    My OH does too and he bought a light machine from Boots that he reckons has really helped speed up the healing process and he says he gets less now! It's like a little torch and it cost about £30 I think.

    There are two types of herpes simplex virus.

    HSV-1, which is the most common type, usually causes cold sores (oral herpes).

    HSV-2 usually causes genital herpes. But both types can infect any area of the skin or mucous membranes.

    coldsores=herpes

    Canesten is to treat fungal infections eg thrush, athletes foot etc. A cold sore is not a fungus it is a virus. This is the wrong treatment
