Zovirax is good but is like between €10 & €12 for a tiny tube which will only treat one attack. I just get generic Aciclovir called Acic
5% cream was only around €6 it is basically Zovirax in everything but name, get that and teach those b*stards in GlaxoSmithKline a lesson.
Linky for Acic
Plus it is made in Ireland down in Bantry.
Thanks for that, never saw it for sale before but I will ask the local chemist to get it in for me.
I have used the compeed (sp?) small circular patches. They are only alright. I put one on one day and put make up over it (like the add says). A child at my daughter's school asked me what was on my lip
. They tell it like it is. Then when I went to take it off it pulled the skin off with it, the pain
Do not kiss any children when you have it. I got it from my mother and hope not to pass it on, but it is so hard not to kiss my children, very unnatural given their ages 2, 3 and 7.
To the Op hope it gets better soon.
Edit to add that there is a supplement that you get at health food stores to stop an outbreak. Think it called Lysine or something like that. Either Google it or ask at a health food store.
