 cream cold on the lips
 While people suffer from oral herpes, probably for thousands of years, we have not yet found a means by which to get rid of this disease. However, there are drugs - primarily for outdoor use - which help to get rid of cold symptoms and make it less noticeable. It should be borne in mind that an ointment or gel from a cold on the lips will be most effective if you start using it as soon as possible - with the appearance of itching and mild irritation in the mouth, which often precedes the appearance of herpes rash. In such cases, an ointment for cold lips can reduce the life of the disease for 1-2 days.

 But it does not eliminate it, and does not prevent the infection to others. With the help of ointments containing acyclovir and can not prevent the exacerbation of herpes in the future.

Before and after applying the ointment acyclovir need to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water. Wash your hands before using the ointment is necessary to exclude the possibility to bring an infection damaged skin (the risk is especially high when the blisters have burst, and had not time to heal), and after - to prevent the spread of infection to other parts of the body. For example, if the patient smazhet acyclovir cold on the lips, do not wash their hands and rubs his eyes, he can develop herpes eye infection - very unpleasant and sometimes dangerous disease.

Apply a cold acyclovir usually recommends five times a day (every three or four hours) over a minimum of four days. Apply it only on your skin - it should not get in your eyes, nose or in the mouth. If you get the ointment on the mucous membrane, rinse immediately with plenty of water.
