Wash your hands before and after using the 2g pump. This will ensure you don't spread the infection or pass it on to another person.

If it has still not healed or has gotten worse, see your doctor.

There are 4 stages of a cold sore. You can use scientifically proven Zovirax Cold Sore Cream at any stage to lessen its impact on your life.

1) Tingle Stage
Your skin tingles and itches and you know a cold sore is on its way. Treat this symptom with Zovirax Cold Sore Cream and you could stop the cold sore appearing. Remember, if you are prone to cold sores and you sense the tingle, the cold sore is at the early stages. This stage may only last 24 hours so it's important to use Zovirax Cold Sore Cream right away.

2) Blister Stage
A small, raised blotch swells and forms a painful single blister or cluster of blisters. When the blister first breaks through the skin, healing can take several days. Apply Zovirax Cold Sore Cream at this stage and it helps to speed up the healing by days. Carry on using it if your cold sore does develop.

3) Weeping Stage
Now the blisters collapse and join up to form a large, weeping sore. The virus can spread very easily at this stage. Most people find this the most embarrassing stage.

4) Scab Stage
The blisters begin to dry out and heal. A scab begins to form. If picked at, the scab may crack painfully and bleed.

Precautions:Read the label carefully and follow directions properly. It should be kept out of reach of children. Keep at room temperature before and after first opening of the pack. Avoid contact with the eyes. For external use only. Discontinue the use of lipstick, creams or other beauty products in the affected area. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after touching the lesions, in order to reduce the risk of transmission of the infection. The contents should not be used after the expiry date, mentioned on the packing. Discontinue if rash appears. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
