Description of Zovirax Cream

Zovirax Cream is an antiviral medicine, and its active ingredient is Acyclovir. It is available in the form of a topical cream. This medicine is available in only one strength, that is Zovirax Cream 5%, and you can buy it in 2gm and 5gm tubes.

Indications & Dosage of Zovirax Cream

Your doctor will recommend you to buy Zovirax Cream for treating cold sores of the lips or face caused by the herpes virus, or conditions such as chicken pox, shingles, genital herpes or outbreaks. It works by stopping the replication of the virus. Although Zovirax Cream does not cure the infection, it reduces the severity of the outbreak. Due to this, the sores heal quicker, new sores are prevented from forming, and pain or itching is decreased. After using this drug, the infection also does not spread to other parts of the patient’s body.

Before applying Zovirax Cream, wash the area and your hands properly and let them dry completely. Apply Zovirax Cream 5% on your skin and rub it in until the cream disappears. Do not wrap the area or use a bandage until advised by your doctor. Also do not swim, take a shower, or a bath immediately after applying the medicine.

Complete the course of treatment even if your symptoms wane before the stipulated duration. The infection may come back if you stop using Zovirax Cream before the full course.

Side Effects & Interactions of Zovirax Cream

Stinging or burning, cracked or dry lips, itching, dryness or flakiness of the skin may surface after applying Zovirax Cream. Although these are mild side effects of the drug, you should notify your doctor if any of these worsen or persist.

  • Dizziness or drowsiness
  • Trouble speaking
  • Shakiness or unsteadiness
  • Mental or mood changes such as confusion, agitation or hallucinations
