Clean and dry the affected areas before applying the medication.

Apply enough cream to cover all affected areas (red/tingling/burning areas, sores).

Use Zovirax (Acyclovir) 5% regularly to get the most benefit from it. Zovirax (Acyclovir) 5% works best when the amount of drug absorbed by the skin stays at a constant level. Therefore, use Zovirax (Acyclovir) 5% at evenly spaced intervals. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.
