Zovirax Drug Information
Zovirax Cream Overview
Zovirax Cream is used to treat "cold sores/fever blisters" (herpes labialis). It can speed up healing of the sores and decrease symptoms (such as tingling, pain, burning, itching). Acyclovir belongs to a class of medications known as antivirals. It works by stopping the growth of the virus. Zovirax Cream does not cure herpes, and it does not prevent passing the infection to someone else. It does not prevent a future occurrence.
How to Use Zovirax Cream
Read the Patient Information Leaflet available from your pharmacist. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions. Use Zovirax Cream at the first sign of infection (such as tingling, burning, redness). Wash your hands with soap and water before and after applying Zovirax Cream. Clean and dry the affected areas before applying the medication. Apply to the affected area and rub in gently, usually 5 times a day (every 3 to 4 hours) for 4 days for cold sores, or as directed by your doctor. Apply enough cream to cover all affected areas (red/tingling/burning areas, sores). Apply to skin only. Do not apply Zovirax Cream in the eyes or nose, inside the mouth, or inside the vagina. If you do get medication in those areas, flush with plenty of water. Dosage of Zovirax Cream is based on your medical condition, type of infection, and response to treatment. Do not use Zovirax Cream more often or for longer than prescribed. Use Zovirax Cream regularly to get the most benefit from it. Zovirax Cream works best when the amount of drug absorbed by the skin stays at a constant level. Therefore, use Zovirax Cream at evenly spaced intervals. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. To prevent washing off the medication, do not bathe, shower, or swim right after applying it. If applying to genital herpes sores, use a finger cot or rubber gloves to avoid spreading the infection. Do not apply other skin products (such as drugs, cosmetics, sun screens, or lip balms) unless told to do so by your doctor. Do not cover the area with plastic or waterproof bandages unless told to do so by your doctor. Cold sores (herpes) can spread easily. Acyclovir cream does not prevent the spread of herpes. Avoid close physical contact with others (such as kissing) during an outbreak until the cold sores have completely healed. Also, try not to touch the cold sore, and wash your hands if you do touch the cold sore. If you are using acyclovir for treatment of genital herpes, it is important to follow safe sex practices to reduce the risk of giving herpes to your partner, even if there are no symptoms present. Always use a condom made of latex or polyurethane. When you have symptoms or are experiencing an outbreak, do not have sexual contact with your partner. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens after treatment is finished.
Zovirax Cream Precautions
Before using acyclovir, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to valacyclovir; or if you have any other allergies. Zovirax Cream may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Zovirax Cream, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using Zovirax Cream. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Acyclovir may pass into breast milk in small amounts. However, the drug is unlikely to harm a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding. Avoid breastfeeding if you have herpes sores on or near your breast.
Zovirax Cream Misdose
If you miss a dose of Zovirax Cream, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
