Many people are familiar with the problem: cold sores usually come when you least need them. Although these slightly painful and itchy blisters do not usually pose a major health risk, they can sometimes affect people psychologically. Some people don't even want to leave the house because of cold sores. These cold sores, which are caused by herpes viruses, usually heal on their own within a few days anyway – but with the help of Aciclovir, they heal even faster. It is rare to be bothered by cold sores for longer than four days when using the medication.
It is worth trying this medicine because it can help your body to heal the cold sores with its own immune system and helps with your well-being. The course of the disease is significantly reduced in its duration by the medicine. Other viral infections can also be treated with this medicine: shingles, encephalitis due to herpes infection and chickenpox are among them.
