Vectavir (Penciclvir 1%) Anti-Viral Treatment Cold Sore Cream 2g - Limit of 1 pack per customer




  • Effective anti-viral treatment for herpes.
  • Treats and speeds healing.

Vectavir is used for the treatment of cold sores (Herpes labialis). A cold sore is caused by a viral infection. The virus can remain inactive for extended periods of time, but when triggered the virus multiplies and a cold sore develops. This can occur, for example when you are run-down, when you have a cold or flu, or when you have been out in strong sunlight. The virus causes painful blistering of the lips.

Vectavir contains penciclovir and is an antiviral medicine which stops the virus multiplying. Applying Vectavir means your cold sore heals faster and the duration of pain will be shorter. The time your cold sore is infectious will also be shorter, although applying Vectavir will not stop you spreading your cold sores to another person.

You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 4 days.
