The active triphosphate is also incorporated into the herpes virus DNA. Normal cellular processes are not affected.

Dosage and directions for use: Adults and children: Apply 5-6 times daily at four-hourly intervals. Therapy should be initiated as soon as possible following the onset of signs and symptoms of herpes simplex infection. This is particularly important in the treatment of recurrent episodes. Treatment should be continued for 5 days. If healing has not occurred, the treatment may be prolonged for up to 10 days. Cover all lesions adequately. Do not exceed the recommended dose. Use a finger cot or a rubber glove to prevent auto inoculation.
Having suffered with cold sores since the age of 7 I can tell you from experience: There is no solution to get rid of a cold sore in a day. However, this is the quickest solution. I always keep one handy in my car. Day 1 blister appears, I apply every 45 mins. It dries it out while also providing moisture and pain relief. Day 2 in the morning is always the biggest it gets. Keep applying, by lunch time I can hardly feel it. Day 3-5, keep applying, no pain and reach complete healing. Dont use other moisturisers as the scab takes longer to go away. Be careful when drying your face after showering as you can re-open the wound.
This stuff works. I got an outbreak out of nowhere. The 1st since childhood. It cleared my sores in 48hrs.
