Some in vitro activity against cytomegalovirus has been demonstrated against herpes simplex virus (types 1 and 2) infections in animals. Penciclovir targets virus-infected cells where it is converted into a triphosphate (mediated via virus-induced thymidine kinase). This triphosphate persists in infected cells in excess of 12 hours and inhibits replication of viral DNA. In uninfected cells treated with penciclovir, concentrations of penciclovir triphosphate are only barely detectable. Accordingly, uninfected cells are unlikely to be affected by therapeutic concentrations of penciclovir.Indications:Fenivir cold sore cream is indicated for the treatment of cold sores.Fenivir cold sore cream shortens healing time, reduces lesion-associated pain and shortens the duration of viral shedding.Identification:A smooth white homogeneous cream.Presentation:2 g aluminium tube.Marketed by: Novartis Consumer Health SA A division of Novartis South Africa (Pty) Limited.Novartis.For full prescribing information please read the enclosed package insert.011 929 9111.

I have lived with cold sores all my life - that's 66 years. I would have a cold sore every 1-2 months. That's a big chunk of my life! I have consulted doctors and tried everything. The best I ever did was take acidophilus daily and reduce their frequency, but never totally. Well, I got the start of one two days ago and my son offered me Fenivir to try. It stopped it immediately. After 66 years, I finally have a solution to something that has interfered with all the important days of my life, including my high school graduation picture and my wedding day. Yes, I had cold sores both of those days! I can't believe there's a remedy and that I'd never heard of it. I am so happy.
Fenivir is the best remedy, stops a cold sore in its tracks, gone! Now that I have found Fenivir I will not use anything else...
