Aciclovir 5% Cream - 2g - 3 Pack Reviews

Worked well - I'd order again if needed.

Cheap considering it has the same ingredients as "premium" brands. 1/2 price.

I've not as yet put this to the test but as someone who occasionally will get a lip cold sore, I know that speed is of the essence when starting the treatment-so I need to have stock! I used to buy Cymex Ultra which was excellent but sadly doesn't seem to be available any more, This treatment has the same strength of the active ingredient(Aciclovir 5%), so in theory, should act the same.

Great value substitute for Zovirax or more well branded creams at 6-7 pounds per tube. This is just as good

Good value pack. Cheaper than branded
