What is Fenistil Cold Sore Cream?

Fenistil Cold Sore Cream is a treatment for cold sores which helps to relieve pain and itching caused by the infection. If you suffer from cold sores and are looking for a treatment which works as soon as a cold sore appears, Fenistil Cold Sore Cream is the product for you.


What are cold sores?

Cold sores look like small, fluid-filled blisters which can appear anywhere on your face but commonly appear around the mouth and on the lips. People who have cold sores will find that they keep coming back, as cold sores are caused by a virus which stays in your skin for the rest of your life. If you have a cold sore, you may find that it feels itchy, tingly, or causes a burning sensation before the blister appears.


How will this product treat my cold sores?

Fenistil Cold Sore Cream uses the active ingredients penciclovir, an antiviral treatment which helps to treat infections caused by viruses, such as cold sores. It helps to relieve pain and itching caused by cold sores, being more effective the earlier you apply it to a developing cold sore.


How to use Fenistil Cold Sore Cream.

Start using Fenistil Cold Sore Cream as soon as you notice signs of a cold sore, such as tingling, redness, or itching. Apply a thin layer of cream over the cold sore every 2 hours. Continue treatment for 4 days. Always wash your hands before and after applying Fenistil Cold Sore Cream.
