Only Zovirax antiviral cream contains MAC-P®, an absorption accelerant which helps the cream penetrate up to 5 x faster* so the antiviral (aciclovir) can reach the site of the infection more quickly.Zovirax Cream delivers the antiviral active ingredient, aciclovir, in a special formulation containing MAC-P. MAC-P is an absorption accelerator that allows the active ingredient to penetrate the skin up to 5 x faster* to get to the area where the virus is reproducing. Once it reaches this area the active ingredient springs into action – making it difficult for the virus to reproduce itself. When that happens, your body's natural defences can get to work and help to heal the cold sore. The cream also contains ingredients which help moisturise deep within the skin to soothe and protect.
It's best to start treatment with Zovirax antiviral cream as soon as you feel the tingle, so Zovirax antiviral cream can help stop the virus replication. However, the antiviral properties of Zovirax cream means it is also effective at the blister phase - helping to speed healing compared to no treatment.
