Cymex cream for cold sores
Cymex is a cold sore treatment cream which helps to relieve pain, itching and irritation caused by cold sores.
Cymex contains three active ingredients which make up its unique triple-action formula. These ingredients are: Urea, Cetrimide & Dimethicone. These ingredients work together to soothe irritation caused by cold sores while keeping the infection from spreading. It also helps to promote healing, so your cold sore will vanish more quickly.
Cymex Ultra Cream contains the active ingredient Aciclovir 5%, which if used at the tingling stage, can stop the progress of cold sores or limit the severity of the attack and speed up healing. It may also help to speed up the healing process of an already formed cold sore. Aciclovir 5% is an antiviral agent that has been shown to be effective in treating infections caused by the herpes simplex virus, such as cold sores and genital herpes. Aciclovir works by slowing down the growth of the herpes simplex virus, and speeds the healing of cold sore blisters.
