Aciclovir 5% Cream

Aciclovir 5% Cream is a treatment for genital herpes and cold sores that can accelerate the healing process once the herpes or cold sore has appeared. The active ingredient is aciclovir, an antiviral agent that has been shown to be effective in treating infections caused by the herpes simplex virus.
It is important to start treatment as soon as possible. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure how to use this medicine.

Adults and the elderly:
  • Wash your hands before and after applying the cream. This will prevent your cold sore or genital herpes from getting worse or spreading, or you infecting someone else.
  • Apply the cream to the affected area 5 times daily (about every four hours) for 5 days.
  • If your cold sore or genital herpes has not healed after five days of treatment you can continue using the cream for another five days.
  • Active Ingredient: Aciclovir 5%.
  • Other Ingredients: Propylene Glycol, White Soft Paraffin, Liquid Paraffin, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimeticone, Stearoyl Macrogolglycerides and Purified Water.
  • Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. This is especially important if you are taking probenecid (used for gout).
  • As with all medicines, Aciclovir cream should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding, unless you are advised to do so by your doctor. Ask you doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
  • Propylene glycol and cetyl alcohol may cause skin irriation (e.g. contact dermatitis).
Do not use Aciclovir 5% Cream:
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to aciclovir, valaciclovir or any of the other ingredients of Aciclovir cream.
  • In the eyes, inside the mouth or genitals.
Check with your doctor or pharmacist before using Aciclovir 5% Cream if:
  • Your immune system is not working properly (for instance you have had a bone marrow transplant or you have AIDS).
