Herpotherm®

Herpotherm® is a simple and quick to use patented medical device that can normally prevent the development of cold sore blisters if applied early enough. If applied later, the severity of symptoms may be lessened, or they may fade sooner.

This innovative product offers drug and chemical free relief from the symptoms that accompany cold sores including itching, burning, tingling and tightness, making it suitable for most people including pregnant women, allergy sufferers and children. It works by issuing a brief, concentrated application of heat (local hyperthermia) to a small, limited area of skin, just sufficient to to activate various physiological processes at the treated site without damaging the skin. It has been dermatologically tested.

Herpotherm® is supplied with 1 x Ultra CR2 3V battery (replaceable).

Directions

Children under 12 years of age should be supervised/assisted in using HERPOtherm®.

  • Remove the protective cap from the device.
  • Place the ceramic contact plate of the device onto the affected skin area and gently press it against the skin.
  • Press the button and the ceramic contact plate will heat up to a temperature of around 51°C. Once this temperature is reached, a LED will light up. The LED will go off once the device automatically shuts down after 3 seconds of use. At the start of the heating-up phase and at the end of treatment, you will hear an additional acoustic signal.
  • Place the protective cap on the device.
  • For persistent or recurrent symptoms, multiple treatment of the same skin site is possible.
  • Please leave a treatment interval of at least 2 minutes between each application.
  • Do not exceed a maximum number of 5 applications per hour on the same skin area.
