Recommended by Our Medical Team

“I recommend that anybody who experiences oral herpes, aka cold sores, keeps this product on hand because it is most effective when used at the very first sign of an outbreak, and continued until blisters have healed. Docosanol is a topical antiviral cream that has been shown to shorten the duration and lessen the pain of a herpes outbreak.”
