It’s best to apply Cymex Ultra to cold sores as soon as possible, preferably at the first sign of their arrival but treatment can be started later if necessary.
Apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area five times a day at approximately four hourly intervals, to help get your lips back into tip-top shape with our cold sore treatment. Continue for at least 4 days.
If your skin infection does not get better after 10 days of treatment tell your doctor as soon as possible.
