Buy Aciclovir Cream UK | What is Aciclovir Cream?

Buy Aciclovir Cream UK, Aciclovir cold sore cream is applied to the face and lips. It is an antiviral medication that contais the active ingredient aciclovir. The cream is smooth and an off-white colour and is applied in a thin layer over the affected area of the skin.

Antiviral medicines work by stopping a virus from growing and spreading.While they do not completely kill of the virus, they inhibit it, making it easier for your body to fight it off.

Aciclovir cold sore cream works on the herpes simplex virus to stop it spreading and promote healing. The herpes simplex virus can lay dormant in the body for a long time, so people who have outbreaks (like cold sores) often get them when they are feeling run down or tired, and these outbreaks can be a recurring problem.

How does Aciclovir Cream Work?

The antiviral agent aciclovir, prevents the herpes virus from multiplying in the tissues and nerve cells of the body.

Infected cells convert aciclovir to aciclovir triphosphate which inhibits an enzyme the virus uses to make copies of itself.

This allows the immune system to fight the virus into remission.

While aciclovir cream helps to improve the recovery time of a flare up, it doesn't prevent the spread of herpes.
