I have several cold sores on my lip at the moment and don't seem to be getting any relief from zovirax. They have blistered now.

I remember hearing about another product to use (but not sure where or when!). Can anyone help. It is so uncomfortable.

I find Fenestril much better than Zovirax.

Just checked the tube, actual name is Fenistil.

I recently started using the patches instead of cream. I think that they heal faster and it feels a bit more hygenic.
