I started to get a cold sore around 2 days ago and without thinking used Zovirax! Now am worrying as google says not to! Has anyone used it and should I be worried?

I am sure everything will be fine. It's not as if you were eating the stuff

I used it 4 times when I was pregnant as I get hormonal cold sores until it occurred to me to check it was safe. blush

Anyway DS is 6 weeks old, giant and perfectly healthy

You're safe to use it so don't worry. I work in a pharmacy smile

Ah thankyou! Didnt even think!

Most things say don't use as they simply haven't been tested - its a little unethical to test things on pregnant women! I'm glad you've found out its safe to use
