1. What HERPESIN CREAM is and what it is used for 
The active substance in HERPESIN CREAM is aciclovir. Aciklovir is a substance that significantly prevents the propagation of Herpes simplex virus (I and II) and Varicella zoster in the human organism. 
After penetration into the virus-infected cell, aciclovir is gradually converted to aciclovir triphosphate. It is a proprietary drug that preferentially suppresses the enzymatic processes of the virus. 

HERPESIN CREAM is used in the treatment of lips and face haze in adults and children. 

  • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to aciclovir, valaciclovir, propylene glycol or any of the other ingredients of HERPESIN CREAM
  • the preparation should not be applied to mucous membranes (eg oral cavity, eye, scab), as local irritation may occur.
Take special care with HERPESIN CREAM:
HERPESIN CREAM is intended for external use in the treatment of lips or other parts of the face except for the eye and conjunctival sac. In case of unintended application of the cream to the eye, rinse with eye water or lukewarm water. If you have any other problems, ask for medical treatment. The cream is not intended for treatment in the oral cavity. If oral cream enters the mouth, it may cause irritation of the oral mucosa, but in this case no further action is required. Do not exceed the prescribed dose. If the disability is wider, the doctor recommends the most appropriate treatment.
Hives are portable, so avoid direct contact of the disease with people (eg when kissing) or with things of common use (towel, etc.). Do not touch other parts of your body, especially eyes, until you properly shake hands after applying the cream. 
In patients with severe immune disorders, eg in HIV-positive patients or bone marrow transplant patients, the use of aciclovir tablets should be considered. Any infection should be treated by a doctor. 

Interaction with other medicinal products
Mutual adverse effects of aciclovir in the form of cream with other medicinal products are not yet known.
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

The use of the product during pregnancy and lactation should always be decided by a doctor.

3. How to use HERPESIN CREAM
Always take HERPESIN CREAM exactly as your doctor has told you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. 

Children and adults
In order to best effect the treatment, it is important to start it immediately as soon as the first symptoms appear, ie the feeling of tension, burning or sneezing in the places where the hay is sown. Already apply a small amount of HERPESIN CREAM to the affected site 5 times a day at 4 hour intervals with the omission of the night dose. Healing usually takes place very quickly, but keep applying the cream for at least 3 days after healing.

When applying the cream to the affected area then it is necessary to wash your hands. Thus, worsening or transmission of the infection to another site is ruled out. 

If you do not get healed after 10 days, consult a doctor. 

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
