About Cold Sores

Cold sores are caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), which is spread by skin to skin contact. About 1 in 5 people have cold sores that flare up from time to time. They usually get better without treatment in 7-10 days, though antiviral creams or tablets may help to reduce the severity of symptoms.  These medications are most effective the sooner they are started after symptoms develop.

Oral antiviral tablets can be taken for recurring bouts of cold sores.  This treatment may reduce pain and the time it takes for the crusts to disappear, though not necessarily the time to complete healing.

Qoctor can guide you safely through getting treatment for your cold sores. You can choose to have a paper prescription sent to your home, workplace or  local pharmacy. Or for added convenience, order your medication online- Qoctor can send it to you via express delivery, wherever you are in Australia!
