I have to do with cold sores again and again and unfortunately get it just thinking about something disgusting. I have used many creams for herpes before and they never worked. Then I came across the Zovirax cream. The promises of the cream persuaded me to buy it, even if I was a little skeptical that it would work. After comparing the prices at Compharms, I found the best deal for me and ordered the product. The cream was delivered to me quickly and was well packaged. I have used Zovirax Cream as directed and am delighted. No herpes blisters and no herpes. Absolutely wonderful effect.
