Many people with cold sores turn to Denavir, a cream known to prevent breakouts. Cold sores can be caused by the herpes simplex virus and once a person has it stays in their body for the rest of their life. Sometimes it’s what’s called “latent” which means that it’s not active and not causing symptoms or cold sores.
According to Denavir’s official website, “In clinical studies, the most common adverse reaction with was headache, which occurred in 5.3% of patients who used Denavir and 5.8% of patients who received placebo. Other adverse reactions occurred in less than 2% of patients and included application site reaction, decreased sensitivity to touch/local anesthesia, taste perversion, and rash.”
For Bennish the cream does calm her breakouts. “It really is an ugly sight,” she said. “This little cluster of bumps breaks open near my lip and it then as it heals it gets really tender but Denavir really helps.”
The cream goes on clear and has been proven to reduce the pain and duration of cold sores. It is applied at the first sign of a cold sore, which is usually a tingling feeling and should be reapplied every two hours for four days.
