How do I use SimpleHealth’s Prescription Cold Sore Kit? How effective is it?

Last updated on December 8, 2020

Our prescription cold sore treatment, valacyclovir, should be taken as it was prescribed to you, your doctor will explain your treatment plan/directions and dosing. For the most effective use, start taking it at the first signs of an outbreak (including tingling, burning, and blisters). The sooner you take valacyclovir at the beginning of an outbreak, the more effective it will be at reducing the appearance of sores/blisters, decreasing healing time, and alleviating the uncomfortable symptoms.

While there is no cure for cold sores, valacyclovir has shown to be effective at relieving the painful symptoms of an outbreak.
