Table of contents:

Zilactin Early Relief Cold Sore Gel is a topical medication that is used to treat cold sores or fever blisters. The gel contains benzyl alcohol as the active ingredient, which is known to have antiviral and pain-relieving properties.

When applied to the affected area, the bioadhesive gel sticks to the lining of the mouth, forming a protective barrier. This film-like barrier helps to shield the sore from irritants and prevent further infection.

The gel provides immediate relief from pain and itching associated with cold sores. The benzyl alcohol present in the medication also helps to promote faster healing by drying out the sore. Overall, Zilactin Early Relief Cold Sore Gel provides a dual action that helps to promote healing and reduce pain associated with cold sores.

Use and Dosage

Zilactin Early Relief Cold Sore Gel is applied up to four times daily after drying the affected area. Here is a general guide on how to use Zilactin Early Relief Cold Sore Gel:
