Is Zovirax ophthalmic ointment safe to apply on mouth sores?
a doctor prescribed to a 9 month old baby and i am wondering how it will be possible? Asked by Shenna Nikas 1 year ago.

What Zovirax ophthalmic ointment is used for Zovirax ophthalmic ointment is used for the treatment of herpes simplex virus infections of the eye. Aciclovir (the active ingredient in Zovirax ophthalmic ointment) belongs to a group of medicines called "anti-virals". Zovirax ophthalmic ointment works by stopping the production of the herpes simplex virus. If it gets rid of the herpes simplex virus which is pretty much what cold sores are then I would think they would be ok for mouth sores. This is a cream for the eyes so it's got to be gentle.

How long does it take for zovirax to clear up a cold sore ?
I went to my doctor and he prescribed me this ointment for two cold sores that I have on each side of my mouth....I was just wondering how long it was going to take for me to see results :( Asked by Woodrow Sobba 1 year ago.

zovirax ointment won't clear them immediately, it shortens the healing time though. I'd say from the time they appeared to cleared up would be 5 or so days. I get them too if I'm in the sun, I find that Abreva (over the counter med) heals them faster than zovirax, just my opinion! Also you can take an oral medicine called Valtrex that helps clear them faster. Answered by Mechelle Dickhoff 1 year ago.

Is Zovirax ophthalmic ointment safe to apply on mouth sores?
a doctor prescribed to a 9 month old baby and i am wondering how it will be possible? Asked by Theresia Koroch 1 year ago.

What Zovirax ophthalmic ointment is used for Zovirax ophthalmic ointment is used for the treatment of herpes simplex virus infections of the eye. Aciclovir (the active ingredient in Zovirax ophthalmic ointment) belongs to a group of medicines called "anti-virals". Zovirax ophthalmic ointment works by stopping the production of the herpes simplex virus. If it gets rid of the herpes simplex virus which is pretty much what cold sores are then I would think they would be ok for mouth sores. This is a cream for the eyes so it's got to be gentle.

How long does it take for zovirax to clear up a cold sore ?
I went to my doctor and he prescribed me this ointment for two cold sores that I have on each side of my mouth....I was just wondering how long it was going to take for me to see results :( Asked by Dwayne Bivings 1 year ago.

zovirax ointment won't clear them immediately, it shortens the healing time though. I'd say from the time they appeared to cleared up would be 5 or so days. I get them too if I'm in the sun, I find that Abreva (over the counter med) heals them faster than zovirax, just my opinion! Also you can take an oral medicine called Valtrex that helps clear them faster. Answered by Yuri Tiehen 1 year ago.
