How is Vivicin different from other cold sore products?
Vivicin is fast acting, effective and safe. It relieves cold sore symptoms and soothes an outbreak within 24 hours, and aids cold sore healing.
Vivicin is made of 95% natural ingredients. Vivicin’s unique blend of botanicals and natural oils relieves pain, soothes burning, itching and tingling, and supports recovery.

How quickly can I expect to see results with Vivicin?
All people are different, and cold sores vary. Typically, when Vivicin is applied, pain eases in minutes, and other cold sore symptoms improve within 24 hours. Healing often depends on when Vivicin is applied—the sooner the better—and that is true of any treatment.

When should I use Vivicin?

What if I miss a dose?
Apply a dose as soon as you remember and then reapply the next dose on schedule.
How should I apply Vivicin?
Apply Vivicin five times a day for 10 days or until the cold sore has healed. For best results, clean the area first, and apply with a Q-tip or with fingers. (Wash hands before and after applying the cream.) Use an ample amount to completely cover the sore and the area around it.
How often can I reapply?
Vivicin should be applied 5 times per day (approximately every 3-4 hours) during waking hours until the cold sore is healed. You can also reapply the cream more often if you experience pain, burning or itching.

Who can use it? Is it safe?
Vivicin is made of natural ingredients and is safe for adults and children over 12.
Can I share my Vivicin cream with others?
Because cold sores are contagious, you won't want to share your tube of Vivicin with others. Doing so may spread the infection.
Can I use Vivicin longer than 10 days?
Vivicin is safe to use for more than 10 days or on a regular basis. However, if your cold sore has not healed in 10 days, it could be the sign of a more serious infection. Contact your health care professional for advice.
Can I apply cosmetics or sunscreen on top of it?
Yes. Cosmetics, such as lipstick, may be applied over Vivicin. Do use a separate applicator, like a cotton swab, to apply makeup or sunscreen over an unhealed cold sore to avoid spreading the infection.
Can I use it with other lip products such as Blistex®?
Yes, other lip balms will not change the effectiveness of Vivicin. Vivicin contains precious oils that soothe and moisturize the cold sore and surrounding skin.
How soon can I eat or drink after applying Vivicin?
For best results, apply Vivicin after eating, drinking or brushing your teeth.
Can I use it if I am pregnant or breast-feeding?
Testing has not been conducted with Vivicin on pregnant or breast-feeding women. Consult your physician.
Do I need to get medical help if I swallow the product?
Yes; this is precautionary advice in the event that someone swallows a large amount of the tube contents. If in doubt, always ask your physician's advice.
What happens if I get some Vivicin in my mouth?
Small amounts inside the mouth should not be a problem. However, if you accidentally squirt a large amount of cream into your mouth, then remove the cream and rinse out your mouth with water.
Why can't I apply Vivicin on areas inside my mouth or nose?
Mucous membranes inside the mouth and nose are very sensitive and you could experience some irritation of the membranes. It is not recommended that you use Vivicin inside the nose or mouth.
What if I get some Vivicin on the skin around the sore?
Vivicin is made of natural ingredients and is safe to apply on both normal skin and cold sores. If you have a history of getting multiple cold sores simultaneously, you can apply Vivicin to the area around your lips to ensure that other areas that are still developing will be treated in their earliest stages.
