A clinical study in 1443 people with cold sores showed that Xerese cream, when used 5 times a day for 5 days beginning at the first sign of a cold sore:
- Reduced the likelihood of a cold sore getting worse (where the blisters break) vs. placebo
- Reduced healing time by 1.6 days vs. placebo
- Reduced the size of the cold sore vs. placebo
- Reduced symptoms such as tenderness vs. placebo
XERESE is for cold sores on lips and around the mouth only and should not be used in eyes, mouth, nose or on genitals. Use exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.
It is important to remember that Xerese is not a cure – there is no cure for cold sores. But, it can help treat the symptoms, reduce severity and speed healing time in some patients.
