Treat your cold sores

Great for: If you get cold sores then preventative/’suppression’ cold sore treatment can reduce how frequently you get them and you need to select between the 2 anti-viral medicines we prescribe. Daily treatment can also reduce how long a cold sore lasts if you do end up getting one.

What's prescribed: Valtrex (valacyclovir) or acyclovir as well as counseling about symptom relief and future cold sore prevention.

What's required: Answer a brief medical questionnaire. For prescriptions, you will be asked for a copy of a photo ID and a selfie so that your provider can verify who they are treating. Personal health information provided, including images, are protected by the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule.
