Adults and children 2 years of age and over:
BREAK TO RELEASE THE MEDICATION
Slide-off to remove the protective blue paper cover and slide it on the other end – opposite the white applicator tip.
Squeeze the vial firmly on the arrow shown on the protective blue paper cap until you hear it snap.
Hold with the white applicator tip down to allow the medication to saturate the tip.
Do not touch the white applicator tip with your fingers.
NUMB BEFORE RUBBING
To minimize pain during application gently touch the site of the cold sore with the saturated applicator tip.
Wait about 30 seconds to allow the pain reliever to numb the area. Numbing lasts several minutes.
Once the area is numb, rub the site of the cold sore and the surrounding area. Rub firmly to allow the treatment to deeply penetrate the skin.
On open sores – Start by rubbing the surrounding area. Then firmly press the applicator tip to the cold sore. Avoid scrubbing; this will further open the lesion.
It is recommended to use all the medication in the vial.
Recap the white applicator tip and dispose of immediately. Do not disassemble. Keep out of reach of children.
Children under 2 years of age: ask a dentist or physician.
Note: To treat most cold sores, multiple treatments may be required. Do not use more than 3 times per day. For best result ensure that lip area is free of lips preparations, lotions, ointments, residual beverages, or cosmetics, including lipstick.
