Yes; you will need a prescription for both. There is no Anti-Fungal OTC medication available.

Yes in the USA both are by prescription only.If you have a regular doctor you might be able to give them a call and see if you can get some without going in Just for the record this is not a anti fungal you never use a anti fungal on a cold sore this is an antiviral from drugs.com (((Acyclovir is an antiviral drug. It slows the growth and spread of the herpes virus in the body. It will not cure herpes, but it can lessen the symptoms of the infection. Acyclovir is used to treat infections caused by herpes viruses, such as genital herpes, cold sores, shingles, and chicken pox Best of luck to you Chuck1957
