A well-intentioned kiss can transfer the virus to another individual. Children are highly at risk.

- Do not touch your eyes
- Do not touch your genitals or other parts of the body. It is possible to transfer the virus to other parts of the body (autoinoculation).
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
1. CLEAN IT
Prior to treatment, clean the area to be treated preferably with a washcloth and warm water. A dry wipe may be sufficient. Do not use soap or other cleansers.
2. BREAK IT
Remove paper cap from vial, exposing applicator tip.
Replace cap on other end of vial, leaving applicator tip exposed.
Firmly pinch center of vial, close to edge of paper cap, until inner ampoule breaks.
Hold with the white applicator tip down, allowing medication to saturate the applicator.
If necessary: pinch vial gently until a drop of medication appears.
3. RUB IT
The key is to rub on the sore and the surrounding area. Gently dabbing is not effective.
Do not rub so hard that you cause damage to the skin.
Keep the applicator saturated at all times. If necessary, pause and hold the vial to allow more medication to flow into the applicator tip.
Use all the medication in the vial.
Dispose of when finished, recap the vial and dispose of immediately. Do not disassemble; keep out of reach of children.

CVS/Pharmacy single application cold sore treatment uses a patented new approach to treating cold sores - rubbing the cold sore with the applicator tip delivers the germicidal medicine directly to the site of the infection.
Cold Sores and Fever Blisters are both caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (typically HSV-1) and are just different popular names for the HSV-caused lesions.
Occasionally an additional treatment may be required. In some people, a lesion may appear to start healing and recur a day or more later. This will require an additional treatment.
