What is  Xerese?

Xerese is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bausch Health US, LLC. It is an antiviral treatment containing acyclovir, a herpes simplex virus deoxynucleoside analog DNA polymerase inhibitor, and hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid. It is used for the early treatment of recurrent herpes labialis (cold sores) to reduce the risk of ulcerative cold sores and to reduce the lesion healing time in adults and children (6 years of age and older).

What doses of  Xerese are available?

Xerese is available in cream form, in the following doses: 5% w/w acyclovir and 1% w/w hydrocortisone.

Apply Xerese 5 times per day for 5 days to the affected area. Start treatment as early as possible after the first signs and symptoms of lesions. Do not use make-up, sunscreen, lip balm, or other skin medicine on the cold sore or on the area around the cold sore.

Please read the patient information and drug information provided and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
