Stop Their Pain

With 7.5% Benzocaine, Viroxyn Professional Use stops cold sore pain almost instantly, making the application of the cold sore killing medicine easy, fast and painless.  This increased numbing effect is ideal for dental professionals who want to directly apply the medicine to their patients themselves as a prophylactic, or allow their patients to purchase the product for use when an outbreak occurs at home.

Speed Their Healing

Viroxyn Professional Use is clinically proven to speed the healing process. If untreated, a cold sore will usually heal in about 10–12 days. Most over-the-counter cold sore treatments will speed healing slightly, allowing the cold sore to heal in 9–10 days — not much of a difference for something as painful and unsightly as a cold sore.  But Viroxyn Professional Use reduces healing time to only three days, if used properly.

Don’t Touch the Cold Sore

Viroxyn Professional Use comes with a patented single-use brush applicator that delivers the medicine directly to the affected area. By keeping patients from touching the cold sore during treatment, it reduces the chance of spreading the virus.

Cold sores are extremely contagious from person to person. Some other conditions resulting from making contact with a cold sore outbreak include Whitlow, Encephalitis and Keratitis.

Whitlow

Whitlow (caused by the cold sore virus) is an extremely painful infection that affects the hand and involves one or more fingers. 60% of all Whitlow cases are caused by cold sores, since touching a cold sore can easily transfer the virus to the fingers and hand. Identified as a specific danger to health care workers, more extreme cases result in disabling pain in the fingers and fingertips, making it a career-endangering infection for dentists and dental care workers.

Encephalitis

Encephalitis is an acute inflammation of the brain, usually caused by viral infections. Although very rare, cold sore virus encephalitis occurs most often in infants in their first year, with the elderly also having a higher incidence of infection than a younger population. Advanced symptoms include seizures or convulsions, tremors, and hallucinations, and memory problems. Encephalitis caused by cold sores is the leading cause of the most severe cases for all ages, including newborns.

Keratitis

Keratitis (caused by the cold sore virus) is a viral infection of the eye, caused by an  infection in the cornea. The infection can easily be transferred from a cold sore to the eye through touch. Keratitis is considered the most common cause of non-impact cornea-derived blindness in developed nations, with 1.5 million new cases each year – 40,000 of them resulting in the loss of sight in one or both eyes.
