Your treatment options

from $1.13/dose

Prescription cold sore medication

Antiviral medicines

Antiviral medicines help to stop the herpes virus from multiplying. They can be taken during an existing outbreak or continuously to reduce the chance of repeat outbreaks.

Episodic treatment

Episodic treatment involves starting a course of antiviral tablets as soon as you notice symptoms of an outbreak. This type of treatment is often the preferred treatment for people who don’t have outbreaks very often.

Suppressive treatments

Suppressive treatment involves taking medication on a daily basis to reduce the chance of an outbreak. This treatment reduces the amount of virus that is shed, both when sores are present and in between outbreaks

Cold Sore FAQs

Am I guaranteed a prescription for cold sore treatment?

Our clinicians provide the highest standard of healthcare, which means that each patient is assessed on an individual basis. If the doctor determines that it is not safe for you to be prescribed a treatment for cold sores or that your symptoms appear different to a standard cold sore, they may recommend that you visit another GP in person to be further assessed.

What are the symptons of a cold sore?

There are usually several stages to a cold sore. Firstly, tingling and itching around the lips for a day or so before a small hard spot appears and blisters erupt. The second stage is small-fluid filled blisters which typically erupt along the border of your lips. Finally these small blisters may merge and then burst, leaving shallow open sores that ooze and crust over.

How long until a clinician responds?

A clinician will review your assessment and respond within 24 hours. In most cases it will be much sooner than this.

How much does the consultation cost?

Stagger consultations have a one-off cost of $35.
