Xerese Cream (Acyclovir/Hydrocortisone)
Xerese Cream (Acyclovir and Hydrocortisone) is a topical that is used to treat cold sores in people who are at least 12 years old. Acyclovir is an antiviral drug that works by slowing down the growth and spread of the herpes virus so that the body can fight off the infection. Hydrocortisone is a topical steroid. It works by reducing the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling. This medication does not cure or prevent cold sores caused by herpes, but it can reduce the symptoms of the infection.
The brand Xerese is manufactured in Canada by Valeant Pharma. Xerese is available in 5 %/1 %/5 gm cream.
Common side effects include:
• Bitter taste in your mouth after applying the medicine;
• Dryness or flaking of the skin;
• Mild burning or tingling;
• Skin redness or discoloration
Stop using this medication and contact your doctor immediately if you have severe burning, stinging or irritation of treated skin.
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to acyclovir (Zovirax) or hydrocortisone. Before you start using this medication, inform your doctor if you have a weak immune system (caused by disease or using certain medicines) or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. This medication should not be used on children younger than 12 years old. Herpes infections are contagious, even while you are being treated with acyclovir and hydrocortisone topical. Avoid letting infected areas come into contact with other people.
