Soon a new one drug completely natural could cure thecold sores. The new freeze, baptized CS20 and produced by a French research team from the Hôpital L'Archet in Nice, it promises to defeat the infection caused by the infamous Herpes simplex 1 virus, but not to prevent relapses.

“With the CS20 the overall score improved already after the first day of local application, while with the comparison antiviral it took a good week. The burning subsided after a couple of days with both the gel and acyclovir, but the intensity of the effect was more marked with the former. The same was true of pain. Skin changes also regressed more rapidly " has explained Jean-Paul Ortonne, dermatologist at Hôpital L'Archet in Nice.
