Xerese (acyclovir and hydrocortisone) is a prescription medicine used in people ages 12 and older to lessen the chance of a cold sore becoming worse (ulcerating). Xerese is not a cure for cold sores. It is not known if Xerese is safe or works in children younger than 12 years old. Acyclovir helps stop the virus from replicating, which stops the infection and hydrocortisone reduces the inflammation, which helps the healing. Use Xerese exactly as directed by your doctor. Use Xerese early, at the first sign of a cold sore (e.g. itching, burning, tingling or redness) In case of accidental contact with the eyes or the inside of the nose or mouth, rinse thoroughly with water. To avoid spreading the infection, do not share this medicine. Wash your hands before and after using Xerese. Clean and dry the skin before applying Xerese. Spread a thin layer of Xerese on the affected area. Do not rub the cold sore because it may spread to other areas around your mouth, or make your cold sore worse. Do not cover the cold sore or area around the cold sore with a bandage. Do not use other skin products (such as make-up, sun screen or lip balm) or other skin medicine on the cold sore or area around the cold sore. Avoid unnecessary rubbing of the affected area to avoid aggravating or transferring the infection.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common side effects may include drying or flaking of the skin, tingling or burning, redness of the skin, changes in your skin color where the cream is applied (pigmentation changes), swelling, bitter taste after you apply Xerese. The serious side effects include:
