It's proven to be an effective option for the treatment of infections caused by the herpes virus. As an anti viral medication, this drug restricts the replication ability of the herpes virus. This restricts the spread of the virus to a particular part of the body. This is when the immune system of your body takes over, helping you fight back the virus and treating the sores effectively and quickly.
Denavir is available in the form of a cream in a 1.5gm tube. This mixture contains 1% dosage of peniciclovir. The mixture of this cream also contains non-active ingredients including cetostearyl alcohol, scetomacrogol 1000 BP, mineral oil, propylene glycol, purified water and white petrolatum.
