1. What ACICLOVIR SIROMED is and what it is used for
Aciclovir SIROMED is an anti-viral agent.
Aciclovir SIROMED is used
for frequently recurring herpes on facial skin and lips.
Early treatment with Aciclovir SIROMED cream can prevent the full breakout of herpes. If herpes has already developed on the skin, using aciclovir cream can accelerate the healing process.
2. What you need to know before you use ACICLOVIR SIROMED Do not use Aciclovir SIROMED:
- if you are allergic to aciclovir, valaciclovir, or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
- to prevent local irritation, Aciclovir SIROMED should not be applied onto mucous membranes (e.g. mouth, vaginal mucous membrane, or the eye).
Warnings and precautions
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Acyclsotad. If you have severe immunodeficiency (i.e. you have severe immune system damage), be sure to talk to your doctor before initiating treatment.
Other medicines and Aciclovir SIROMED
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.
No interactions with other medicines have currently been reported.
Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
Limited experience with using aciclovir tablets during pregnancy has shown no aciclovir-related effects on pregnancy or the health of the foetus/newborn. Aciclovir SIROMED can be used during pregnancy only after carefully evaluating the risks and benefits.
The amount of aciclovir absorbed into the organism after external use on healthy skin is negligible. Thus, if the mother has used Aciclovir SIROMED, the amount passed on to the baby while breast-feeding is low. If Aciclovir SIROMED is used while breast-feeding, care should be taken to prevent the baby from getting into contact with the treated areas.
Driving and using machines
No effects on the ability to drive or use machines have been reported.
Aciclovir SIROMED contains cetyl alcohol and propylene glycol.
Cetyl alcohol may cause local skin irritation (so-called contact dermatitis).
Propylene glycol may cause skin irritation.
3. How to use ACICLOVIR SIROMED
Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
The recommended dose is:
Apply a thin layer of cream onto the infected skin area 5 times a day, every 4 hours.
Instructions of use
Use a cotton bud to take enough cream to cover the infected area/areas. When applying Aciclovir SIROMED, make sure to cover not only areas with visible symptoms of a herpes infection (blisters, swelling, redness), but also the surrounding areas. In case you use your hand(s) to apply Aciclovir SIROMED, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly both before and after applying the cream to prevent the infection from spreading to the damaged areas of skin (e.g. by bacteria or other micro organisms), as well as to other uninfected mucous membranes or areas of skin.
For the best treatment results, treatment with Aciclovir SIROMED should begin as early as possible, i.e. as soon as you see the first signs of herpes (burning sensation, itchiness, discomfort, redness). If the blisters have already scabbed or healed, antiviral treatment with Aciclovir SIROMED will no longer have any effect.
Duration of use
The treatment usually lasts for 5 days, but the duration may vary in different individuals and the treatment may continue until the blisters have scabbed or completely healed. However, the treament should not last for longer than 10 days.
If you feel that the effect of Aciclovir SIROMED is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
If you forget to use Aciclovir SIROMED
If you are unable to treat the herpes in time, do so at the first opportunity and continue the treatment as before (do not apply the cream more frequently or in a thicker layer than usual).
If you stop using Aciclovir SIROMED
To ensure a successful treatment, it is important to use Aciclovir SIROMED for a sufficiently long period of time (see section: “How to use Aciclovir SIROMED”).
If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Uncommon: Aciclovir SIROMED can cause temporary burning or prickling sensation in the treated area of skin. Occasionally, redness, dryness, and flakiness of the skin treated with Aciclovir SIROMED has been observed.
Rare: redness, allergic skin reactions (contact dermatitis). In most cases when allergological testing was carried out, the skin reaction was determined to be more likely caused by the pharmaceutical excipients used in the cream, rather than the active substance aciclovir. If the side effects listed above are clearly expressed and involve areas not treated with the cream, you may have contact dermatitis. In this case, talk to your doctor.
Immune system disorders
Very rare: Early hypersensitivity reactions, incl. angioedema (severe allergic reaction that causes swollen face or throat).
