Very pleased to have found such a drug! Nothing, except for valacyclovir, does not help me from herpes. I spent a lot of money buying Valtrex, and could not replace it with anything. The pharmacy offered me an analogue that costs half the price. Now I have an effective remedy for herpes and the money saved. -

The drug helped me a lot. Herpes appeared only recently and Valcicon - the first thing I tried. Very pleased with the effect - in two days the bubbles dried out and a crust began to appear. Fully manifestation of cold passed in 6-7 days. I see no reason to look for another remedy for herpes, Valtsikon suits me perfectly. -

Herpes suffer from childhood. All the tools that I used before, it became much worse to help. The doctor prescribed Valcicon. To be honest, I did not notice much difference. Yes, the drug has an effect, the bubbles pass, the wounds heal. But not as fast as we would like. In addition, the price of the drug is much higher than other drugs from this group. -
