For the topical treatment of recurrent oral-facial herpes simplex episodes (cold sores or fever blisters).

Comestrol Pharmacology

Docosanol is a saturated 22-carbon aliphatic alcohol which exhibits antiviral activity against many lipid enveloped viruses including herpes simplex virus (HSV). Docosanol speeds the healing of cold sores and fever blisters on the face or lips. It also relieves the accompanying symptoms, including tingling, pain, burning, and itching. Docosanol cannot, however, prevent cold sores or fever blisters from appearing.

Comestrol Absorption

Topical absorption has been shown to be minimal under conditions reflecting normal clinical use.

Comestrol side effects and Toxicity

Symptoms of overdose include headache, abdominal pain, increased serum lipase, nausea, dyspepsia, dizziness, and hyperbilirubinemia.
