Did you know that green tea extract ointment for cold sores is now available in an over the counter product - AverTeaX® Topical Ointment?  

Developed by scientists, dentists, and dermatologists, the patented formulation, AverTeaX® contains a highly active form of green tea extracts which effectively inhibit herpes simplex virus infections. Clinical trial results show a significant reduction in the duration of episodes (median 4.5 days vs. 9 days) and shortened blistering and ulceration stages within an episode (from a median of 3 days down to 1 day.)  

As quoted from the published clinical trial:


"Previous studies suggest EGCG, a major component of green tea extract, could be a strong candidate for the next generation of HSV medications.  This is due to its ability to bind nonspecifically and inactivate multiple types of viruses."

AverTeaX® Topical Ointment with green tea extracts is fast-acting, and the most effective over-the-counter product available to treat cold sores. It is easy to apply, non-toxic, free of antiviral drugs or detergents,  no unwanted burning, and is cost effective.
