Why we like The Virulite Cold Sore Machine so much!
It is incredibly reliable and lasts for years. The only maintenance required is an occasional battery change.
At my pharmacy I see a lot of customers that are suffering with Cold sores and they get very frustrated with the current treatment options such as aciclovir (Zovirax) cream. The reason being that they are not very effective and in order to have any relief you have to catch the cold sore early. Unfortunately once you have the virus you have it for life as Cold Sores recur.
Virulite is different- it works by emitting invisible light which stimulates local immune response. It has NO harmful side effects and unlike the creams it works at any stage of sore.
Virulite has been approved by the NHS some years ago, and is also FDA approved which needed lots of evidence to show it really works.
The only downside about the machine is the cost. At £79.99 & FREE Delivery it is not cheap! However the Virulite is a very high quality product that is recommended by the NHS and proven to be Much more effective than creams for the treatment of cold sores. Also, we feel it is worth the money as the evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores.
How to use the Virulite Cold Sore Machine
The device should ideally be used as soon as the customer feels the “tingle” indicating that a cold sore is about to erupt. Simply hold the device against the affected area and press the activation button.
A visible light indicator lets you know that invisible infra-red light is being delivered to the area. After three minutes a “beep” lets you know that treatment is complete.
Customers are advised to repeat the treatment 12 hours later. If the cold sore progresses, the device should be used four times a day for two more days.
Results of a trial of 60 patients (published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in 2001)showed that a single application of Virulite CS healed cold sores in an average of 4.3 days, compared with 8.1 days for topical aciclovir applied five times a day.
A second trial, involving 32 patients (published in the same journal in 2006), showed that Virulite CS had a mean healing time of 6.3 days compared with 9.4 days for no treatment. The evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores and this is the subject of ongoing research.
The device is ISO13485 compliant (an international quality standard for medical devices) and has CE approval (showing that the device complies with relevant European health and safety legislation) & also FDA approval. No side effects have been reported.
The Testimonials and reviews for the Virulite are amazing, for example this one by Bobby Lall,
