Allantoin(0.5% w/w)


Allantoin is used for relieving symptoms of pain, itching and dryness of lips caused by cold sores (fever blisters) or chapped lips. This medication will not cure sores caused by herpes simplex.

How it works

Allantoin is a skin protectant that works like a moisturizer to soften skin. It forms an oily layer on the skin and keeps the water inside and thus prevents skin from drying out.

Common side effects

How it works

How it works
