hi

please i have a question,

i recently got a cold sore inside my right nostril and around itl and my doctor gave me this ointment to put in called acyclovir.... not sure how effective it's been for the inside but the outside region seems better....

the problem is that i just read all over the internet and the patient education leaflet that this ointment is not meant to be used for inside the nose or mouth.....

it lists a few side effects such as burning/swelling and itching ( which i have experienced all ) but nothing specific if it's applied inside the nasal passage...WHAT SHOULD I DO?! HAS ANYONE USED THIS FOR INSIDE THEIR NOSE?! IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I CAN USE INSTEAD?!?!
