If you or your child (12 year or older) has experience at least 3 or more cold sores per year during the past 2 years you (or your child) may qualify for a clinical research study involving a topical investigational cream for recurrent cold sores.

Patients are asked to come in for their 1st visit when they do not have a cold sore. They are given a tube of study medication to apply at home when they start to feel their cold sore coming on.

There is no cost to qualified volunteers and those who participate will be compensated for time and travel whether or not you develop a cold sore during the course of the study.
