Naturopathix launches ZymaDerm for Cold Sores
May 23rd, 2014
BOISE, Idaho – Naturopathix Inc. has introduced ZymaDerm for Cold Sores, a homeopathic topical treatment for cold sores and fever blisters.
The company said Thursday that the topical provides all-natural option for fast relief via a blend of soothing essential oils and organically bound trace minerals that rapidly dries out and helps heal cold sores and fever blisters.
Homeopathic ingredients in ZymaDerm for Cold Sores include iodine derived from seaweed extract, QACs (quatranary ammonicum compound) and plant-derived terpenes such as mentha piperati (peppermint oil), geranium graveolens (geranium oil), melissa officinalis (melissa oil) and lemongrass oil.
The essential oils include melaleuca alternifolia (narrow-leaf paperbark tree), jojoba oil and cinnamon oil. Naturopathix said this herbal proprietary blend is used to cleanse the skin and to retard or inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and viruses.
"ZymaDerm helps to quickly dry out and heal cold sores and fever blisters," stated Briant Burke, M.D., M.S., creator of ZymaDerm and Naturopathix's medical director. "It provides temporary relief of the pain of cold sores often within minutes of application. Early studies suggest application may help prevent blister occurrence if applied during the prodromal phase before blistering of the skin actually occurs."
ZymaDerm products — which also include homeopathic treatments for molluscum contagiosum, warts and shingles — are available in more than 20,000 pharmacies, including leading chains such as Walgreens and CVS/pharmacy, and at online merchants such as drugstore.com and amazon.com.
