Against the background of stress, changes in the weather or trip to the mountains or the sea, where occur high UV radiation levels, especially after a cold with fever, the so-called ‘cold sores’ or ‘herpes’ may appear – characteristic blisters around the mouth, mainly on the border between lips and the surrounding skin.
To reduce the frequency and duration of such manifestations, occasional or regular treatment is provided using systemic antiviral ointments or creams, for example, Pen-Herpevir, manufactured by the pharmaceutical corporation Arterium, is used in the treatment of infections caused by herpes viruses of type 1 and 2. In addition to antiviral therapy, as a rule, agents and measures to improve the immune system are prescribed.
The Kyiv City Organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society is a reliable partner of the foundation in the field of health care. Liudmyla Lysenko, manager of the UWCF’s program “Walking to the Health Land”, handed over charitable help to the partner organization: 4,000 packs of Pen-Herpevir cream, manufactured by pharmaceutical corporation Arterium, for more than UAH 300,000.
“This help will be distributed among the district organizations of the Kyiv City Organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society to help vulnerable segments of the population. It is very important to take care about protection of children and families from illnesses in advance. We are grateful to the Charity Fund UWCF; this help will be a significant support for people in such a difficult time, when there is not enough money to buy some food, not to mention medicines”, noted Tetiana Hoienko, head of the Kyiv City Organization of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society.
