Zicam Zavors, Liqui-Loz
The Zicam line has expanded to include two new cherry-flavored oral zinc cold remedy products. Zicam Zavors are chews with a crunchy shell and soft center. Zicam Liqui-Loz are lozenges with a liquid center.

Lipsovir is a new prescription cream for the early treatment of recurrent herpes labialis (cold sores). The cream contains a combination of hydrocortisone and acyclovir; it is approved for use in adults and children 12 years of age and older to decrease the risk of cold sores and to shorten the healing time for those cold sores that are not prevented.
