Already a leader in the cold sore treatment market with its patented Viracea® formula found in RELEEV 1 Day Cold Sore Symptom Treatment, Merix is now bringing its technology to deliver fast symptom relief to the genital herpes sufferer.

Fast-Results! Genital Herpes Treatment is comprised of Merix’ patented technology Viracea® which is approved under the FDA OTC Antiseptic/Antimicrobial Monograph. Fast-Results! also includes Merix’ new patented technology that is also approved under FDA OTC Monographs. Provided in a topical spray, Fast-Results!(TM) quickly and effectively relieves the pain, burning, and itching caused by genital herpes. At clinical trial, Viracea® was shown to be very effective and very fast at healing herpes caused lesions.

The Center for Disease Control recently reported that 1 in 6 people in the U.S. between the ages of 14 and 49 suffer from genital herpes. That is greater than 37 million people and if older ages are included, the number is even larger.

“We are very excited to bring this revolutionary product to consumers. Fast-Results! is a very effective topical treatment for immediate relief of the very painful symptoms of genital herpes outbreaks. We believe it is time to change the stigma and embarrassment associated with this infection and help people get fast treatment so they can live life fully again. Although we recommend it be used in conjunction with prescription medication, there are many people who cannot afford a prescription. Fast-Results! brings these people fast, easily available, over the counter treatment,” stated Merix’ CEO, Meryl Squires.

Major retailers have already committed to carrying Fast-Results! Genital Herpes Treatment with product launching in CVS stores in mid May and Rite Aid stores soon after.
