Timodine: Timodine cream has four active ingredients, hydrocortisone, nystatin, benzalkonium chloride and dimeticone. It is doubtful that this will have a beneficial effect on labial ulcers which are most probably herpetic. It may help to reduce inflammation, but if it is painful you might not want to do this. If this is herpes it should clear up in 7-10 days and topical treatment will seldom be effective.
