Outbreaks can range from uncomfortable to devastating if you get them at the wrong time – which is exactly when they tend to pop up.

Instead of reacting, you can take a proactive approach to treating outbreaks.

The good news:

There are a few treatments that work, are cost-effective, and are widely prescribed by Australian GPs.

The even better news:

Pilot makes accessing doctors and those treatments simple.*
