Deform the virus means that you inactivate it..it can be done when the enveloped virus (HIV) is get hydrolysed by some agents (usually the envelope is lipids or glycolipids). So, the agent that we could think of is ether or tetrachloride carbon. Are you brave enough to apply them as a cream??
the second way is destroying its capside by strong bases...are you brave enough to apply concentrated Sodium Hydroxide based agent as a cream?

The answer for both question: I don't think so.. :wink:

That's why I asked, how it deforms the virus. :)

Hey, I've got a strange way of thinking..what I think is HIV can get spreaded not only from sexual relations but also from blood to blood (e.g. through syringe). Then if like that, how to apply the cream?? is it like we use body lotion all over the body?
and also, cream as it named, only used for topical (e.g. above skin). Then how do it prevent from HIV via intravein? it's below the skin right??

As a conclusion, my opinion is: No need for that cream.
