Description

What is Acyclovir?

Acyclovir tablets are often sold under the brand name Zovirax. It is used to treat certain viral infections. The medicine prevents viruses from multiplying further.

 

Why is acyclovir prescribed?

Acyclovir is used to treat infections caused by certain types of viruses. Among other things, it treats chicken pox and genital herpes to treat. In people with frequent herpes outbreaks, acyclovir is used to help reduce the number of future episodes.

However, it is not a cure for these infections. The viruses that cause these infections live in the body, even in between outbreaks. Acyclovir reduces the severity and duration of these outbreaks. It helps the sores heal faster and prevents the formation of new sores. In addition, it reduces pain.

In addition, in people with weakened immune systems, acyclovir can reduce the risk of the virus spreading to other parts of the body and causing serious infections.

 

How does acyclovir work?

Acyclovir belongs to a class of medications called antivirals. A class of drugs is a group of drugs that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

Acyclovir works by decreasing the herpes virus' ability to multiply in the body. It treats the symptoms of the infection. However, this drug cannot cure herpes infections.

Herpes refers to a group of viruses that cause a variety of herpes infections, including genital herpes, shingles, chicken pox and cold sores. Herpes viral infections are very common. Genital herpes refers to a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that any sexually active person can contract and pass on.

Shingles and chicken pox are common skin conditions. Shingles and chicken pox are skin infections that are both caused by the herpes virus. They are not caused by the same virus that causes cold sores or genital herpes.

Many people who suffer from shingles or chicken pox develop symptoms such as a rash, often with pain, that can be treated with this medicine.
