Acyclovir is the active ingredient in brand name Zovirax sold at a much lower price. Acyclovir is used to control the symptoms associated with infection of the HSV-1 and HSV-2 viruses, known as herpes.
Is There A Cure For Herpes?
There is no cure for herpes but acyclovir’s targeted therapy attacks the cells responsible for the virus and prevents their chance of multiplying. The herpes virus is most contagious during the initial breakout when symptoms first appear. The infected person “sheds” the herpes zoster virus. Acyclovir may shorten the shedding period, which reduces the chance of infection. Suppression therapy with acyclovir can prevent recurrences as much as 80% per year. Some people infected with the virus can live their entire life without any symptoms but they can spread the infection to others.
