One of the most effective treatments for Herpes is Zovirax, with the active ingredient acyclovir. This medicine will treat outbreaks of genital and oral herpes, as well as chicken pox and shingles. Although a cure for herpes has yet to be discovered, Zovirax eases symptoms by encouraging the sores to dry out and to disappear more quickly. Zovirax can also be used to prevent an anticipated outbreak.
Whether you are obtaining Zovirax from a local doctor or an online pharmacy, you will need to give your full medical history before you are approved for a prescription. Those who are have kidney or neurological problems may not be able to take Zovirax. The medicine is available in pill form, and may be taken with or without food. Side effects may include increased sensitivity to the sun, extreme thirst and even seizures. You should consult your doctor if side effects are severe.
Because of the nature of this medication, many people feel that it is more discreet to order Zovirax online than to go to their local doctor and pharmacist for a prescription. There are advantages and disadvantages to ordering Zovirax online. First, while using online pharmacies are quick and efficient, there are many unscrupulous sellers of counterfeit drugs online. You will need to make sure that your are working with a reputable, legal pharmacy with qualified doctors and pharmacists on staff. Secondly, you need to ensure that you are not buying from people who will sell your personal information to spammers. Make sure you give all of your information through a secured site.
It is important to realize that Zovirax does not cure herpes or prevent the spread of the ailment to others. While using Zovirax, you will still need to guard against transmitting the virus, so ensure that, during an outbreak, you refrain from kissing and other forms of intimate contact.
