What conditions can Aciclovir tablets treat?

How do Aciclovir tablets work?

The herpes simplex virus responsible for genital herpes isn’t always active. It can lay dormant for many years after a person’s contracted it and some people may never even have an outbreak. However, when the virus is activated, it can cause the signature red and itchy blisters on the genitals to develop. This can be extremely uncomfortable and can last for a couple of days or weeks, depending on how long it takes your immune system to deal with it.

Aciclovir tablets works by attacking the virus directly and affects the enzymes that are important in helping it to duplicate DNA and spread. If the virus can’t spread, it’s unable to resist attacks by the immune system, causing it to go back into its inactive state, which heals the infection.

How do you take Aciclovir 200mg?

To treat an outbreak of genital herpes, it is recommended that you take one 200mg dose, five times a day for five days. If you require help in preventing outbreaks you should contact your doctor.
