Herpes simplex Acyclovir Acivir Cream

Uses
Acivir Cream (Acyclovir) is a topical antiviral cream which is used for herpes infections, including genital herpes, cold sores, herpes zoster (another name for shingles) and chickenpox. The active ingredient in this cream is known as a synthetic nucleoside analogue, and its mechanism of action involves inhibiting the activity of an enzyme (known as DNA polymerase) that the herpes virus needs to spread, which in turn prevents the multiplication of the virus. Although it can help to heal sores, blisters or other symptoms of a herpes infection, it will not cure the virus.

Dosage and Administration
Acivir Cream (Acyclovir) is applied topically, exactly as directed. Patients who are treating herpes simplex labialis (cold sores) may be instructed by a doctor to apply it to the area requiring treatment 5 times per day, and treatment may last for a period of 4 days. Treatment usually commences as soon as possible after symptoms present themselves. Adults treating herpes simplex are sometimes told to apply the cream to the affected area at 3 hour intervals, 6 times per day, and it is possible that treatment may need to continue for 7 days. In all cases, the instructions of the doctor must be adhered to.

Patients undergoing treatment with Acivir Cream (Acyclovir) may notice some side effects, such as:

  • Redness
