Tablets should be taken 5 times a day for 1 piece (200 mg of active ingredient). Treatment usually lasts no more than 5 days. In severe herpes, this period may be extended.

    To avoid the recurrence of the disease, you can take 1 tablet "Acyclovir" 4 times a day or 2 tablets 2 times a day. The duration of use of this tool depends on the period during which the risk of recurrence of the disease remains.

    "Gerpferon" has immunomodulatory, antiviral and local anesthetic effect. This tool is made in the form of ointment. Use it at the acute stage of the disease. Ointment should be applied to the affected skin area up to 6 times per day. When symptoms begin to disappear, the frequency of use of this drug is reduced. The course of treatment lasts about 7 days.

    Valaciclovir acts much like the drug Acyclovir, but it also has a more pronounced effect. This tool is available in pill form. They are taken in 500 mg 2 times a day for 3–5 days. The use of this drug in the first 2 hours after the onset of herpes symptoms will significantly accelerate your recovery, and also help prevent the worsening of the disease.At the first signs of the disease during the day, take 2 g of the drug 2 times (with an interval of 12 hours).
