Aciclovir (Genital Herpes)

Genital Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease which is alarmingly common these days.Naturally, this disease is passed on from one person to another through sexual intercourse. The Herpes Simplex Virus-2 or HSV-2 is usually the cause for this infection. Another cause for this particular infection is the Herpes Simplex Virus-1 or HSV-1, which is usually the one that is responsible for symptoms such as cold sores, often found on the face, anus and genital areas.

Sexual Health

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Sexual Health. Below is what he has to say.

Sexual health refers to our ability to enjoy our sexuality throughout our lives. It's an important part of our physical and emotional health. Enjoying sexual health includes avoiding sexually transmitted infections. It also encompasses treatment of conditions such as premature ejacuation, impotence and hormonal imbalance.

Our sexual health is but one aspect of our overall health, and so we can improve our sexual health by making sure our general health is well looked after. For those who suffer from sexual infections, UK Meds can supply treatments for some of them. You can also find treatments for hormonal imbalances, including testosterone gel for men, and hormone replacement therapy for women.

They can also supply medications for impotence such as viagra and cialis. For men suffering from premature ejaculation, a drug called dapoxetine can delay ejaculation long enough for both partners to enjoy sex, and you can get these from UK Meds.

We also have treatment for herpes (aldara), genetal warts, Metronidazole (an antibiotic for infections of the vagina), and valtrex (a treatment for certain types of viruses).

It is a medicine used to decrease pain and speed the healing of sores or blisters in people who have varicella (chickenpox), herpes zoster (shingles; a rash that can occur in people who have had chickenpox in the past), and first-time or repeat outbreaks of genital herpes (a herpes virus infection that causes sores to form around the genitals and rectum from time to time).

What is Aciclovir?

Aclovir (also called Aciclovir) 400 MG Tablet DT is an antiviral agent which is used in the treatment of infections caused by herpes virus such as chickenpox and herpes zoster. The effect of this medicine is higher if it is started as soon as symptoms appear. It is also sometimes used to prevent outbreaks of genital herpes in people who are infected with the virus. It is in a class of antiviral medications called synthetic nucleoside analogues. It works by stopping the spread of the herpes virus in the body. It will not cure and may not prevent the spread to other people.

Is Aciclovir the best medicine for your condition? If you have never been diagnosed with herpes, our doctor will ask you to provide a photograph of the affected area for diagnosis. It can be taken to treat or prevent genital outbreaks and is a prescription-only treatment. Although there is no cure for herpes and the virus will remain in your body, assuming it can stop or reduce the unpleasant symptoms. To buy this medication, you need a prescription. When you place an order with us, one of our doctors will review your request and issue a prescription if the medication is suitable for you.

Aciclovir Uses

What are aciclovir tablets used for? They are used to treat viral infections caused by herpes simplex virus (such as cold sores around the mouth and genitals) and viral infections caused by varicella zoster (such as chickenpox and shingles). It works by stopping the growth of the viruses that cause the infection. In this way, it reduces the severity of the infection and prevents it from spreading. It helps the infection heal faster and lessens pain and itching. It does not kill the virus. The viruses that cause these infections continue to live in the body.

Aciclovir UK is also used to prevent viral infections in people with a reduced immune system such as if you are receiving chemotherapy. It is available as tablets in different strengths (200 milligrams, 400 milligrams and 800 milligrams). It is a treatment for genital herpes. It is used to treat bouts and suppress recurrent bouts. To place your order, fill in our brief medical questionnaire and indicate your preferred treatment. One of our online doctors will review your request and approve appropriate treatment.

Aciclovir is used to treat two common viral infections - varicella-zoster and herpes simplex. The varicella-zoster virus is the cause of chickenpox and shingles. Herpes simplex viruses cause cold sores. It works by preventing viruses from multiplying, and this reduces the severity of the infection and stops it from spreading. As well as treating infections, it can also be prescribed to prevent some viral infections from occurring. This is particularly the case in people who have a lowered immune system.

How to take Aciclovir

  • Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about aciclovir, and it will also provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you could experience from taking it.
  • Your dose will depend upon the type of infection you have, so take exactly as your doctor tells you to. Typically, doses range from 200 mg to 800 mg, and these doses are taken either three, four or five times daily. Your doctor or pharmacist will tell you what dose is right for you, and this information will also be printed on the label of the pack to remind you about what was said to you.
  • Space out your doses evenly during the day. You can take medicine either with or without food.
  • Even if you feel your infection has cleared up, keep taking aciclovir until the course is finished (unless your doctor tells you to stop sooner). This is to prevent the infection from coming back. The course of treatment prescribed could last between 2-10 days. If you still feel unwell after finishing the course, go back to see your doctor.
  • If you have been prescribed a dispersible tablet - these can be stirred into a small glassful (50 ml) of water to make them easier to swallow. You can, however, swallow them as normal if you prefer.
  • If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember and then continue as before. Try to take the correct number of doses each day, but do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.

Aciclovir has also been investigated for the treatment of herpes labialis applied using an iontophoretic device. Currently approved drugs for the treatment of herpes labialis (cold sores) exhibit low levels of efficacy due to the limited ability of the drugs to penetrate the skin to the site where the herpes virus is replicating. Iontophoresis uses electric current to enhance the delivery of drugs through the skin. You can buy aciclovir in the UK from UK Meds.
