Fighting periodic outbreaks of cold sores or genital herpes? If so, your body has been invaded by herpes simplex viruses 1 or 2. There is not yet a cure that will flush these viruses from your body, but taking a powerful antiviral drug, such as acyclovir, can reduce the number of outbreaks and their intensity.

When not in their active phase, which is marked by symptoms such as those cited above, these viruses reside in your nerve cells. You are most vulnerable to outbreaks when your immune response is suppressed or when you’re fatigued or under extreme stress.

Reduces Number of Outbreaks

As previously noted, acyclovir can minimize the number and severity of the outbreaks you experience. The drug is also effective against the herpes zoster virus, which is also known as the varicella zoster virus. It’s responsible for chicken pox, most often observed in children, and shingles, which usually affects adults over the age of 50. If you had chicken pox as a kid, the virus that caused it is still in your body and could reactivate in adulthood in the form of shingles.
