Is Acyclovir Ointment Safe For 2-year-old Children?
Good afternoon, I want a consultation. I have a 2-year-old child. At the age of 1 year, 2 months I’ve had chicken pox, but now my child is itching and spots filled with water like smallpox but small. Initially only on the middle finger, and now it has spread throughout the body. What is the right medicine for my child ?? Is taking acyclovir ointment okay ?? Please answer yes
