Rules For Use Of Acyclovir Ointment?
, using the drug ointment acyclovir with the form of tablets is it the same? If it is an ointment form, how many times should it be used one day?
Hello Danang, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Acyclovir drugs in Indonesia are currently available in several preparations, namely tablets and ointments. Although different preparations, basically both have the same way of working, namely as an antiviral drug that inhibits the proliferation of the virus.
Even though the method works the same, the two drugs have a slight difference, where the oral medicine works systemically (overall) while the ointment only works locally, that is, at the application site so that the method of its use is also different. The combination of the two is sometimes used to help optimize healing in complaints that appear on the skin.
How often the use of the drug acyclovir ointment also depends on the patient's condition, she must be at the doctor's instructions after a direct examination of the complaint. It is not recommended to buy this ointment without clear instructions from the doctor.
I hope this helps.
