Brief overview of genital herpes treatment

Genital herpes treatment has evolved a lot since the late 70s and the early 80s. Acyclovir was the first effective herpes medicine which doctors used to suggest for suppressing the herpes simplex virus. Later another drug called valacyclovir was formulated to tackle herpes and cold sores outbreaks and also to minimise the risk of herpes transmission between sexually active partners. At present you have valacyclovir (Valtrex) and famciclovir (Famvir) for genital herpes treatment.

You can buy Valtrex and Famvir online from the comfort of your place. It is advisable that you buy these medicines only from a registered online clinic following medical consultation. Herpes patients usually buy Famvir for dealing with recurrent outbreaks. Valtrex, on the other hand, is more suited for tackling first-time outbreaks.

Valtrex is the only medicine that can reduce the possibility of a future herpes attack. And when Valtrex fails, you have the single-day treatment offered by Famvir to shorten a recurrent outbreak. Talk to your doctor for further information on herpes symptoms.

Both Valtrex and Famvir are for people with healthy immune systems. To prevent the risk of getting infected with herpes, you should practice safe sex as much as possible. Use condoms every time you have sexual intercourse and have a single sex partner. Also, never have sex when you or your partner is suffering from an active genital herpes outbreak, i. e., when the symptoms such as raw blisters and sores are on the skin.

Valtrex or Famvir may not be safe for you if you have kidney problems. These antiviral medicines may not be suitable for you in case you have bone marrow transplantation or advanced HIV. So make sure to inform your doctor about these conditions before taking any antiviral herpes medicines. Also, report any adverse side effects immediately to your GP.
