This drug is used to treat outbreaks of herpes simplex on the skin (mouth, lips, genitals, anus), outbreaks of shingles (herpes zoster), and chickenpox. This medication may also be used to help prevent outbreaks of herpes in patients with frequent outbreaks.
The viruses that cause these infections are similar. They live in the body quietly until an outbreak is triggered. Aciclovir is not a cure for the infections, but treatment of an outbreak can speed up healing of the sores, decrease pain, and lower the risk of complications from the virus (e.g., whole body infection, brain infection, persistent pain after sores heal).
