Ekovir 200 by John Lee is an antibiotic drug. It contains the active substance Acyclovir, which is an antiviral medication. Acyclovir is used in medicine to treat infections that are caused by viruses. This includes herpes simplex virus infections, chickenpox, and shingles. It is sometimes used off-label in combination with a steroid (usually Prednisolone) to treat Bell’s palsy. It can additionally be used to treat acne and post injection pain and inflammation after a steroid injection.

Effects of the drug

Acyclovir works by inhibiting the multiplication of viral DNA in the body. The drug does not cure the virus in the body but will reduce the symptoms of infections. The drug is able to reduce how severe symptoms are and how long they last. For viral infections, it is able to stop skin sores and acne from forming and helps them to heal much quicker. It can also help to prevent the spreading of viruses in those who have a weak immune system. Acyclovir can also reduce pain, irritation and inflammation of the skin in areas where there is a sore, acne or at an injection site.
