Properties and effects

The main action of Acyclovir in medicine is to stop viruses multiplying in the body, and therefore reducing the symptoms of viral infections. It will help to prevent the spreading of viruses in those who have a weak immune system. Although the virus will not be cured from the use of Acyclovir, the severity and duration of symptoms will decrease. For skin infections, skin sores and acne will be prevented from forming and they will heal a lot faster. For other irritated areas of the skin, pain and inflammation will be reduced with the use of this drug.
