Treatment of episodic genital herpes
Famvicl, famviclovir, is mainly prescribed for the treatment of episodic genital herpes. This sexually transmitted disease is one of the most feared diseases, and its episodic epidemics can be a significant burden for the person concerned. If you take a few 500 mg tablets of Famvir immediately after you have noticed the first symptoms or feel like you are close to an epidemic, you can shorten the symptoms and quickly return to normal life. Before we go any further, let's first look at the typical signs and symptoms of an episodic genital herpes outbreak.
What is an epidemic of episodic genital herpes?
An episodic genital herpes outbreak or a recurrent outbreak, as some people call it, is when the herpes simplex virus (HSV) is reactivated from its resting phase and causes symptoms such as tingling. Itching and burning in the genitals and general weakness. In most cases, the severity of a recurring outbreak is milder than that of an initial outbreak. However, this does not make it easier to treat a recurring epidemic, as any delay in starting appropriate antiviral treatment can make symptoms worse and cause you much suffering and discomfort.
How can Famvir fight a recurrent herpes epidemic?
Famvir contains famciclovir as the active substance. It is a powerful antiviral that belongs to the active ingredient class of valaciclovir and acyclovir. Basically, the herpes simplex virus is treated by converting it to penciclovir as it enters the body. Penciclovir can prevent the proliferation of infected cells to prevent the virus from affecting healthy cells. However, in order for these Famvir tablets to prevent worsening of a recurrent herpes attack, you need to take them within 6 hours of seeing the symptoms. It is often observed that genital herpes can occur several times in the first year of infection. Therefore, keep an additional pack of Famvir tablets ready to increase safety.
Can treating a recurrent epidemic cure genital herpes?
No. For the first or third time, outbreaks of genital herpes cannot be treated and not fully cured. In fact, no existing treatment can kill the virus that causes it. In some patients, doctors may prefer suppressive treatment to episodic treatment. The good news is that Valtrex and Famvir can also be a very effective choice for the suppressive treatment of genital herpes.
Can the risk of an episodic epidemic be minimized?
It is believed that certain physical and lifestyle factors trigger an epidemic. These factors include stress, unprotected sex, the menstrual cycle, certain health conditions with fever, steroid medication and malnutrition. By taking these factors into account, you can significantly reduce the risk of virus reactivation. Talk to a doctor if you have an outbreak of primary genital herpes to plan how to avoid possible future seizures.
How do I buy Famvir?
Given the painful and embarrassing nature of the disease, it is understandable that you are unwilling to buy medicines from your pharmacy or ask someone to buy them. The good news is that you can get Famvir online after seeing a doctor from home. For more information, please visit an online clinic registered today.
Genital herpes medicine
I am a pharmacist and I am often asked about genital herpes. So I have some information for you and information that you can discuss with your doctor.
But first ...
Did you already know in the United States that every school can get federal funding for sex education? - You may ONLY teach an ABSTINENCE program.
What ?? Our society - from school to family to social and church life - has always supported education. Have we ever said as a people - what we really need is LESS education? No, it completely contradicts our conviction as a community.
Instead, the government says, "Leave these children in the dark, don't give them ideas, don't raise them too much, and that will protect them." Yes, that's a great idea! I think the government believes that less is more (except taxes, of course!).
So you're probably thinking - will this chic talk about genital herpes or not ?! Well i say no because if you know more about herpes you can get involved with some i bluff - let's go ...
Herpes simplex virus - There are two different strains. The first is HSV-1, which usually causes cold sores, then HSV-2, which causes genital herpes. It is possible to transfer cold sores to the genital area and genital herpes to the lip area.
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease. Over 22% of Americans have HSV-2. It is one of those sexually transmitted diseases that can spread through sexual contact (even without penetration). Condoms can help, but they don't protect 100%. It is very important to know that a person with HSV-2 can be contagious even without an obvious escape.
Just a short point here ... I was on a question and answer website and found a lot of questions about sexually transmitted diseases. You would speak of HSV2 as if it were the plague, but of HSV1 as "just a cold sore". The truth is that HSV1 and 2 are not too different - except that you get "caught" during sex. As a society, we do not speak openly about sex and sexually transmitted diseases (see Government and Sex above). Perhaps we could make a real difference in the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases by talking openly about these taboo subjects (instead of ignoring them). Okay, I'm out of my soap box, let's go ...
Symptoms usually begin within 2 to 14 days of infection. The first infection is usually the worst and can last 2 to 3 weeks. There are usually pimple-like bumps that turn into blister-like blisters that 90% of people think is painful. Flu-like symptoms can also occur (such as fever, headache, body pain). It takes about 12 days for viruses to be released (ie if they are contagious). As with most sexually transmitted diseases, the symptoms in women are often worse!
Once infected with the virus, it is there forever. The first year is generally the worst, with an average of 10 households. After that, the average person has 4 broods per year. However, some people experience very few epidemics in their lives. Some people have a "natural immunity" that the virus can keep under control. Stress, other illnesses and certain medications can increase the risk of recurrence.
Subsequent torches are generally less painful, less severe, and shorter. They last an average of 7 to 10 days, and virus shedding (if it is the most contagious) is about 2 to 5 days.
Treatment of an epidemic:
All treatments are prescription antiviral drugs.
It is best to start treatment with symptom onset for 72 hours.
Treatment within 72 hours has been shown to reduce the duration and severity of symptoms.
All of the following medications also work in the same way ... The decision about which medication to use depends on the price and frequency of administration.
Valtrex (Valacyclovir) 1000 mg twice a day for 7-10 days
Only available as a brand (the generic should be released soon)
It is exactly the same as acyclovir, except that it is easier to dose (twice a day compared to three to five times).
Famvir (Famciclovir) 250 mg three times a day for 7-10 days
Available in a generic
Zovirax (Aciclovir) 400 mg three times a day or 200 mg five times a day for 7-10 days
Comes in a generic and the 200 mg is currently on the discount lists in some retail pharmacies
Zovirax (Aciclovir) 800 mg three times a day for 2 days or 400 mg three times a day for 3 to 5 days
Famvir (Famciclovir) 125 mg twice a day for 3 to 5 days
Valtrex (Valacyclovir) 500 mg twice a day for 3 days
Prevention of epidemics:
If a patient breaks out regularly and wants to avoid this, antiviral drugs can be taken daily.
Zovirax (Acyclovir) 400 mg twice a day
Famvir (Famciclovir) 250 mg twice a day
Valtrex (Valacyclovir) 500 mg or 1000 mg once a day
Some studies have shown that over-the-counter lysine daily (500-1000 mg) can be helpful.
This is fairly detailed information about the medication, but I found it important: I have patients taking Valtrex and paying a lot of money if they take aciclovir and can pay 1/10 of the price. So talk to your doctor!
