|Herzovir - Acilovir belongs to the family of medicines called antivirals, which are used to treat infections caused by viruses. Usually these medicines work for only one kind or group of virus infections. Acyclovir is used to treat the symptoms of chickenpox, shingles, herpes virus infections of the genitals, the skin, the brain, and mucous membranes (lips and mouth), and widespread herpes virus infections in newborns. Acyclovir is also used to prevent recurrent genital herpes infections. Although acyclovir will not cure herpes, it does help relieve the pain and discomfort and helps the sores (if any) heal faster. Herzovir is marketed under trade names such as Cyclovir, Herpex, Acivir, Acivirax, Zovirax, Herzovir (Sanofi-Aventis) and Zovir (GSK).|
