Taking 400 mg of Zovirax and beginning today. Is it necesary to take this 5 times a day?
At the first notice of the tingle take the medication. Twelve hours take next doses take care of your tummy as it can be harsh. I did this last week and instead if having a volcano on my lip I had four small pin sized dots that began to heal rapidly ..
I take Imodium with it as I have a particularly sensitive stomach. Stay out of the sun while they are healing. They can flare up again while on Zovorax with excessive sun exposures . Wal-Mart sells lip balm with an spf greater than 5% always good to have around.
I find taking the med with a full stomach helps with the tummy upset. You can also take the pills and rub the cream on the site several times a day to speed the healing process.
