Herpes tablets are a group of antiherpetic drugs used to treat herpesvirus infection of different locations.
To date, the pharmaceutical market presents many tablets that effectively treat herpes. Although no medicine eliminates Herpes simplex by 100%. This is because the causative agent is hiding in the nerve cells of the human body. Anti-herpetic drugs reduce the duration of the disease, relieve the painful symptoms (itching and burning at the site of eruption) and the general signs of this ailment, that is, headache, general weakness and temperature.
They are used not only for treatment but also for the prevention of relapses. Especially effective are drugs with immunomodulators. Medicines increase the body’s resistance to the virus and have antiherpetic functions.
Completely get rid of herpes in the body is impossible, so taking pills is a way to prevent relapses and exacerbations, that is, to protect the body from abnormalities in the functioning that arise due to the presence of the virus. Treatment of herpesvirus infection has two directions: taking antiviral drugs and antiviral therapy with immunotherapy.
Tablets from herpes are considered a means of local therapy. Tablets, like ointments, eliminate only a part of the painful symptoms and accelerate the healing process. The most effective treatment is considered, in which drugs with different mechanisms of influencing the virus are used. If the pill is taken at the first sign of the disease, when a characteristic rash has not yet occurred, then it helps to prevent the disease. With frequent relapses, patients are prescribed prophylactic pill administration for several months.
