Does acyclovir topical creme work?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about acyclovir topical creme? I saw someone had mentioned this creme in a post (and also that its not covered by insurance which is sort of weird). Does it work? What does the milligrams need to be for it to actually do something for serious dermatological issues like mine that are just tearing up my nose? I posted a rather lengthy note earlier about OB's in and on my nose, and just wonder why my doctor didnt give me a prescription for this when I blundtly asked if there is a topical version of Acyclovir or anything similar. I am a little frustrated with that now.

It is not very effective. The oral drugs will promote healing 5x faster

than the cream. It is only shown to speed healing by 0.25 days if used

5x a day. Denavir cream has similar effectiveness (or lack thereof)
