Antivirals when sick

Recommended Posts


Recently diagnosed with hv2 herpes Whitlow and been also struggling with anxiety and insomnia lately. My body is completely run down and I’m feeling sick now from lack of sleep. Is it a good idea to take antivirals when your immune system is low to prevent an OB? I just had my first a few weeks ago and can’t help but be paranoid that I might get another and second guessing every itch and tingle I may experience.

Yes, there's evidence that early use of antivirals can reduce long-term severity of disease.
