Valtrex For Cold Sores
Valtrex for cold sores belongs to a group of medicines called antivirals. Viruses such as herpes simplex, varicella zoster and cytomegalovirus are either killed outright or stopped from growing further.
Valtrex for cold sores in children is used to treat cold sores that appear around the mouth and chickenpox, whilst the use in adults differs, using it to treat cold sores around the mouth as well as shingles.
Taking Valtrex for cold sores will only treat these conditions and not cure them. The majority of viruses it treats stay within the body, even between outbreaks, and should only be used to reduce the severity and length of a virus.
Shingles Treatment Valtrex
Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. For the best shingle treatment valtrex, you should immediately start taking Valtrex tablets as soon as the first symptom appears, shingles treatment Valtrex may not help if treatment is started too late. It can cause small, painful blisters on the skin and can occur in people who have already had chickenpox.
It is not known whether or not shingles treatment Valtrex can stop the spread of shingles to others.

Valtrex Dosage For Suppression
The Valtrex dosage for suppression of genital herpes is as follows:
- The recommended dosage of Valtrex for chronic suppressive therapy of reoccurring genital herpes is one gram once a day in patient with normal immune function. An alternative dose of 500 mg once daily I recommended for patients with a history of nine or fewer reoccurrences per year.
Depending on the severity of the outbreak your doctor may change the Valtrex dosage for suppression. Any questions regarding the Valtrex dosage for suppression should be asked to your doctor or pharmacist.
Is It Too Late To Take Valtrex?
Some people wonder is it too late to Valtrex? This may happen when someone doesn’t recognise the symptoms of a viral outbreak such herpes simplex or genital herpes. There is no ‘too late’ period, but the quicker you act treating an outbreak, the shorter it will last.
For this reason, and to avoid ‘is it too late to take Valtrex?’ doctors recommend using Valtrex or other valacyclovir brands in the first twenty-four to seventy two hours of noticing symptoms.
Once an outbreak is contained, ask your doctor about future treatments, clearing up ‘is it too late to take Valtrex?’
Does Valtrex Stop Discharge?
Does Valtrex stop discharge? It won’t directly stop discharge from genital herpes, but it will help ease further discharge and other symptoms.
Getting treatment for an outbreak can limit the severity of symptoms and help prepare for future outbreaks throughout the rest of your life.
Follow these steps to help stop the chances of getting or spreading herpes when engaging in sexual intercourse:
- Use a condom
- Use protection when having oral sex
- Limit or avoid sex if you or your partner are currently having outbreak symptoms
Any questions regarding ‘does Valtrex stop discharge?’ should be asked to your doctor or pharmacist.
Can You Take Valtrex And Antibiotics Together?
Can you take Valtrex and Antibiotics together?
Both can be taken together, however using an anti-biotic for a viral infection will not help relieve symptoms. Finding out whether you have a bacterial or viral infection should be a priority.
Your doctor may prescribe both an anti-biotic and anti-viral if you have a bacterial and viral infection at the same time.
Ask your doctor “Can you take Valtrex and antibiotics together?” before taking them.
Valtrex For Uninfected Partner
A study was conducted to see if taking Valacyclovir each day would keep HSV-2 away, testing if it could prevent sexual transmission between infected partners to their uninfected partners. At the end of the study, the author concluded that taking daily Valtrex for uninfected partner can half the transmission rate over an eight month period.
The FDA approved in 2003 that suppressive therapy with Valtrex reduces the risk of transmission in otherwise healthy, heterosexual individuals.
Taking Valtrex for uninfected partner is then recommended to help reduce the overall spread of infections.
Before taking Valtrex for uninfected partner, ensure that you’ve talked to your doctor about side effects and other questions you may have regarding anti-viral treatments.
Valtrex Pregnancy Autism
A recent headline written by The Sun, “Women infected with herpes while they are pregnant are twice as likely to have a child with autism”. This prompted a study into whether maternal infections during pregnancy increase the risk of neurological developmental disorders such as autism.
The study initially found no association between HSV-2 virus and the development of autism in boys or girls. However, upon further investigations it suggested that high levels of HSV-2 virus antibodies during pregnancy increased the risk of autism in boys.
Valtrex pregnancy autism is not usually recommended for use during pregnancy. Don’t take Valtrex pregnancy autism without first consulting with your doctor. The pros and cons will be weighed against you and the risk to your baby.
Zovirax Vs Valtrex
Zovirax vs Valtrex are both anti-viral drugs that target the same viruses. Valtrex provides a longer duration of action, therefore, doses can be taken fewer times a day. This is the only real advantage between Zovirax vs Valtrex.
Your doctor will decide which anti-viral is best suited for your condition. Deciding between Zovirax vs Valtrex may be one of their decisions.
Valtrex for cold sores is one of many different herpes treatments we have available at My Pharmacy. Before changing treatments you should consult with your doctor and try to find the best Valtrex alternative for you and your viral severity.
You may want to consider some of the following as a Valtrex alternative:
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) passed on through vaginal, anal and oral sex.
Symptoms clear up on their own but can come back.
Go to a sexual health clinic as soon as possible if you have:
small blisters that burst to leave red, open sores around your genitals, anus, thighs or buttocks
tingling, burning or itching around your genitals
pain when you pee
in women, vaginal discharge that’s not usual for you
Go even if you haven’t had sex for a long time, as blisters can take months or years to appear.
Symptoms might not appear for weeks or even years after you’re infected with the herpes virus.
If you have genital herpes, your previous sexual partners should get tested.
Treatment for genital herpes
There’s no cure. Symptoms clear up by themselves but the blisters can come back (an outbreak or recurrence). Treatment from a sexual health clinic can help.
Treatment the first time you have genital herpes
You may be prescribed:
antiviral medicine to stop the symptoms getting worse – you need to start taking this within 5 days of the symptoms appearing
cream for the pain
If you’ve had symptoms for more than 5 days before you go to a sexual health clinic, you can still get tested to find out the cause.
Treatment if the blisters come back
Go to your GP or a sexual health clinic if you’ve been diagnosed with genital herpes and need treatment for an outbreak.
Antiviral medicine may help shorten an outbreak by 1 or 2 days, if you start taking it as soon as symptoms appear. But outbreaks usually settle by themselves, so you may not need treatment.
Recurrent outbreaks are usually milder than the first episode of genital herpes. Over time, outbreaks tend to happen less often and be less severe. Some people never have outbreaks.
Some people who have more than 6 outbreaks in a year may benefit from taking antiviral medicine for 6 to 12 months. If you still have outbreaks of genital herpes during this time, you may be referred to a specialist.
How to deal with outbreaks yourself
If you’ve been diagnosed with genital herpes and you’re having an outbreak:
keep the area clean using plain or salt water to prevent blisters becoming infected
apply an ice pack wrapped in a flannel to soothe pain
apply petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) or painkilling cream (such as 5% lidocaine) to reduce pain when you pee
wash your hands before and after applying cream or jelly
pee while pouring water over your genitals to ease the pain
do not wear tight clothing that may irritate blisters or sores
do not put ice directly on the skin
do not touch your blisters or sores unless you’re applying cream
do not have vaginal, anal or oral sex until the sores have gone away
How genital herpes is passed on
Genital herpes is very easy to pass on (contagious) from the first tingling or itching of a new outbreak (before any blisters appear) to when sores have fully healed.
You can get genital herpes:
from skin-to-skin contact with the infected area – including vaginal, anal and oral sex
when there are no visible sores or blisters
if a cold sore touches your genitals
by transferring the infection on fingers from someone else to your genitals
by sharing sex toys with someone who has herpes
You can’t get genital herpes:
from objects such as towels, cutlery or cups – the virus dies very quickly when away from your skin
Protecting against genital herpes
You can reduce the chances of passing herpes on by:
using a condom every time you have vaginal, anal or oral sex – but herpes can still be passed on if the condom doesn’t cover the infected area
avoiding vaginal, anal or oral sex if you or your partner has blisters or sores, or a tingle or itch that means an outbreak is coming
not sharing sex toys – if you do, wash them and put a condom on them
Why genital herpes comes back
Genital herpes is caused by a virus called herpes simplex. Once you have the virus, it stays in your body.
It won’t spread in your body to cause blisters elsewhere. It stays in a nearby nerve and causes blisters in the same area.
If you can, avoid things that trigger your symptoms.
