This medication is also used to treat outbreaks of genital herpes. In people with frequent outbreaks, Zovirax  is used to help reduce the number of future episodes.

This medication is also used to treat outbreaks of genital herpes. In people with frequent outbreaks, Zovirax is used to help reduce the number of future episodes. Zovirax is an antiviral drug. However, it is not a cure for these infections. The viruses that cause these infections continue to live in the body even between outbreaks. Zovirax decreases the severity and length of these outbreaks. It helps the sores heal faster, keeps new sores from forming, and decreases pain/itching. This medication may also help reduce how long pain remains after the sores heal. In addition, in people with a weakened immune system, Zovirax can decrease the risk of the virus spreading to other parts of the body and causing serious infections.
