12 Sep 2011 works well. Pills are big and kind of hard to swallow and smell bad.

26 Jun 2011 I had a fever blister on my lip that had somehow spread all over my eyelids and certain areas below on my face. In combination with my eczema, they were really dry and started to crack and burst, which was not only uncomfortable but painful especially under water. With Aciclovir, those bubble-like, inflamed skin patches started to turn to normal color. The swelling went down each day and all symptoms disappeared by the end of the week. Aciclovir is effective and works fast to stop the spread and infection of the virus.
