Hi,thanks for query.The drugs are fine,but dose is low.This is not the ideal dose for occuvir.Wysolone is not required unless they are very serious.The disease is very distressing but curable and treatment is effective.Please take a second opinion from a skin specialist for this.
wishing you good health.

Hi Krunal, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

You are on right medications. Kindly don't worry as it will take some time for the symptoms to subside. Just take your Medications as directed by your Doctor and go for regular follow up.

If you have blisters, do not try to squeeze to pinch them. Try applying ice or warm compresses to the blisters as this is known to relieve pain.

Get adequate rest, avoid stress and eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables.

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
