Suggest Treatment For Shingles While On Acyclovir

During my tww of ivf, I developed shingles. The ivf failed. Is it because of the shingles? Acyclovir cream seems to be worsening the blisters. Is that normal, that the blisters get bigger and then erupt? How Long after shingles can I start on a new cycle or ivf and how can I prevent another breakout of shingles? Thanks. Diana

Hello,

You should take acyclovir 800 depending on the severity.

Apply acyclovir cream on the blisters.

Take an NSAID such as Advil for the associated pain.

Please contact your doctor if the condition does not improve or worsen.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
