I had my first outbreak of blisters on my face 3 weeks ago. I have never had herpes before. Started taking 200mg acyclovir 5x per day. For the first couple days the drug seemed to help heal my sores, but everyday I get new blisters. They increased my dose to 400 mg 5x per day and its gotten considerably worse. They are painful and itchy. I ve been to the doctor 3 times. Should I see a dermatologist or do I need to change meds. I feel the stress of them are making it worse. The blisters are only attacking one side of my face, eye, nose and jawline. Please help.
