Hello. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Ocuvir 400 MG Tablet DT is an antiviral agent which is used in the treatment of infections caused by herpes virus such as chickenpox and herpes zoster. Chicken Pox is always treated with suitable antibiotics and antiviral medicines. Do not listen to other people. Get advise from your doctor.
Hope I have answered your query. You can contact me for treatment options. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. K. V. Anand
