Hello Doctor. My Husband got chicken pox and the local physician prescribed him cifran 500 twice daily and ocuvir 400DT 3 times daily in water. People tell me that no medication must be given for chicken pox. If this is right then is the physician prescription wrong?? Pls reply..
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
