Viral vaginitis This virus can be treated with antiviral medicines. These include acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir. These medicines don't kill the virus. Acyclovir is used to treat viral infections.
Thrush is a fungal infection, meaning that acyclovir is not an appropriate treatment and will not help relieve or cure thrush symptoms. Acyclovir (also known as acyclovir or the trade name Zovirax) is a prescription antiviral medication used to prevent or treat herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections. Acyclovir cannot completely cure herpes, but it will stop the growth of the virus and suppress symptoms, helping to treat outbreaks. Acyclovir and vidarabine are currently the only antiviral drugs available for HSV and VZV infections, with acyclovir apparently being the most effective.
