Aciclovir, is an antiviral drug. It treats a number of herpes virus infections, such as:

Acyclovir is a member of the synthetic nucleoside analogues class of antiviral drugs. It functions by preventing the herpes virus from spreading throughout the body. Acyclovir doesn't treat cold sores or genital herpes, stop outbreaks from happening or stop the virus from spreading to other people.
Aciclovir can be obtained with a prescription. It comes in pills, liquid to drink, eye ointment, cold sore, and genital herpes cream forms. Although this is often only done in hospitals, it is occasionally administered by injection.
