Patient: If I have ocular herpes and I’m already taking acyclovir orally do I give it time for the medicine to work ? My eye still remains swollen and I just started taking acyclovir yesterday
Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.Acyclovir is the right treatment buy any type of swelling takes more than 2 to 3 days to recover. Do not be impatient and wait for the swelling to go down.See a Doctor if the swelling does not go away after 3 days. Hope this helps you.
