Valtrex is used for treating shingles (herpes zoster), cold sores (fever blisters or herpes labialis), and treating, suppressing, or reducing transmission of genital herpes in patients with normal immune systems. It is also utilized to treat chickenpox in youngsters and teenagers. It is also utilized to suppress genital herpes in patients with HIV infection. Valtrex can be an antiviral. It works by stopping viral replication. However, Valtrex won't get rid of the virus; it isn't a cure. When used as being a suppressive therapy in patients with normal natural defenses with genital herpes using safer sex practices, the risk of spreading the infections to others is reduced.
