Contrary to popular belief, viruses are not living micro-organisms. They are made up of genetic material (such as DNA or RNA) packaged within a shell of protein.
Unlike bacteria, viruses are incapable of living and replicating outside of a host, such as the human body.
In order to survive in the body, the virus hijacks a cell and uses it to replicate. Once the replication is complete, the virus leaves the cell to hijack another, resulting in the cell's death.
Aciclovir works by inhibiting a protein in the body which the virus uses to replicate itself and cause further infection.
By limiting the virus's ability to multiply, the immune system can fight the infection more effectively, treating the symptoms faster.
It's important to understand that Aciclovir is not a cure for herpes and does not kill or destroy the virus. Once the number of viruses are diminished, the immune system takes over to beat the virus into remission.
Even if you treat genital herpes with Aciclovir, you may still experience future outbreaks which will require further treatment.
Herpes is a sexually transmitted infection which is estimated to affect one in ten people in the UK.
There are two variations of the herpes simplex virus, HSV-1 and HSV-2; HSV-2 is mainly associated with genital herpes.
Once a person is infected with herpes, the virus lies dormant in their body and may cause episodic outbreaks of symptoms from time to time. Though these outbreaks may not be predictable and may happen months or years apart from one another.
During acute infection, unpleasant symptoms may appear. After this initial outbreak, future outbreaks tend to produce less severe symptoms.
For recurrent herpes infections, treatments such as Aciclovir can be used to supress the virus and beat it into remission, improving symptoms and preventing the virus from spreading.
Based on figures from 2018, it is estimated that more than two-thirds of adults under the age of 50 carry the herpes simplex virus. Some people may not know they have herpes as they may not show symptoms, and therefore are unlikely to visit their doctor to get diagnosed.
Genital herpes can be passed on through skin-to-skin contact with the infected area during anal, oral and vaginal sex. Direct transmission can occur if your genitals come into contact with a cold sore.
You can also contract genital herpes indirectly, through intimate contact and sharing sex toys. For example, a person could transfer the virus to their hands after touching an infected area and then pass it on to you by touching your genitals.
Even when symptoms are not present, herpes can be passed on.
You cannot get genital herpes by sharing towels, cutlery or glassware. However, herpes associated with cold sores on the mouth can be passed on through kissing, sharing utensils and glassware.
HSV-1, the strain of herpes which causes oral herpes (cold sores), can cause genital herpes.
You can protect yourself from genital herpes by practising safe sex. This means:
While condoms offer adequate protection against most STIs, they may not be as effective at preventing genital herpes unless they cover the affected area.
Once you have been infected with herpes, the virus may lay dormant in your body. You may not notice any symptoms for weeks, month or sometimes even years.
However, you may experience recurrent outbreaks, where your symptoms worsen for a short while.
These outbreaks can be triggered by:
If you are unsure what steps are most appropriate for you to take to prevent an outbreak of genital herpes, speak to your doctor for advice.
Symptoms of genital herpes are:
If you are experiencing these symptoms for the first time, it's important that you speak to your doctor in person. They will be able to advise the most suitable treatment for you, based upon your medical history.
If you are experiencing a recurrent infection, you can buy Aciclovir for genital herpes online from Prescription Doctor following a short online consultation. One of our online doctors can ensure Aciclovir is safe for you and issue a prescription for our UK based pharmacy to fulfil.

The tablets are taken over a course of 5 days, starting as soon as you notice symptoms of an outbreak.
If you miss a dose, do not take another tablet to compensate for the missed dose. Always follow the instruction of the doctor or pharmacist.
If you are unsure how to take Aciclovir, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

If it is almost time for your next dose of Aciclovir, skip the missed dose and continue to take Aciclovir as prescribed by your doctor.
Do not take more Aciclovir to make up for the dose you missed.
Accidentally taking more Aciclovir than you should is unlikely to cause you serious harm, unless you continue to take more than prescribed.
If you accidentally take more Aciclovir than you should, speak to your doctor or pharmacist. Take the packaging of the medicine with you so that the healthcare professional knows exactly what you have taken.
Aciclovir may affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. It is important to see how Aciclovir affects you before you attempt to drive or operate machinery.
If you notice any side effects of Aciclovir which may impact your concentration, such as drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue or visual disturbances, avoid driving or operating machinery until you feel it is safe to do so.
Alcohol is unlikely to interact with Aciclovir. Avoid drinking more than the recommended weekly 14 units of alcohol while taking Aciclovir.
Aciclovir should not interfere with the combined contraceptive pill or emergency contraception.
If you experience vomiting or diarrhoea after taking Aciclovir, the effectiveness of your contraceptive pill may be reduced. If this occurs, speak to your GP about what next to do regarding your contraceptive pill.
For genital herpes, Aciclovir usually takes 5 to 10 days to clear up an outbreak.
For the prevention of genital herpes, you may need to take Aciclovir for longer.
If your partner has an outbreak of herpes, you should avoid sexual contact until the infection has cleared.
If you suspect you may have caught herpes from your partner, seek advice from your GP or a sexual health clinic.
If you notice little or no improvement after your course of Aciclovir, speak to your doctor. They may be able to increase your dose or prescribe something else which might be more effective for you.
You should take each Aciclovir dose at least 4 hours apart from each other.
Try to take the tablets at the same time each day. If you often forget when to take your medication, consider storing your medicine where you will be reminded to take it or set an alarm on your phone to remind you.
While there is no cure for genital herpes, there are treatments available such as Aciclovir, which help to reduce the symptoms by suppressing the virus. The virus will still remain dormant in the body.
While genital herpes is unlikely to kill you, it can increase your risk of contracting more serious and life threatening diseases such as HIV.
When you have an outbreak of herpes, you should refrain from sexual contact until the area affected has cleared. This will also prevent you from contracting more serious infections.
