Zovirax Ointment Indication 

Zovirax is an antiviral drug that slows the growth and spread of the herpes virus so that the body can fight off the infection.  Zovirax is not a cure for herpes, but it may lessen the symptoms of the infection.   


  • Store Zovirax at room temperature away from moisture and heat.   
  • Keep all medication away from children and pets.   


  • Herpes infections are contagious.   
  • You can infect others with herpes even while you are being treated with antiviral medication.  
  • Avoid letting infected areas come into contact with other people.   
  • Avoid touching the infected area and then touching your eyes.   
  • Wash your hands frequently to prevent passing the infection on to others.  
  • Zovirax will not prevent the spread of genital herpes.   
  • Make sure to avoid sexual intercourse or use a latex condom to prevent passing the virus on to others.  
  • Before taking Zovirax, tell your doctor if you are taking probenecid (Benmid).   
  • If you are using this medication, you may not be able to use Zovirax or may need a dosage adjustment.

  • Tell your doctor about any prescription and non-prescription drugs that you use.   
  • Do not start a new medication without informing your doctor.   


  • This medicine is not expected to harm an unborn baby.  
  • Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant during treatment.  
  • Herpes virus can be passed from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth.  
  • If you have genital herpes, it is important to prevent herpes lesions during pregnancy so that you do not have an outbreak when your child is born.
