What is Famvir ?
Famvir has been clinically proven to control recurring infections caused by the herpes simplex or zoster virus such as genital herpes, cold sores and shingles. This anti-viral treatment can eliminate genital herpes symptoms within just 24 hours. Its main effect is to help the sores heal faster and to prevent new sores from forming, it also helps to decrease the pain or itching. In addition, those with a weak immune system benefit more from the treatment as it can decrease the risk of the virus spreading to other parts of the body. Although these viruses cannot be cured, by taking Famvir you can control it and make sure that the virus is in a dormant state. It’s particularly beneficial for adults who suffer from regular herpes outbreaks and as a result can be used as a preventative treatment.
When you buy Famvir online you will need to complete a medical consultation with our registered doctor. If our doctor feels that you are suitable to use this herpes treatment, it will be prescribed and delivered from our UK pharmacy the same day or next day.
Famvir is regarded as a clinically proven anti-viral treatment for either the herpes virus or zoster virus. The main benefits it provides include:
- Provides significant reduction of uncomfortable symptoms
- Can reduce the nerve pain that is commonly linked with shingles.
- Helps prevent the spread of the herpes virus
- Can decrease severity and length of outbreaks
How does it work?
Famvir (famciclovir) anti-viral STI treatment is prescribed to work against two kinds of viral infections. These infections include:
- Shingles/Cold Sore:
This infection is caused by the varicella zoster virus. It is characterised in the form of the herpes simplex type I (HSV-1) which usually causes a rash around the mouth and lips (cold sores). Although the symptoms may become docile, it may erupt later on in life in the form of shingles. This virus form is also known to cause herpes keratitis, an inflammation of the cornea of the eye. Famvir helps to accelerate the healing process in the body by preventing the virus from multiplying and keep it dormant for longer.
- Genital herpes:
This viral infection is caused by the herpes simplex type II virus (HSV-2). The common symptoms include sores and itching around the genital area. This virus is usually transmitted in most cases through sexual intercourse.
After taking this treatment, it is broken down in the body and converted to the active compound penciclovir. Penciclovir blocks the growth of infected cells and thus prevents its spread. The earlier the treatment is started, the more effective the effects of Famvir, as the viruses multiply quicker at the the beginning of infection.
