Doc. My doctors have told me that I have Herpes Zoster,and suggested me to no to go to the office for 7 days at least. Can u please tell what other precautions that I should keep in my mind along with having famtrex 250?
Response from Dr. Young
Assuming that your only symptom are the skin lesions, you are contagious until the vesicles (blisters) are crusted over. With the VZV medication (Famvir/Famtrex), I'd expect you to be well on your way to healing within the 7 days.
Hope that's helpful and get well soon, BY
Changed my schedule for taking efavirenz
Switching from kaletra/truvada to stribild
