Resistant Herpes

Aug 15, 2006

What is the treatment for resistant herpes when you have HIV

Response from Dr. Frascino


There are different types of herpes viruses (herpes simplex, varicella zoster, EBV, CMV, HHV6-8, etc.). There are also various types of resistance (resistant to usual doses of acyclovir, etc.). The antivirals with activity against herpes viruses include acyclovir, famciclovir, valacyclovir, ganciclovir, foscarnet and Cidofovir. I suggest you discuss your specific case with your doctor.

Good luck.
