Comparison of therapeutic efficacy of Acyclovir 5% cream with silver Sulphadiazine 1% cream in herpes zoster
B Rao Prasanna, Jerome Pinto, Kamat
The effects of acyclovir 5% cream and silver sulphadiazine 1% cream were compared in 2 groups of patients of herpes zoster. Acyclovir cream was more beneficial only when used within the first 3 days or when the lesions were still predominantly papular. In the later stages silver sulphadiazine cream was effective.
