What is Virogon Cream?
Virogon Cream belongs to the family of medicines called antivirals, which are used to treat infections caused by viruses. Usually these medicines work for only one kind or group of virus infections.
It is used to treat the symptoms of chickenpox, shingles, herpes virus infections of the genitals (sex organs), the skin, the brain, and mucous membranes (lips and mouth), and widespread herpes virus infections in newborns. Virogon Cream is also used to prevent recurrent genital herpes infections. Although Virogon Cream will not cure herpes, it does help relieve the pain and discomfort and helps the sores (if any) heal faster.
It may also be used for other virus infections as determined by your doctor. However, it does not work in treating certain virus infections, such as the common cold.
This Cream is available only with your doctor’s prescription.
Once a medicine has been approved for marketing for a certain use, experience may show that it is also useful for other medical problems. Although not specifically included in product labeling, Virogon Cream by injection is used in certain patients with the following medical conditions:
- Herpes simplex (for prevention of repeated infections) in people with a weak immune system
- Herpes zoster infections of the eye
- Shingles (for prevention of repeated infections) in people with a weak immune system
