Can valacyclovir treat ringworm?
Welcome to www.nimedhealth.com.ng
This question is funny right? I will answer it. Ringworm is a fungal skin infection ….it requires a special class of called antifungal medicine to cure or treat it. Valacyclovir is an antiviral drug used to treat viral infection like herpes, genital warts, cold sores etc. Antiviral drugs cannot be used to treat fungal infections.Does this answer the question?
Antiviral drugs like valacyclovir and acyclovir cannot treat fungal infection alike ringworm (dermatophytosis), candidiasis, vaginal yeast I infection, times pedis, jock itch etc. If you want to treat fungal infections (ringworm), use drugs like fluconazole , ketoconazole, funbact a, terbinafine etc and not #valacyclovir.
