Two groups of 11 patients with herpes zoster in various parts of the body have undergone two different treatments: the first was given one acyclovir tablet (200 mg every four hours only during daytime) plus a paint of idoxuridine 40% (five times a day for seven days); the second was treated with two tablets (200 mg five times a day for seven days). The therapeutic association of local idoxuridine and systemic acyclovir seems to yield, from a clinical point of view, results which are similar (if not more advantageous) to the treatment with only acyclovir given orally even in double doses.
