I treated them with acyclovir
5 day treatment, and topical zovirax to manage the facial oozing. Outbreaks
were associated with stress, infrequent sunburn, or illness (if i was fighting off infection). In the past few years, the outbreaks have been increasing to a minimum of 4 per year. Last month, I had a record 2 outbreaks, just 2 weeks apart. Each outbreak is facially located, rotating (no pattern)to the same spot(either base of chin, or below my mouth).
