Hello Dr. A. Clark,
My question is The medicine Acyclovir is good for my child?
Acyclovir is quite safe and even used in newborn babies exposed to certain viruses.
I have used it many times in kids with mouth ulcers with mixed results since it is not a cure-all for all viruses that cause ulcers but most are from the herpes family and it works pretty well for them.
Can I use something rinse for my child?
I doubt it will help but might be worth trying Peridox, which the oral surgeons and dentists recommend to help clean up the ulcers.
Then I can't use that? What do you recommend me?
I'm sorry, I do recommend trying it as it works well for kids with ulcers from their braces.
Thank you Dr. your support help me a lot. Good night!
