I have been using the eye drops (Viroptic) the doctor prescribed for 4 weeks without a great deal of improvement. He wants me to go to an MD and get on Acylovir. Has anyone else had any experience with this problem? It is very painful and quite wearing on one to have it go on so long.
Is the herpetic keratitis due to HSV 1 or 2??
And how did u get infected in the eye??
