Hz Oral acyclovir 800 mg po five times daily for 7 to 10 days is the standard treatment.  Topical steroids (e.g. prednisolone acetate 1%) should be used for interstitial keratitis and uveitis. For episodes of scleritis, retinitis, choroiditis, and optic neuritis, systemic steroids by mouth or intravenous administration should be strongly considered. Neuropathic pain responds well to amitriptyline 25 mg po and pregaba m hs and can decrease the incidence of postherpetic neuralgia. Capsaicin cream applied to the rash may decrease pain as well.
