Herpes - STI Treatment Guidelines
All acyclovir-resistant strains are also resistant to valacyclovir, and the majority are resistant to famciclovir. Foscarnet (40–80 mg/kg body weight IV every 8 hours until clinical resolution is attained) is the treatment of choice for acyclovir-resistant genital herpes (508,509). Intravenous cidofovir 5 mg/kg body weight once weekly might also be effective.
