If your doctor feels that you or your child are likely to develop a more serious case, they may recommend an antiviral medication such as acyclovir Zovirax. If this is so, I am worried that my mother could have a very severe case of shingles at some point, assuming that she has acquired so much virus through 5 infections. There was no doubt, I had chickenpox. As soon as she had spots, she went to our GP who laughed his ass off and then prescribed them.
