This may sound bizzare. This medication is used as a topical as opposed to injestible or injectible. My pain area is erruptions of blisters due to genital herpes. I am on a daily dose of Valacyclovir 500 mg. profilactily (meaning even without symptoms to keep a small dosage in my system to keep the virus at bay) The other day the virus was present with the pain of the broken blisters.

I was to gargle the solution to bring relief to painful strep throat. Since the solution had an extremely thick consistency, it was difficult to gargle.

I haven't experienced the numbness of the area that I would like to have, but the pain is less than it would be otherwise.
