Subject: Fusidic acid => shingles return?
An 83-year-old woman has had post herpeitc neuralgia for a number of years.
Five days after commencing fusidic acid eye drops an attack of herpes has
begun, from base of neck to trapezius (acyclovir started),
Could the immunosupressive effect of fusidic acid eye drops have allowed
the herpes to develop?
