Anti-viral: Anti-viral medicines such as Acyclovir are usually prescribed. For pain, over the counter medicines like Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen (tylenol) are typically used. If you have open blisters in the area of your rash, over the counter topical antibacterial ointments like neosporin can be used.
