The younger son recently “brought chicken pox from school. I was looking for a good medicine, found Alpizarin. The doctor did not tell me anything about him, so I went to him for a consultation. The doctor approved the choice, so she immediately gave the pills to her son. Thank God, there were no side effects. My son tolerated the treatment with these pills. By the way, I didn’t even spend one box (there were 20 of them in it). The treatment took only two weeks. Everyone is happy, son, too, Alpizarin has no flaws! Irina, 45, Omsk

I got herpes from a friend when I was in school. Since then, my lips periodically began to appear unpleasant rash. How disappointed I was when I learned that there is no one hundred percent preventive relapse prevention! Yes, and herpes treatment is difficult to give. Many drugs showed very low performance! I learned about Alpizarin ointment purely by chance. And I don’t regret it at all, because the remedy is very good. It does not have an unpleasant smell, does not provoke peeling and really works! The price is more than satisfactory. Alina, 22 years, Perm

I bought Alpizarin in the form of tablets and ointments, when it was necessary to fight herpes. I can leave an honest and objective review about the preparation, as I have used many other ointments, etc. Alpizarin helps - he was convinced of this, since during the course of treatment he did not use anything else. No side effects encountered. The price matches the quality. But I can not say that this Alpizarin - the best remedy for herpes. Of course, it is effective, but it cannot be called a miracle super preparation. Vlad, 30 years old, Surgut

    I was helped by literally one tablet of Alpizarin, especially if I drank it at the first sign of herpes.
