Xerese Side Effects

Some of the common side effects of Xerese include redness, a burning sensation, and dry or flaky skin. In most cases, however, people tolerate this medication well and any reactions that do occur are typically easy to treat. Notify your healthcare provider if you are using Xerese and develop severe, intolerable skin reactions or any skin reactions that do not improve with time.

An Introduction to Xerese Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Xerese™ (acyclovir and hydrocortisone) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Xerese. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
