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?
