It is a pity that your daughter was put on the Zovirax antiviral medicine which is now causing her to be very active and overstimulated.Her chest does not really seem to be any worse now and she does not need to be on an antibiotic as well as the Zovirax. You will need to complete the Zovirax course now that it has been started.The normal dose of Zovirax is given only 4 times a day, not 5 times a day in your daughter's age group,so can be given more or less every 6 hours. To make things as simple as possible give her a dose early in the morning, then at 12 midday, again at 5 pm and the last dose for the day you can give her at about 11pm. You will probably have to wake her for this dose.Your daughter is on an antiviral medicine and is probably no longer infectious after 3 days on Zovirax.
