Nonspecific, systemic supportive therapy may be required in some cases of primary infection with herpes simplex virus to prevent the possibility of death. These measures consist generally of transfusion of parenteral fluids, plasma and blood transfusions, plus symptomatic measures and good nursing care. In some cases, γ-globulin as a prophylactic measure for infants with eczema has been suggested (Scott and Tokumaru, 1965). The prevention of acidosis and dehydration in infants with severe gingivostomatitis and especially with eczema is extremely important.
