An otherwise healthy 18-year-old white male presents with pain on the right side of his head, increasing in severity over the past 2 days. Today he broke out in a rash consisting of grouped vesicles on an erythematous base in the distribution of the first division of the fifth cranial nerve. The right eyelid is involved, but the patient complains of no pain in the eye itself, or of any visual disturbance. There are no lesions on any part of the nose.

Appropriate management at this time would include the administration of which one of the following?

B) Oral famciclovir (Famvir)
C) Topical capsaicin (Zostrix)
D) Varicella-zoster immune globulin (VZIG)
E) Idoxuridine (Herplex) eye drops
