Cold sores are blisters which occur on the mouth and lips, they are a symptom caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1). The virus is passed on through close contact with someone and i is often passed on through kissing and the sharing of cutlery, lipstick, toothbrushes, razors and glasses. Cold sores can also be caused by another type of HSV called HSV-2 type. This version of the virus causes genital herpes but it can also cause oral herpes if it is transmitted through oral sex.
The virus remains dormant under the skin but flares up and causes symptoms when the persons immune system weakens through stress or illness. Cold sores can take up to 10 days to fully heal, however in between this time a person can feel significant discomfort and pain. If treated with antivirals, cold sores can heal up quicker and cause significantly less pain than untreated.
Cold sore frequency varies from person to person. Some are more susceptible to outbreaks than others. They can be triggered by external factors such as sunlight, cold, scratches on or around the mouth. The most common triggers are a weakened immune system through illness and stress.
If antivirals are started at the “tingle” phase, they can significantly reduce the length of time symptoms last for.
