Cold Sore Virus


Cold Sore Virus -
The Cause of Cold Sores

by Denny Bodoh

Herpes simplex virus is often called the cold sore virus because it is the root cause of all cold sores, fever blisters and oral herpes outbreaks.

About 80% of all cold sores are caused by the type 1 version of the herpes simplex virus.  The other 20% are caused by the type 2 version.

It really doesn't matter which herpes type causes cold sores since they appear to be identical in every way - look, feel and heal time.

The cold sore virus is a sub-microscopic particle - so minute that many of them can hide within a single nerve cell.

When latent, this destructive virus will hide in the root cells of the nerve fiber group closest to the initial infection site.  Once it chooses the nerve fiber, that family of virus will stay with it for life.

The cold sore virus is a master at disguise!

Scientific data shows that, when latent, the cold sore virus shuts down almost completely and has been impossible to locate and destroy. 

Yes, undetectable to every medical attempt to eliminate them and invisible even to our own immune system.

(Recently, scientists feel they have discovered a way to track and locate this elusive virus.  Within a couple years, medical science believes they will have a method of attacking this virus while it hides.)

When the virus senses the conditions are right, it will come out of hiding and travel along the nerve fibers to the surface.

It is this travel along the nerve that gives you a tingling, itching and burning sensation at the target area - the first of several  cold sore symptoms.  Usually a cold sore begins forming within hours of this early warning.

Nerve cells destroyed by cold sore virus!

The cold sore virus becomes active only to replicate - create offspring so to speak. It cannot reproduce itself, like bacteria. Once this virus gets to the surface, it enters and takes control of a nerve cell - forcing that cell to create new virus particles.

When the cell is swollen full of new virus, the original virus destroys the cell, releasing all the new copies. It is this destruction of multitudes of cells in close proximity that creates the hideous open sore.

Your immune system immediately creates a thick fluid to help wash away as much virus as possible.

BE CAUTIOUS!  This fluid is very contagious to others as well as other places on your body.  If you infect another site on your body, you create another virus family and future cold sore site.

Use alcohol or hydrogen peroxide soaked throw-away tissues to help keep the wound sanitary. Try not to touch with your fingers. This is difficult as cold sores itch and are very uncomfortable.  Use a lot of hand sanitizer.

Cold sore virus may be linked to Alzheimers!

The cold sore virus is a very destructive parasite type virus.  As far as we know today, the virus does not spread internally or do any internal damage.  Its damage is primarily on the surface where we can get at it.  That is a good thing.

However, scientists are starting to find links between the cold sore virus and such diseases as Alzheimer's.  It appears there is a similar protein substance common to both Alzheimer's and cold sores.

Word to the wise - prevent cold sores whenever possible  

It is best for you to prevent cold sore virus outbreaks before they occur - and heal them as fast as possible when they do happen.  The fewer in frequency and the shorter in duration is an ideal goal to protect your social life, health and peace of mind.
