How Dangerous Are Cold Sores?
by Denny Bodoh

Cold sores are not life-threatening, but they still can be quite dangerous. 

If you read nothing else about cold sores, it is very important that you read this right now.

Cells forced to create new cold sore virus.

The sores created by the herpes virus are the result of the herpes virus entering cells, forcing them to create new virus, and then destroying the cells to release the new copies. 

The open cold sore that you see is the result of millions of body cells, close together, that have ruptured.

The cold sore virus can create cold sores and destroy body cells anywhere on the surface of your body where the virus is contracted. 

It will enter any break in the skin or soft tissue and establish residency there.  Once established, it will create herpes sores in that area on a reoccurring basis.

Cold sore outbreaks extremely contagious. 

An active cold sore is highly contagious during the entire event, which lasts about 3 weeks or so.  The sore is considered extremely contagious during the open sore and scab stage.  The fluid that weeps at these times is teeming with new virus, looking for a home.

During an active cold sore event, the herpes can be present and contagious in your bodily fluids such as saliva or vaginal fluids. 

For this reason, a good doctor will not want to deliver your baby vaginally if you have active cold sores.  The danger here is the risk of the baby getting the herpes virus in the eyes during delivery, which could cause damage or blindness.

Cold sores in the eyes causes permanent damage to cornea...       

Also, each year, there are cases reported of folks spreading it to their own eyes. This often causes permanent vision damage.

Cold sores on the cornea are a real threat each and every time a person has a cold sore.  Most often, the transmission of the virus to the eyes occurs with contaminated fingers or towels.

Using alcohol on a cotton swab or ball to continually clean and sterilize the wound is a very good measure of protection.  Also, applying a proven cold sore treatment at this time is wise.

The more often you get cold sores and the longer each one lasts greatly increases the risk to you and your family.

How dangerous are cold sores?  Very dangerous indeed.  If possible, do what you can to prevent an outbreak. 

If you get an outbreak, do whatever you can to get rid of the sore quickly and safely.
