What Is A Cold Sore ?

What Is A Cold Sore
and How Do I Cope With Cold Sores?

by Denny Bodoh

A cold sore (sometimes called a fever blister) is a highly painful oral herpes ulcer that usually occurs on or near the lips or nostrils. It can also occur in other places, such as cheek, chin or finger tips - wherever the virus can find a hole in the skin.

Rarely does a cold sore appear inside the mouth. If it does, it will occur on the roof of the mouth or gums. Cold sores are sometimes confused with canker sores. 

Canker sores only occur inside the mouth. Cold sores are caused by a virus and are quite contagious.  Canker sores are more of an allergy sore - painful but not contagious.

  • What is the Cold Sore Virus? 

    The virus that causes cold sores is the herpes simplex virus - either type 1 or type 2. Most commonly, cold sores are caused by the type 1 herpes virus.

    Both types, however, can cause sores anywhere on the body. Cold sores are the end result of the herpes virus replication procedure.

    The virus enters your surface nerve cells and, in the process of creating new virus, will destroy the cell. It is millions of these destroyed cells that form the painful and weeping open sore.

  • What Symptoms Might You Expect from a Cold Sore?

    Here are some common symptoms in order of occurrence. You will feel a tingling/itching at the target site just prior to the outbreak.

    The area will then swell and several tiny pimple like blisters will form. These blisters break and merge, causing the painful, weeping open sore.

    You will probably get a fever, headaches and swollen lymph glands under the jaw. The sore then crusts over and heals - amazingly without a scar.

  • What is a good Cold Sore Treatment or Cure?

    There seems to be a lot of wild claims about cold sore treatments and cures going around the internet. 

    Like me, you may have tried some of them and found they don't deliver what they promise. 

    Fact is getting rid of a cold sore can be very easy.  Preventing them is even easier.  

    I used to get about 4-6 cold sores per year before I stumbled on this quick and easy cold sore remedy.  I have not had a cold sore in many years.
