What are Cold Sores?
Cold sores, also called herpes are a very common condition. It is the result of the herpes simplex virus type 1 entering the body through a lesion or through a mucosal tissue.
Symptoms are easily recognized and localized around the mouth, or even on the rest of the face. It starts with a burning sensation, and then transparent vesicles and scabs form. A cold sore cycle lasts 10 to 15 days and often occurs during periods of fatigue or intense stress.
Once the virus is in the body, it is impossible to get rid of it. It settles in the lymph nodes, and then it can enter a dormant phase for several years!
