How Do I Know If I Have a Cold Sore
Cold sores are likely to show up around your mouth and lips, however, you can also get them on your nose or cheeks. They usually pass through 3 stages:
- Tingling and itching. Many people feel itching, burning or tingling around the lips for a day or so before a small, hard, painful spot appears, and blisters erupt.
- Blisters. Small fluid-filled blisters typically erupt along the border of your lips. Sometimes they appear around the nose or cheeks or inside the mouth.
- Oozing and crusting. The small blisters may merge and then burst, leaving shallow open sores that ooze and crust over.
Signs and symptoms vary, depending on whether this is your first outbreak or a recurrence. The first time you have a cold sore, symptoms may not start for up to 20 days after you were first exposed to the virus. The sores can last several days, and the blisters can take two to three weeks to heal completely. Recurrences typically appear at the same spot each time and tend to be less severe than the first outbreak. (1)
How Do Cold Sores Spread
Cold sores are caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). This virus is extremely contagious and is spread through close contact like kissing or sharing utensils or towels. After you’ve been infected with the virus it may lie dormant and cause another outbreak in the same place as before.
What Triggers Cold Sores
Recurrence can be triggered by:
- Viral infection
- Fatigue or stress
- Hormonal changes
- Injury to the skin
Try Home Remedies
Unfortunately, there’s no cure for cold sores, and it can take between two to four weeks for a cold sore to heal on its own. But, there are things you can do to make them go away faster. When used early, there are several remedies that can help ease the pain and reduce swelling — and may even shorten the duration of a cold sore:
- Cold, damp washcloth
- Ice or cold compress
- Topical Ointments (Soothing Skin Ointment)
- Pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen
