Fever, along with making a person lethargic, can leave you uncomfortable and in pain. One of the indications is the appearance of cold sores. These are small blisters that are caused by the herpes virus that become visible on lips and around the mouth. These sores are spread when a person touches someone after touching the affected area, kisses the person, shares eating utensils, or shares razor. The sores may disappear on their own within two weeks; however, for rapid action, cold sore laser treatment proves effective.
Effects of Cold Sores
Cold sores, even if these appear to be small in size, are fluid-filled blisters that can be painful and irritating. You may also have cold sore scars once the blisters heal. Before the sores start appearing on the skin, these show various warning signs, and a person who frequently gets the sores can identify the symptoms easily. The following signs may be apparent:
- Pain or itching around lips and mouth
- Sore throat
- Swollen glands around the neck
It is to be remembered that if you are affected once with the herpes virus, it remains in the body and will keep appearing time and again, and you would need to learn to live with them. However, treatment can reduce the number of cold sores and their effects.
