Dental Cases

    Herpes or COLD Sore

    A small sore located on the face or in the mouth that causes pain, burning, or itching before bursting and crusting over. Common locations for cold sores are the lips, chin, cheeks, and nostrils. Cold sores more rarely appear on the gums and the roof of the mouth. Herpes is caused by a virus called Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-1) that stays forever dormant in the body and is reawakened by factors such as stress, sunburn, or fever from a wide range of infectious diseases, including colds.

    Unlike the canker sore, the cold sore is highly contagious when the blisters are present.

    It is spread by physical contact, like kissing or any contact with contaminated saliva.

    Early symptoms are burning, itching, or tingling at the site where blisters will form.

    There is no cure for herpes virus infections. Antiviral drugs are available that have some effect on lessening the symptoms and decreasing the length of herpes outbreaks.

    Laser treatment will help reducing the discomfort and shortening the outbreak duration.
