How Coldsores Spread

They can spread from one person to another when a person touches a cold sore or touches infected fluid- such as from sharing eating utensils, food or razors, kissing an infected person, or touching that person's saliva. The sores are contagious even when they aren't visible and they may be spread even when they can't be seen. 

Mouth cold sores

Cold sores begin with a tingling or burning sensation on your lips or face before developing into a raised, red blister that contains fluid. After contacting the virus, the first cold sore may not appear for up to 20 days. It is usually painful and sensitive to touch. It is also possible that more than one sore is present.

The cold sore will usually remain for at least two weeks and will be contagious until it crusts over. Aside from the blister, you may also experience other symptoms during an outbreak, such as fever, muscle aches and swollen lymph nodes.

Once you catch the herpes simplex virus, it can't be cured. Even after the sores are healed, the virus remains dormant in your body and new sores may appear at any time. People with the virus report more frequent outbreaks when their immune systems are weak, suffering from illness or at times when they are under stress.

Early warning signs of a cold sore

You may be able to feel a small bump or hardness on the skin, accompanied by a tingling or burning sensation on the lips or around the mouth area. Other early symptoms include itching of the lips or skin around the mouth, sore throat, swollen glands, pain when swallowing, or even fever.

Cold sore remedies

While there is no cure for cold sores, there are certain medications that can be used to treat cold sores and help prevent them from coming back.  You can also support your body with certain vitamins and supplements and other practices to help strengthen the immune system and reduce your susceptibility to a cold sore outbreak.

Ointments and Creams

Antiviral ointments and creams can be an effective way to relieve the skin especially if they're applied when a sore first appears. Most of the time, the ointments are applied four to five times per day for four to five days.

Medications

There are oral antiviral medications that may contain Acyclovir, Valacyclovir and Famciclovir that can help treat cold sores. Antiviral medications can be used when experiencing complications with cold sores or if your outbreaks are frequent.

Vitamins

Some vitamins contain potent antioxidants that have natural antiviral properties. They help strengthen the body's immune function and reduce susceptibility to infections. These include Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Vitamin D.

Home remedies

There are simple remedies that can be found at home to help alleviate the discomfort of cold sores such as applying ice or washcloths soaked in cold water over the sores. Other options are to take lysine supplements or using lip balm containing lemon extract to help with the sore.  

How to avoid the herpes simplex virus

Prevent contact with infected body fluids, usually through eating or sharing of food with a person who has the virus.
Do not share eating utensils, drinking cups, or other items that a person with a cold sore may have used.
Do not share towels, razors, silverware, toothbrushes, or other objects from a person with a cold sore.

More cold sore tips

  • Avoid things that trigger your cold sores, such as stress, colds or the flu.
  • Reduce exposure to sunlight since cold sores tend to flare with sunlight. If unavoidable, use lip balm and sunscreen.
  • Wash your hands often, and try not to touch the sore to keep it from spreading to other parts of the body.
  • Consult your doctor if you have a poor immune system or experience a particularly severe outbreak lasting more than 2 weeks, a fever that won't go down or irritation of the eyes.
