Cold Sores

Cold Sores, Fever Blisters, Oral Herpes

Cold sores are a lifetime threat. That is, once the herpes simplex virus is contracted, there is no known way to eliminate the herpes simplex virus from the body. Keep in mind that everybody carries viruses every day. There are many strains and types of viruses such as viruses that cause the common cold and flu. As with the cold sores virus, our body, when healthy, will keep these viruses under control or "latent". Your body builds anti-bodies that act as defense soldiers. When you are medically tested to see if you carry the cold sores virus, they take a blood sample and look for these anti-bodies. If you have the anti-bodies, whether you actually get cold sores or not, it means that you were infected at one time and carry the cold sores virus.
