Cold sores are a widespread complication that we treat at our homoeopathy clinic in Aurangabad. Many causes can lead you to cold sores infection. But you should get a proper cold sores treatment in Aurangabad to prevent prolonged suffering.
Herpes Simplex, also known as cold sores, is caused by a viral infection. Itching, burning blisters appear on the lips, but they may also appear within the mouth or nostrils or on the chin or cheeks.
There may be a crusty patch of broken skin after the blisters split, leading to secondary infection.
Stress, exhaustion, hormonal changes, emotional trauma, sun exposure, and a generally compromised immune system are common causes of the cold sore.
Let us see the symptoms of cold sores:
In most cases, a cold sore goes through several stages; these include-
Itching and tingling:
For a day or more, you may experience itchiness, burning, or tingling around your lips until a small, hard, painful spot appears and blisters erupt.
Usually, small fluid-filled blisters erupt around your lip's edge. They can appear around your nose, on the cheeks, or even within your mouth.
Oozing and crusting:
These small blisters can swell together and then burst, leaving open sores that can bleed and crust over.
Based on whether this is the first infection or a recurrence, the symptoms will differ. Symptoms of a cold sore may take up to 20 days to appear after you have been exposed to the infection for the first time. The blisters can take two to three weeks to recover fully, and the sores can last several days.
What are the causes of developing cold sores?
Since the infection quickly spreads by contact with contaminated body fluids, cold sores are more infectious with oozing blisters. Many individuals who are afflicted with the cold sore virus never show any signs or symptoms.
After the cold sore infection, the virus remains inactive of nerve cells in the skin and may reappear in the same location as before. The following factors can cause recurrence:
- Fever or viral infection
- Abnormal hormonal changes
- Fatigue due to Stress
- Sunlight and wind exposure
- Immune system alterations
- Skin injury
