Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of oral herpes?
If you have oral herpes, your symptoms will usually be cold sores which may come and go. Sores may show up on the lips, gums, nose, the front of the tongue, cheeks, throat, roof of the mouth, fingers, chin, or neck. Blisters which begin as small, shallow, gray ulcers on a red base and then become crusted, scabbed, dry, and yellow. The cold sores will go away on their own within a few weeks, but medication can speed up that process.
How long does oral herpes last?
There is no cure for herpes, but antiviral drugs, which may be administered as pills, creams, or intravenously, help speed up the healing process. Cold sores last a few weeks and then go away on their own but medication can accelerate the process and keep cold sores from appearing for longer periods of time.

Oral herpes is a common infection that affects more than half of all Americans. It can be painful and bothersome, but usually does not lead to serious health problems.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor.
He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins.
Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day.
I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
