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.
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.
Herpes infections are caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2. These viruses are contagious, and can be easily transmitted from one person to another via skin-to-skin contact. Kissing or touching is the main cause of oral herpes transmission.
Cold sores are blisters that appear around your mouth and are caused by the herpes simplex 1 virus. Symptoms of cold sores usually start 2-12 days after becoming infected and last an average of 7-10 days.
Symptoms of cold sores may include:
– Itching, tingling, burning, or pain before a sore appears
– Blisters which start as small, shallow, gray ulcers on a red base, later becoming crusted, scabbed, dry, and yellow
– Sores may appear on the lips, gums, nose, front of the tongue, inside cheeks, the throat, the roof of the mouth, fingers, chin, or neck
– Bleeding gums which are red or swollen
– Painful, swollen lymph nodes in neck
– A grayish coating on the tonsils and a sore throat with shallow ulcers
