If you have cold sores--you DO have herpes. You have Herpes Simplex Virus-1 (HSV-1, oral herpes/cold sores/fever blisters). They are all the same thing.
You are harboring the virus--it lives in nerves beneath your ears. Occasionally, it will pop out as a cold sore. The virus spreads easily--because the fluid in the cold sore is loaded with the virus, so if you touch the blister with your fingers or it touches another area of your lips, chin, nostrils, eyes, you can spread it there.
Chances are you have had it since you were a kid. We get it when someone kisses us or sharing toys, foods, drinks with playmates/schoolmates. About 80% of the population does test positive for it, 56% of teens do, and by age 50, 90% of people do.
Just treat it as you did the other, but never, ever, ever touch the sore with your fingers! Always use a Q-tip. That will help keep the virus from spreading.

Cold sores are an unfortunate part of many peoples' lives (including mine). The problem with cold sores is that they live in your nerves when you aren't experiencing an outbreak. This means that your body never fully gets rid of the virus so you can only treat the outbreaks or try to prevent them. The reason you are having a major problem with them right now is probably due to stress. Some people think its an old wives tale that cold sores break out from stress but that's just not true. Stress leaves your body in a compromised state giving the cold sore virus the perfect opportunity to strike. My best suggestion for you is to try to relax and minimize your stress levels and in the mean time load on the abreva.
Also cold sores are herpes. Herpes has come to have a negative stigma attached to it from the STD of the same name. They are two different forms of the herpes virus and unfortunately they look very similar. You can get cold sores from kissing an infected person (just like the STD of the same name) but the problem goes back to the fact that you have the virus for life once you have it. You could have gotten in years ago from someone that didn't even show symptoms.

There are two types of herpes simplex virus: HSV-1 and HSV-2. Both virus types can cause sores around the mouth (herpes labialis) and on the genitals (genital herpes). Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV).
Cold sores sometimes called fever blisters, are groups of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth. The skin around the blisters is often red, swollen, and sore. The blisters may break open, leak a clear fluid, and then scab over after a few days. They usually heal in several days to 2 weeks.
The herpes simplex virus usually enters the body through a break in the skin around or inside the mouth. It is usually spread when a person touches a cold sore or touches infected fluid—such as from sharing eating utensils or razors, kissing an infected person, or touching that person's saliva. A parent who has a cold sore often spreads the infection to his or her child in this way. Cold sores can also be spread to other areas of the body.

You've received great explanations and advice regarding cold sores.
Herpecin L and other OTC medications help.
You may ask your doctor about a prescription.
Boy, I get them too and I will tell you when I'm stressed
and when I have a cold, I'm guaranteed a cold sore or two.
Basically, I try to limit events that stress me out and stay
away from sick people. Yes, easier said then done. Good Luck.

I got diagnosed with herpes type 2 about seven years ago, when I was still in college and had a spupid one-night stand. I know a lot of girls will say this but I swear I never did that sort of thing. I jud made mistake that one time and, suddenly, it seemed like I was going to have to live with the consequences for the rest of my life. The worst part was feeling I could never date guys again. After all, who wants to go out with a girl who has sores around her you-know-what? But after a friend share this video https://tr.im/AGS5h everything has changed. Not only was I able to remove all traces of the herpes virus from my system in less than three weeks, but I was also able to start dating again. I even met the man of my dreams and I`m so blessed to write that just last week, in fornt of everyone in a crowded restaurant, he got down on one knee and proposed to me!! This program gave me back the change to be happy, and to experience true love. Now I want to help you share this the world.
