Now that the weather has grown cold, people who suffer from oral herpes, characterized by cold sores and blisters, may start to experience problems. Oral herpes are the result of a DNA virus that causes sores in and around the mouth, and is responsible for 80 percent of oral herpes cases. Recently, EmpowHer published an article on how these blisters develop.
According to the news source, if people find that their mouths are burning, itching or tingling, then they may have a cold sore coming on. Other early symptoms may include fever, pain while swallowing, swollen glands and a sore throat.
Cold sores can appear on the gums, lips mouth or throat so people should look for these symptoms anywhere in or around their mouths.
The Mayo Clinic states that applying ice or cold water to cold sores may help ease the symptoms. There are also many over the counter medications available that are designed to help reduce cold sores. People should ask their dentist for other tips on how to deal with cold sores and how to avoid spreading them to others.
