What are cold sores? Cold sores (or fever blisters) are a common viral infection that impacts millions of Americans. Cold sores are tiny blisters that appear in and around your lips, often grouped together in patches. Cold sores can spread through close contact, like kissing, sharing a glass, and more. Cold sores are part of the herpes simplex virus family and are typically caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), although some cold sores can be caused by herpex simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). While there is no cure for cold sores, treatment can help manage your condition and reduce the severity, length, and frequency of outbreaks.

About cold sores
Cold sores are a common viral infection that causes patches of tiny, fluid-filled blisters to form on and around the lips. A scab forms when the blisters split, which might last several days. Cold sores normally heal themselves, without leaving a scar, in two to three weeks. While there is no cure for cold sores, various treatments can help manage outbreaks.
