What is a Cold Sore?

Cold sores are a common nuisance. Although there is no cure for the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) that causes them, cold sore breakouts can be managed and avoided. Cold sores, sometimes called fever blisters, appear around the lips and mouth and are often associated with red, swollen, and irritated skin around the breakout areas.

Treatment for Cold Sores

There is no cure for cold sores; however, Bart L. Poer, DDS, Melissa, Dental Assistant, Angie, Business Assistant, Amanda, Business Assistant can prescribe the use of medications that can be useful for their treatment and prevention. Although none of these medications will eliminate the dormant HSV-1 infection that causes cold sores, they can help the sores heal faster and relieve the associated pain and discomfort. They also can help to suppress a cold-sore outbreak. If you are suffering from a cold sore and need cold sore treatment, call Perfect Smiles Dental Care now.
