Cold sores or fever blisters are caused by a virus. A
small painful fluid-filled lesion appears around the mouth or nose.
These can be accompanied by a fever or a cold. Repeated attacks may be
caused by exposure to wind, sun, during the course of other infections
or in association with a menstrual period.
Cold sores are caused by Herpes
Simplex Virus Type 1 (HSV-1). Both HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be spread
even if sores are not present. A herpes virus can be transferred to other
parts of the body. The HSV-1 can be transferred to the genital area
through oral sex. It can be spread through kissing or sharing objects
such as toothbrushes or eating utensils.
Genital herpes is caused by the Herpes simplex virus type
2 (HSV-2). It is a sexual transmitted infection characterized by painful
eruptions on the skin and mucous membrane of the genital area. It is
transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. HSV-2 can be transferred to
the mouth and infect it through oral sex. Although HSV-2 sores may occur
in other locations, these sores usually are found below the waist.
Once, infected the virus remains in the body in a dormant stage until
something triggers it to become active again. The virus only creates
problems when it enters the blood stream. Pregnant women with genital herpes
should talk to their doctor as genital herpes can be passed on to the baby
There are two stages to a herpes breakout:
asymptomatic. During the first genital herpes outbreak
(prodromal stage) small clusters of
white blisters may occur on the vagina, cervix, penis and anus.
The blisters break and leave tender sores.
Other symptoms include pain, fever, itching, burning and
swelling of the lymph nodes in the inguinal area.
During the asymptomatic stage, the herpes virus is dormant in
the nerve cell. At times, the herpes virus can reactivate and move to the
surface of the skin without causing any symptoms. This is called asymptomatic viral shedding.
The infection can still be transmitted even
if there is no visible symptom. Once the virus reactivates, it
can cause herpes recurrence.
