What are cold sores?

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.

Even though no cure exists for the cold sore virus, Park Dentistry in Park Slope, Brooklyn can provide you with antiviral medication to control the outbreaks and relieve any pain or irritation you are experiencing. You can also avoid developing cold sores by avoiding sharing utensils and drinking cups with others that may be infected.
