What can be done about my cold sore?

A cold sore, which is also called a fever blister or herpes simplex, is a blister that usually is seen around the lips and nose. They are very contagious and can spread to any other soft tissue in your body. You should be very careful not to share cups and washcloths when experiencing them. Change your toothbrush as soon as it has resolved. They typically last for 10 days and can be brought on by any stressor in your life: too much sun, wind, stress or being run down.

Dr. Worsley can recommend some of the better "over-the-counter" aids that have some proven effectiveness or if required, prescribe antiviral drugs to decrease the duration and occurrence of the viral infections.
