Cold sores most often can bug you with its characteristic effects similar to that of simplex type 1 (HSV-1) virus effects. Irrespective of its effect, a cold sore is always considered unwanted and ugly at the first point itself.
Cold sores, also known as oral herpes or fever blisters, appear as blisters filled with fluid similar to the way you see with the effects of HSV-1 virus.
Can they be prevented?
As is well known that Lindsay Lohan got her best career back and Paris Hilton never released another video on erotic nature, although there was no clear evidence on these, everything can usually be prevented from happening. But the effects of cold sores can definitely be prevented in the below-mentioned three important ways:
An anti-viral medication, changes in lifestyle, and a positive mindset actually acts as a good treatment for cold sores. The impact of cold sores extends till our nerves creating its root there and also affects our skin’s lower layer causing development of a prodromal stage where they create a burning and irritating sensation. If treatment is done at this stage itself, the sore can be prevented from thickening and affecting other parts of our body. Medication at this stage can also help the cold sore come out of the body completely without giving much pain for a long time. You, however, must take care of your health and hygiene aspects as well as develop knowledge about preventions of cold sores to implement as needed.
As a second possible approach, patients can take Acyclovir – also known as Zovirax – that is considered a very good medication against fever blisters. They reduce its tenure and gross effects. Acyclovir is available in both forms – oral medicine and ointment – both of which are considered to be useful medications for reducing the impacts of cold sores on your body in the future.
Besides medications, you should also be mentally strong, avoid unnecessary stress and illness, and also take care of every little thing related to wellness of your health so that you can prevent being a victim of cold sores.
