Cold sores might appear just once in a person's life, or recur off and on. They mostly affect the superficial nerves.
The triggering factors can be;
    • Stress and strain,
    • A cold, fever, or the flu.
    • Hormonal changes, such as during menstruation or pregnancy.
    • Trauma such as shaving.
Antiviral medications, such as acyclovir can be helpful by slowing down the replication of the virus.
