Cold Soars begin with a small red patch in your mouth. A sort of blister develops inside your mouth and then it bursts and leaves a raw patch which starts to heal and a scab forms.
Some possible Symptoms of an oral herpes infection are
– blisters between your lip and surrounding skin
– blisters on the inside of your mouth
– swollen gums
– sore throat
– swollen glands
– bad breath
– flu type symptoms (headache, shivers)
You can sometimes tell when a cold soar is about to emerge if you get a tingling sensation and a red swelling around your lip before. The blister that develops will crack open and develop a scab. The scab usually will fall off around one week later. Cold sores often reappear at the same place time and time again.
