what causes A cold Sore? - Important Things That You Must Know!

A: Many people ask what causes a cold sore. The truth is, there is only one cause of these sores, and that is the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1). The virus remains in the body after its invasion and the sore outbreaks themselves are caused by many different factors. Usually, a sufferer gets infected during their childhood.

The person can transmit this infection when he/she has active sores, but there are cases when the person can transmit the infection even if the virus is dormant. This is because it can be present even in the saliva. After the virus enters the body, it travels...

Also this seems crazy but if you can take a piece of garlic and cut it then hold it on your sons cheek when he''s asleep it''s possible if his little body did get some of the infected cells the virus will be killed before it ravages his body and leaves him with a lifetime of hassle. Garlic works, I use it for this. GOOD LUCK MOM they can also be stress induced...and also too much acidity in the foods they eat I don''t think so, but I would stay away anyway. cold sores CAN be transferred when the person does not have an...

Hormonal contraceptives can actually suppress your immune system. This is not very common, but does happen. When a virus is introduced into your body your immune systems combats. When your immune system is lowered you will experience more activity of the virus, because it is not being suppressed i.e. cold sores.     The next cause would be that you have had another strain of the virus introduced. The strain that normal causes
