Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus. The virus enters the human body via any skin break found inside or around the mouth. Some of the symptoms accompanied by these cold sores include swollen glands, fever, sore throat and pain around the mouth.

Cold sores are caused by the Herpes Virus. Yes, the same virus that causes them on the privates but a little different strain. Stress often causes outbreaks but is not the cause. So, if you don't use creams or medicine for it, consider taking up meditation or yoga or something that will help you be less stressed.

sometimes...and now and then is causes me to mix up different things i read! lol but i knew this one 100% because a guy I kissed once got a cold sore and tried to say I gave it to him. problem with that is, I have never had a cold sore and on researching, found out it takes 2 weeks to show up and we had only kissed 3 days prior! Just glad I did not kiss him the night before because he could have spread them to me!

Cold sores are caused by Herpes Simplex Virus. They are tied in to your immune system. Once activated the host breaks out in lesions around the lips and mouth. Because it is a virus that is triggered by a virus you can't do too much to stop it. Eat healthy, take vitamin C to help fortify your system's defenses.
