What is a Cold Sore?
Before you can learn benefit from painless cold sore removal, you should know if you even have one to begin with. Cold sores, or fever blisters, are a common oral issue. They are red blisters or bumps around the mouth or lips. They form due to the oral form of the herpes simplex virus. The virus is so contagious that about 67% of the population of the world have had contact with the virus. For many, the virus remains dormant and they never realize they have contact. For others, a cold sore appears when the virus is active. Having a cold sore isn’t dangerous, but those with one should avoid kissing infants and small children until it clears up.
