About Cold Sores

Cold Sores: What they feel like


Early Warnings Signs

You likely know what it feels like – the tingling, the itching, the burning before it starts. These are the early warning signs of a cold sore. Next, small blisters appear, usually around the mouth. Eventually, they break open (and can be very painful) before crusting over. A cold sore usually lasts about 1 to 2 weeks.

The best time to begin treatment with Xerese is when you feel the early warning signs.

What other symptoms should you know about?

Other Symptoms You should know

When you have a cold sore, you can also have other symptoms, like pain and swelling at the site of the cold sore. If it’s your first outbreak, you can have “flu-like” symptoms, including fever, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, and swollen lymph nodes.

“I feel a cold sore coming on.”

Trust your gut. And treat it right away, such as with Xerese cream. Treating a cold sore early is proven to make it less likely to become worse (ulcerate).
