Cold Sores

Cold sores ARE caused by the herpes simplex virus. However, there are 2 (two) types of herpes virus; HSV-1, which typically causes infection in or around the mouth and nose, and HSV-2, which usually causes genital herpes. However, it is important to note that it is possible for both type 1 and type 2 to cause sores in the genital area.
Cold sores affect a large amount of the population, with over 75% of adults have been exposed to the virus at some time in their life.
