I hope your sitting down because your not going to like this.

Cold sores are caused by a virus and are spread by kissing or by clothing. Cold sores are usually caused by herpes type 1 and is a cousin of the famous herpes type 2 that you read about in health class. Like the herpes virus, type 1 is contagious, and like the herpes virus, type 1 never really goes away. Once you have it, you have it for life. Outbreaks will occur when the the virus numbers are high enough.

Docosanol 10% cream is an over the counter product that has been shown to help.

Sorry
