It can be embarrassing when a cold sore (also known as a fever blister) rears its ugly head. Even if you try to cover it up you know it’s still noticeable. If you are someone who deals with this issue rather frequently then you may be looking for ways to reduce the frequency and severity of your symptoms. Cold sores, which are caused by the herpes simplex virus, can never be cured; however, this doesn’t mean that you can’t manage your symptoms. The experts at Bagoff Dental Arts can help.
