Cold Sores

Cold sores are common infections caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1). Most people get infected during childhood, and more than half of Americans ages 14 to 49 have cold sores.

The bad news is: cold sores are not curable.

The good news is: outbreaks can be treated with medication.
