Can The Herpes Around The Mouth Leave Scars?
, will the herpes around the mouth leave scars? If so, can the marks be lost? What are the medicines to cure cold sores?
Herpes around the mouth is caused due to a viral infection. Herpes can be herpes simplex (sexually transmitted disease) or herpes zoster (reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox). Herpes treatment is with antivirals and drugs to reduce symptoms such as painkillers and antihistamines.
For used, this depends on the conditions of each individual. Even if they leave scars, generally the herpes marks will fade over time. Doctors can provide follow-up care to help speed up the fading of the herpes scars.
If you experience symptoms of herpes, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done and you can be given proper follow-up treatment. The most important thing is treatment for herpes first, then treatment for the scars.
Meanwhile you can also do the following tips:
Cold compress if heroes wound is painful
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Avoid foods that are too warm, spicy, salty, and sour for a while
Try to use your own cutlery and cosmetics, don't take turns while the wound is still active
Get enough rest
