How Long Does It Take The Cold Sore Virus To Leave Your Body? - Best Cold Sore Treatments Options

I got a cold sore (due to fever) on Thursday. The blister has disappeared. I have a date with my boyfriend on Tuesday, it is an important date to us and I think he may want to kiss me. So, my hopes are that the virus isn't contagious anymore. He does know that I had a cold sore in the past week. Does anyone know how long does it take the cold sore virus to leave your body after it has healed?

If you are also wondering this, then here is a response to this question: Cold sores are caused by the virus known as herpes simplex type I (HSV-1). After the first episode of the disease, the virus lies dormant in the nerves or skin around the original area until something sets the virus off into another eruption. Colds, flu, and even stress can cause you to have an outbreak of cold sores. Why you have an outbreak at one time of life and not another is not clearly understood.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Cold sore -- put salt & toothpaste on it? PLEASE ANSWER. D':?
    I woke up one morning and I had a cold sore on my lip. I heard that using toothpaste mixed with salt works. I used it today, and put it on for an hour then wiped it off. It didn't really work (it wasn't tried up). I then put carmex on it.

    Did I do this right?
    Please help. ):

    • ANSWER:
      Put the salt or toothpaste every 30Min's to1hr(it sucks but it really does work) it should go away in a day or 2 oh and at night put on the carmex on before you go to sleep.Trust me .

  2. QUESTION:
    Cold Sore Remedy- Salt?
    Hi, I have a huge cold sore on my lip. I get them so often >.< (about once a month, or once every two months). My mom's a bit superstitious and she believes that putting salt on it helps, but putting salt on it hurt likes hell. Does putting salt on a cold sore actually make it go away or is it just an old wives tale? If you have any other suggestions for a cold sore remedy...that'd be great too :) Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Use icebags or teabags (:
      Hope you get better soon o(^w^)o

  3. QUESTION:
    HELP! is putting toothpaste on my cold sore on my lip a bad thing?
    I was going to try putting toothpaste and salt on my cold sore in the corner of my mouth/on my lip. And leave it on all night because i read somewhere it worked but i'm not sure if i want to try it in case my lip went swollen or it got worse...so if anyone has tried this or knows of anyone who has tried could you please tell me if it is a bad thing to do or if its good...thanks! :)

    • ANSWER:
      putting toothpaste on spots is ok but stings as it dries the spot out and the next day you can get rid of it but for open sores like cold sores it may sting and become irritated making the inflamation worse. just sleep with a load of vaseline on it thats what I do. Dont touch it too much either as it will irriate more.

      Hope this helpd.
