What is a cold sore?
Cold sore is a viral infection which is manifested by the appearance of a painful blister. It most often appears in the area around the lips, nose and chin. Cold sores are filled with fluid, which becomes cloudy after several days. After the blister of the cold sore bursts, the fluid dries out and creates an unpleasant scab.
In case of proper treatment the cold sore should heal without leaving a scar. If the cold sore is treated in an improper and thoughtless way, the healing process is longer and can result in painful pustule.
