How to Identify Herpes Virus
Before the cold sore or blisters starts to form, a tingling sensation or itchiness will be experienced on the skin. This is a warning symptom; the individual will also notice that the skin around the itchy/tingling area may be inflamed or red. These symptoms will occur 1-2 days before the blister or cold sore appears. The next symptom experienced will be a cold sore or blister, which has fluid in it. The cold sore or blisters will normally leek or ulcerate, and forms a scab or a yellow crusting around the cold sore or blister.
This yellow crusting means that your cold sore is starting to heal, and thereafter disappears. The out break of the cold sore or blisters can last from 8 to 14 days. If the individual is infected with the HSV-2 virus, lesions can also occur around the anal region.
It is important to remember that with HSV-2 (genital herpes) even if there are no visible signs of blisters or shedding, the virus is still transmittable during unprotected sexual or oral intercourse.
