Herpes is an inflammatory disorder of the skin or mucous membranes that occurs with small fluid-filled blisters that produce some itching and burning. It usually affects the genitals and lips. For cold sores treatment depends on the severity of the case, which may require the application of topical or oral medications to fight the virus. Although apparently physically eliminate herpes, the virus stays in the body for life and under certain circumstances, which are still unknown, will reappear. In addition to skin symptoms, usually cause pain, fever and malaise. For this type of herpes treatment usually includes the use of painkillers and topical antivirals and analgesics for pain relief.
