How To Remember Recurrent oral herpes Signs & Symptoms ?

Recurrent  oral herpes, a viral infection of the mouth and lips, are quite frequent. Herpes simplex virus type 1 causes fever blisters and cold sores to appear in the mouth and elsewhere.

The painful sores and ulcers caused by recurrent oral herpes begin with a tingling or burning sensation before the blisters or sores really materialise. These wounds usually mend in a matter of weeks.

It is possible to contract recurrent oral herpes via coming into touch with the sores themselves, or by coming into contact with saliva or other bodily fluids that have been contaminated by the infected person. Oral-genital and genital-genital contact are also transmission routes.


The signs and symptoms of recurrent oral herpes may include:

  1. Tingling or burning sensation in the affected area before the appearance of blisters or sores
  2. Small, fluid-filled blisters that break open and form painful ulcers
  3. Swelling and redness in the affected area
  4. Fever, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue in severe cases
  5. Pain or difficulty swallowing in severe cases
