A cold-sore is apparently caused by the 'Herpes Simplex' virus(HSV1), which remains in the system and is highly contagious via saliva during kissing or actually making contact with the erupted sore!

It can be sparked through stress, hormones or a sudden change in body temperature.

As viruses thrive in heat, the best treatment I have found is the application of ice to the affected area, as soon a tingle is felt.

If the sore has erupted, dose orally with Lysine Powder and apply Manuka Honey to the sore( both available from local health-shops ).
