Cold Sores Affect Millions

Cold sores affect an estimated 40 million Americans each year with a rate of frequency which varies from rare episodes to 12 or more recurrences per year. Most sufferers experience one to three attacks annually. The frequency and severity of outbreaks generally decreases over time.30%-60% of children below 10 years of age are infected with HSV-1. They have acquired the virus from family and friends through sharing utensils or toothbrushes and from kissing. The virus is transmitted from cold sores and also when there are no symptoms, as it can make copies of itself on the skin in the absence of a blister. This phenomenon is called “asymptomatic shedding.” By 50 years of age, 80%-90% of adults harbour HSV-1 because they have caught it from someone close to them. Credit wikipedia
