(What exactly is oral herpes)

(HSV-1 Herpes Simplex Virus-1)

-WHAT TO LOOK FOR-

`INCUBATION PERIOD: For HSV-1, the amount of time between meeting of the virus and the show of symptoms, (the incubation period) is 2 to 11 days. Most people ordinarily show about 2 to 6 days

`CONTINUATION OF ILLNESS: Signs, symptoms tend to last 1 1/2 to 3 weeks (alleviating time). Muscle aches, fever, fatigue and cantankerous behavior could surface in certain individuals.

*Aching lips, pain,,flaming sensation, tingling, or itching happens prior to the sores appearance. These are the embryonic symptoms, (prodromal). Sometimes these symptoms occur before the appearance of the sores, bumps or pimple like lesions, or blisters. ( herpes or herpetic stomatitis).

Soon after clumps or groups of hurting blisters (also termed fever blisters) or vesicles overflow or leak with a clear to yellowish liquid that can turn into a crust. These blisters crash quickly and become visible as tiny simplistic gray abscesses on a red foundation. Fever blisters are slightly smaller than would be a canker sore.

Couple days later they scab over and dry out becoming more yellow.
