Cold Sore
  • Overview of Cold Sore
    • A cold sore is caused by a contagious virus called herpes simplex virus that causes the development of painful sores outside, inside, on, or around the lips. In most cases, cold sores will go away on their own in a few weeks. However, in severe cases, you may contact your physician or make an appointment at the Student Health Services here.
