Hi Cold sores (or herpes labialis) are caused by Herpes virus , they are associated with colds and upper respiratory infections . Usually they are left to resolve spontaneously ,however Acyclovir gel can be used to hasten recovery (Acyclovir is an antiviral specific for Herpes virus )

I'm pinoy and I'm from Palawan but currently residing in Thailand. Not much of a mountaineer but I've been to Mt. Makiling 2x and other mountains in Benguet. Too bad I didn't get a chance to hike Mt. Pulag when I was there. I also failed to hike Mt. Banahaw when I worked in Lucban. But yea, I want to be a mountaineer. I'm looking for companions here in Thailand.
