The so-called cold sores is a viral infection due to local activation of the herpes simplex virus 1.
It shows itself with small whitish/yellowish vesicles (with or without border of erythema), filled with serum. The associated cardinal symptoms are burning and soreness.
Most herpetic recurrences occur in the perioral area (vermilion or lip commissures), nasal mucosa or skin of the nose, hard palate mucosa, or in the vicinity of the eye.
The micro trauma of needle insertion acts as a trigger for virus activation (in predisposed subjects). Precisely for this reason, patients with a history of cold sores should be prescribed preventive antiherpetic devices as prophylaxis before treatment, especially when this concerns the areas most at risk.
