When To Get Help
Always consult your doctor to get a definite diagnosis. You should get further medical help if the eyes seem to be affected - which is sometimes the case; or if there is a fever, or if the sores become infected with pus and are very red and painful. You should also tell your doctor if your child suffers from repeated cold sore eruptions.
Encephalitis can be used by the herpes simplex 1 virus. (If your child contracts encephalitis) tell your doctor that your child suffers from cold sores.
If you or your child has a cold sore:
Don't share washcloths, sponges, towels, cups, glasses, or eating utensils.
Try to prevent your child from touching the cold sore
Change pillows or bed linen every day to prevent cross-infection.
If hot weather makes the cold sore erupt, use double the amount of sunscreen, particularly on the lips.
