If someone gets cold sores, does that mean, that they have herpes?

Uh no way...
U need to study on that or ask ur doctor.
Trust me no

No bacause sometimes when you catch a cold your lips become very chapped and can open a wound. As for herpes, people just use the term "cold sore" just because the breakout is located on the lip. If you really do some research, you would be able to tell between an actual cold sore, rather than a herpes breakout.

Yes but it is a different type. I believe it is hereditary

Yes. Just like many other "her" disasters (i.e. her-ricanes), her-pes can create havoc on a man's lips.

Yes it does mean they have herpes. However its NOT the same as gential herpes. Chicken pox is also a form of herpes.

Not all cold sores are caused by the herpes virus, I have checked in to this for my cousin, dr. says that it is sometimes caused by the herpes virus, however, it can be caused by an bacterial infection. Call your doctor or ask your local pharmacist, it depends on how bad they are.

it is a type of herpes, not the same as the std herpes.

its a form of herpes.. & u have it for life.

yup,....You don't have to have a lot of intimate contact with a person. You can just peck your kids on the cheek and expose
them to it.... :(

No, My grandpa just went to las vegas and it was really hot and he is used to ohio weather and from the heat up there he got cold sores...it dont mean anything!

connie o
Yes type one virus.

Sarah Silverman LOVER
you know it's funny, there is a type 1 and type 2, but on TV show (dateline or something), were talking about college kids, and one guy got type 2 on his lips or mouth from his girlfriend (go figure) LOL

chris f
yes, cold sores are caused by the herpes virus. valtrex is a presciption the helps with breakouts

Cold sores are a relative of the Herpes simplex virus. No, it is not true herpes like that strain transmitted as a STD. It's very common. Treat it symtematically with over the counter meds. If you suffer a bad or continuious outbreak, see your doc for stronger meds.

Yes. Herpes Type I is responsible for outbreaks of cold sores around the mouth. They are usually brought on by stress or illness, and are highly contageous until they scab over completely. Once you have herpes you can't cure it.

It is a form of herpes, yes.

&hearts stef
Yes. Cold sores are the oral form of herpes.

But it isn't as serious. In fact like 50-80% of adults have it.

Most people don't even know they have it!

What Causes Cold Sores?

Cold sores are caused by a virus called herpes (say: hur-peez). Herpes is one of the most common viral infections in the world. The medical name for the specific virus that causes cold sores is herpes simplex.

There are two types of herpes simplex infection: herpes simplex virus one (called HSV-1 for short) and herpes simplex virus two (called HSV-2 for short). Although both can cause cold sores around a person's mouth, most are caused by HSV-1.

HSV-1 is so common that most Americans get infected with it, although many never have any symptoms. People can catch HSV-1 by kissing a person with a cold sore or sharing a drinking glass or utensils, so it's easy to see why there are so many cold sores around.

Kids who get infected with HSV-1 may get cold sores occasionally for the rest of their lives That's because even after the sores themselves dry up and go away, the virus stays in the body, waiting around for another time to come out and cause more sores. When a cold sore reappears, it is often in the same place as the previous one.
