Q:

How does a person get a cold sore?

A:

A cold sore, also called a fever blister, happens when an infection breaks out near the mouth that is caused by a virus. The virus is the Herpes Simplex I or II virus, and you can get a cold sore from direct contact with someone who has an outbreak of the virus at that time. There is some new research which shows that the Herpes Simplex virus may be transmitted by someone who has it, even if they aren't having an active outbreak.
