Herpes simplex is often referred to as “cold sores” or “fever blisters,” and it is a common viral infection. Herpes simplex viruses are very contagious, even before sores appear, and they can easily pass from person to person via physical contact or simply sharing a straw. While some people suffer from herpes simplex symptoms after over exposure to the sun and stress, some people have recurrent fever blister outbreaks that are not only uncomfortable to deal with but also cause them feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta we can offer you effective herpes treatment solutions.
Dr. Jamie Weisman is a nationally recognized board certified dermatologist who is committed to researching progressive treatments for all kinds of skin conditions. With her qualified team of skin care experts, Dr. Weisman offers each patient an individualized treatment plan to stop his or her herpes outbreaks. Most patients can be treated with antiviral medications that can shorten an outbreak and relieve the burning, itching, and discomfort of cold sores. Not only does Medical Dermatology Specialists offer treatment, but we also diagnose the contributing factors of herpes outbreaks to help patients find long-term prevention.
Because the herpes simplex virus is extremely contagious, it is very helpful that patients receive treatment as soon as possible. This will help lessen the chance of passing the virus onto others, and it will also lessen the length of time that the outbreak lasts. If you are tired of suffering from recurring fever blisters, contact Medical Dermatology Specialists today. We are dedicated to helping you feel better and love the skin you’re in.Posted on behalf of Dr. Jamie Weisman, Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc.
