Celebrity Cold Sores: Katie Holmes

According to the Mayo Clinic, cold sores are closely related to genital herpes and can be spread through kissing and oral sex. Antiviral medications can help heal a cold sore, a process that takes up to two weeks.

Cold sores are typically dormant, and it’s believed that stress, chocolate, the menstrual cycle, caffeine and a weakened immune system are all culprits that can lead to an outbreak.

Cold sores can happen to anybody, says the Mayo Clinic, “about 90 percent of adults worldwide — even those who’ve never had symptoms of an infection — test positive for evidence of the virus that causes cold sores.”

Here are a few celebrities who were snapped out and about with an imperfect pout.

    I got diagnosed with herpes type 2 about five years ago, when I was still in college and had a stupid one night affair. I am sure a lot of women will say this but believe me I never did that sort of thing. I jus made mistake that one time and, suddenly, it looked like I was going to have to live with the burden for the rest of my life.

    The worst part was feeling I could never date guys again. After all, who wants to go out with a girl who has blisters around her you-know-what?

    But after a friend share this video https://tr.im/Treatmentsherpes24vv , everything has changed. Not only was I able to get rid of all traces of the herpes virus from my system in less than twenty days, but I was also able to start dating again. I even met the man of my dreams and I’m so happy to say that just last week, in fornt of everyone in a crowded restaurant, he got down on one knee and proposed to me! This program gave me the chance to be happy again, and to experience true love.
