Oral herpes have been exposed to over eighty percent of the American population.  When a person is exposed an incubation period occurs that lasts around one to two weeks.

Then you will feel a tingling or burning stage on the face near the mouth region.  The skin will become red and swollen and can last anywhere from just a couple hours to a week.

As the swelling occurs the virus will move more rapidly and will infect the nerve endings.  Your body will then try to fight off the virus, this will last about a day.

Soon you will see red spots and they will become filled with fluid forming blisters or lesions.  They will be very painful and sore to the touch.  The blisters are hard and not filled with infection yet.  This pre-lesion stage lasts about one to two days.

The worst part is when the blisters break open.  The puss and fluid are released, this normally lasts another day.  The sores are very painful to the touch.  You need to take the most precautions at this stage, as this is when you are the most contagious.  You may also have a fever and swollen lymph nodes.

When your lesions start to heal they will begin to crust over.  It takes about three days for the crust to form over the lesions.  The crust will be yellowish in color, be careful not to break open the crusted lesions as this is very painful.  It may be hard not to break them open because of facial movements and eating.

Now the healing begins and the virus will go back into its dormant stage.  As with all healing, you may want to scratch as the area will be very itchy.  Try to refrain as this may keep the area from healing faster.

The duration of herpes bucal can last about two weeks.  If you would like to end your battle with these herpes outbreaks, click here for more details.

    How do I know if my blisters are healing?? I know it is supposed to take a couple weeks, but what if it is longer than that?

    • Randi says:

      Normally your lesions will crust over and start to heal in about 2 weeks. If they are not healing, try some antibiotic ointment as they might have gotten infected. Check the site for other ways to dry up your lesions.
