Face Herpes - Symptoms And Early Signs
For others that are unsure or worried that they are experiencing tell-tale face herpes symptoms, here is a breakdown of what normally happens.
#1 The very first sign of an outbreak always starts with a tingling sensation in the area affected.
#2 This is followed by (or sometimes at the same time as the tingling) by the area beginning to itch, mildly at first, persisting to something you can't ignore.
#3 Shortly after, the area will become inflamed and red, with possibly the beginnings of blisters starting to appear.
#4 The blisters will fill with fluid and the area will become quite painful.
#5 The blisters will burst and a yellow scab will form.
#6 The skin will gradually heal and the scabs will come away, leaving a faint pink patch which will gradually fade.
This whole process, depending on how strong your immune system is at the time, will take anywhere from 5 - 21 days to completely heal. Hopefully here on this blog you will find a way to significantly cut down this time, or better still prevent the episode ever occurring.
