What are Cold Sores?

Cold sores are small, fluid-filled lesions that form around the mouth or on the lips. The medical name for oral cold sores is ‘herpes labialis’. Cold sores can affect both men and women of any age, but the initial presentation typically occurs during childhood.

What you should know

Our platform guides pharmacists to look at the answers you provide to our self-assessment questions to decide if you have cold sores that they can treat appropriately.


We use evidence based guidelines and protocols to ask you the right questions that will assess whether it’s safe for your pharmacist to prescribe or if you should be referred to a doctor, nurse, or specialist.
