hello,

had a few questions for anyone.
1) when the cold sore is weeping and starts to heal, does it always have a yellow or a color crust or can it be just a white flaky skin color?
2) does tingling around the mouth a sure sign that it is cold sores or can it be something else?
3) i read somewhere that if you puncture your sore (building stage), that it does not bleed and white puss does not come out. is that true?
thanks in advance.

so do you know you have cold sores or are you wondering if something going on around your mouth area is a cold sore?

best thing to do is to go and be seen though if this is this healed, not much they can do other than a visual.

cold sores typically crust over. in the beginning if you pop them it's clear stuff comes out of them, wait a few days and it gets more white/yellowish.
