If there is herpes on the lips, in most cases it is caused by herpes simplex virus infection. This virus is only present in the blisters, saliva and feces of infected people, recovering people or asymptomatic virus carriers.Usually appears after 1 week of contact with the virus, manifested as cluster blisters on the surface of the skin and mucous membranes；
Some people will have a tingling or burning sensation 1-2 days before the blisters appear.In most cases, herpes will heal within about 2 weeks and will not leave scars.
But this virus is easy to relapse, because after infection, the virus will permanently lurk in the human body.Most of the time it is very quiet and will not attack, but if there are factors that trigger its attack, it will cause people to have the above course again.
