● If you get cold sores, you will definitely need an antiviral treatment (ex: valtrex or at least l-lysine). Physicians usually instruct to begin taking it 3 days before procedure, for a 7-10 day course. Cold sore blisters can occur on many different parts of the body but are most common on or around the lips, cheeks, or nose and also (on rare occasions) in the eye and eyebrows. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) typically causes cold sores. But even if you have never had a cold sore, 90% of the population have the virus that they are not aware of. It has been estimated that nearly 50% of children entering kindergarten and 90% of adults have been infected with HSV, although a much smaller percentage has experienced any symptoms. A number of factors can TRIGGER the virus, including sunlight, sunburn, stress, fatigue, fever, menstruation and intestinal upset. Cosmetic tattooing is one of the well known triggers. In many cases, the precipitating factors remain unknown
