What Causes Cold sores?

Cold sores are caused by certain strains of the herpes simplex virus (HSV). HSV-1 usually causes cold sores. HSV-2 is usually responsible for genital herpes. However, either type can cause sores in the facial area or on the genitals. Most people who are infected with the virus that causes cold sores never develop signs and symptoms.

Can it be treated?

Yes. We’ll give you accurate information, personalized treatment with scientifically-proven medication, and ongoing care to help you treat outbreaks.

Treatments for cold sores

In order to receive treatment for oral herpes (cold sores) through Mahimo, you need to have already received an in-person diagnosis from a doctor. If treatment is appropriate for you, we’ll ship your medication in discreet, unmarked packaging.

Valacyclovir (generic Valtrex)

Our physician in residence, one of the leading prescription medications used to treat oral herpes (cold sores).

Valacyclovir isn’t safe for some people and others may need a lower than normal dose to use valacyclovir safely. Tell your doctor if you have kidney disease or if your immune system isn’t normal because of bone marrow or kidney transplant or HIV. Common side effects of valacyclovir include headache, nausea, and abdominal pain. There is no cure for herpes, and even with treatment, it may be possible to spread herpes.

FAQs

How does genital herpes treatment with Mahimo work?

We use telemedicine technology and Canada licensed doctors to provide genital herpes treatments discreetly, conveniently, and inexpensively.
It starts with your online doctor visit. Your doctor needs to know about your health (e.g., your medications, lifestyle issues, prior surgeries) and how genital herpes affects you.

They also need personal ID so they know who they will be helping in the coming year. They review everything, determine if you’re a candidate for telemedicine, and, if so (most people are), they will craft a personalized treatment plan.
Their treatment plan will include a great deal of information about genital herpes. It is important you take the time to read it all. You will be better prepared to manage your condition as a partner—and not just a patient.

If you qualify, your doctor will provide a diagnosis and prescribe the right course of treatment to help you take control of herpes outbreaks.

Is genital herpes medication effective?

Genital herpes medication is available, and it works extremely well. But it requires you to dedicate the time to learn about your condition and work with your physician to craft the ideal, personalized treatment plan.

When you do, you’ll be able to identify the first indication of your specific symptoms (prodrome) and use your medication to shorten or stop the outbreak from occurring.

What are the side effects of genital herpes medication?

What follows is a partial summary and does not include every side effect possible.

Common side effects include headache, feeling sick, dizziness, vomiting, diarrhea, skin reaction after exposure to sunlight (photosensitivity), rash, or itching (pruritus).

Uncommon side effects include feeling confused, seeing or hearing things that aren’t there (hallucinations), feeling very drowsy, tremors, or feeling agitated, shortness of breath (dyspnea), stomach discomfort, rash, sometimes itchy, hive-like rash (urticaria), low back pain (kidney pain), blood in the urine (hematuria), reduction in the number of blood platelets which are cells that help the blood to clot (thrombocytopenia), reduction in the number of white blood cells (leucopenia), increase in substances produced by the liver

Rare side effects include unsteadiness when walking and lack of coordination (ataxia), slow, slurred speech (dysarthria), fits (convulsions), altered brain function (encephalopathy), unconsciousness (coma), confused or disturbed thoughts (delirium), kidney problems where you pass little or no urine. Lastly, watch out for a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). These are rare in people taking Valtrex.

If any of these occur, get emergency treatment immediately

Can a doctor treat genital herpes remotely?

Yes. If your genital herpes has been diagnosed by a physician, our doctors can prescribe medication and help you dial in the most effective treatment plan for your unique needs.

Physicians on the Mahimo platform use telemedicine technologies to treat you in the same way they treat patients in-person. Doctors ask you questions to evaluate your symptoms and make sure it’s safe and appropriate to prescribe medication. The physicians on the Mahimo platform use your answers to assess your condition and create a treatment plan. That’s why it’s vital you answer each question to the best of your knowledge and ensure that every communication with your physician is truthful, accurate, and thorough.

Why is the medication for oral and genital herpes the same?

Though they infect different parts of the body, cold sores (oral herpes) and genital herpes are caused by the same virus. There are two strains of the herpes virus—cold sores are more frequently caused by HSV-1, while genital herpes is more commonly associated with HSV-2. Both strains of the virus can be effectively treated using the same medication.
