GINGIVAL DISEASES OF VIRAL ORIGIN: RECURRENT ORAL HERPES

  1. 1. By: Calibo, Jansen S. DMD-3AA GINGIVAL DISEASES OF VIRAL ORIGIN: RECURRENT ORAL HERPES
  2. 2. Recurrent Oral Herpes  Most patients have only a couple of outbreaks a year, although a small percentage of patients experience more frequent recurrences.  HSV-2 oral infections tend to recur less frequently than HSV-1.  Recurrences are usually much milder than primary infections and are known commonly as cold sores or fever blisters (because they may arise during a bout of cold or flu).  They usually show up on the outer edge of the lips and rarely affect the gums or throat.  In most cases there are local, highly contagious vesicles on the lip or at the gingiva.
  3. 3. Etiology:  Factors which triggers the reactivation of the virus: 1. Fever 2. Cold 3. upper respiratory infection 4. exposure to the sun or cold air 5. Fatigue 6. Menstruation 7. UV light exposure 8. psychic stress
  4. 4.  Diminished host resistance is the common precipitating factor for the reactivation of Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV).
  5. 5. Clinically..  Some patients get an “Aura” sensation (they are able to sense that a lesion will soon develop.  Lesions starts out as vesicles and maybe fleeting vesicles.  Occurs particularly on the bound down mucosa which is attached to the periosteum.
  6. 6. Treatment/Prognosis:  Topical Acyclovir can be prescribed. Acyclovir serves to shorten the duration of the disease by one to two days.  Instruct patient for proper nutrition, oral care, appropriate fluid intake.  Prognosis is self-limiting.
