What are the symptoms of a cold sore?

There are usually several stages to a cold sore. Firstly, tingling and itching around the lips for a day or so before a small hard spot appears and blisters erupt. The second stage is small-fluid filled blisters which typically erupt along the border of your lips. Finally these small blisters may merge and then burst, leaving shallow open sores that ooze and crust over.
