Should i go to the doctor for my jaw or will it be fine if i just treat at home? I recently got hit in the jaw twice while playing soccer. Once with a ball there days ago and again with someone's shoulder yesterday. Now it is really sore whenever i open

True cold sores are caused by the herpes virus and steroids actually spread the virus. One also has to be careful what one uses on 3 year olds regarding topical medications.
