Can one cold sore from Herpes Simplex I cause a low white blood cell count, low lymphocytes, neutrophils and eosinophils?


Answer by  ERstaff (9)

No, one small cold sore will not change your blood count. If anything white blood cell count would go up because your body is fighting the disease.

It's highly unlikely that you would have a drop in your white blood cells from one HS1 cold sore because these cells are needed to fight the infection.
