Fever Blister On Lip

Written By: ibzzA1 - May• 01•12

Getting a fever blister on your lip can be a painful experience. Lip fever blisters can make it difficult to eat, smile and even talk. Understanding what causes fever blisters and how to treat them to relieve the pain and swelling and shorten the duration of the blister will help you heal faster and get you smiling once more.

What Causes a Fever Blister?

A fever blister is caused by the herpes simplex virus. It is an extremely contagious disease. Anyone can pick it up by coming in contact with someone who is having an active outbreak. Kissing a person with an oozing cold sore is one way to catch the virus, you can also catch it by using the same eating utensils or drinking out of the same glass. Touching their sore and then not washing your hands before touching your own face or mouth is another way to catch it.

Once you contact the herpes simplex virus you have it for life. The virus lies dormant in your body and becomes active when your immunity system is lowered by catching a cold or other illness or by mental or physical stress. When this virus becomes active it appears as an outbreak around your mouth or on your lips.

Treatment For Fever Blisters

The very best treatment for fever blisters is maintaining your immune system. When your immune system is functioning at it's best it helps to keeps the herpes simplex virus dormant. A dormant virus will not cause fever blisters. Eating a balanced and healthy diet that strengthens and keeps your immune system strong is an important defense against not only fever blisters but other illnesses as well. Diets high in Vitamin A,C, and E and well as minerals such as Zinc and Iron will strengthen your immune system. Eating plenty of fresh fruits, orange, red and green leafy vegetables will help as well. Getting plenty of exercise and adequate rest also will help strengthen your immune system.

If a fever blister does develop then treating the swelling and pain will help ease the discomfort caused by the blisters. Ice can relieve some of the swelling as well as help prevent the blister from spreading. Taking an over the counter anti-viral medication can help as well.

Many times fever blisters are accompanied by fevers. If you are having a fever taking aspirin or buffered aspirin can help reduce your fever. Drinking plenty of fluids while the fever is present will also keep you hydrated.

Witch hazel can relieve some of the burning and aloe gel will also help relieve burning and stinging and help the blisters to heal faster.

Once the blisters have broken and a crust begins to form it is important to keep the scab from cracking. Vaseline will lubricate the scab and help prevent cracking. Using oils such oregano oil will also keep the scab from cracking but has the added benefit of soaking through the scab to the actual sore below and helping it heal.

While there is no cure for fever blisters there are things you can do to reduce the symptoms and help yourself to heal faster.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Why and how does a fever blister (on lip) occur?
    I had a fever for several days, and eventually developed the classic fever blister on my lower lip. It's healing now, thankfully.

    How and why does a fever blister occur? Is it really caused by the fever? Is it part of the healing process? Is there a way to be rid of them faster? Thank you. David

    • ANSWER:
      It's actually a herpes virus, called herpes simplex 1, (not the genital herpes, herpex simplex 2) and the fever blister/sore shows up when your immune system is under attack and fighting back against something else (fever, cold, etc.)

      A person can get the cold sores of HSV1 by kissing, touching your lips to a water fountain where someone carrying it has used the fountain, sharing eating utensils with an infected person, etc. They do show up sometimes when you get too much sun.

      They are harmless. Treat with an warm cloth or ice pack , whichever makes you feel better, and use blistex or carmex. Don't "pop" the blisters, they get better on their own !

      To prevent in the future, drink plenty of liquids and use Vitamin C at the first sign of a cold. Use a lip moisturizer like chap stick, all the time, especially in winter. Use a sunscreen moisturizer in the summer. In a pinch, where I have forgotten moisturizer at the beach, I apply tanning lotion, then put my lips to my arm and work in the lotion or oil with my lips. Works like a charm.

      PS. If you like my answer, could you please rate it. I am at 232 and need 18 points to get to level 2. Thanks !

  2. QUESTION:
    what is the quickest home remedy that will get rid of a fever blister on lip(thats bubbled up?
    my daughter is 12 and has fever blisters bad any advice or tips is appreciated

    • ANSWER:
      Er, there's that really expensive cream that comes in an itty-bitty tube..I can't recall the name, but it's blue, and I'm almost sure it starts with an A. I've heard that yogurt helps, and I'm fond of that Burt's Bee lip balm for that because it's cooling.

  3. QUESTION:
    Whats the difference between a sun blister on your lip and a fever blister?
    I have a swollen bump on my bottom lip, its not red or crusted or anything, and I was exposed to the sun alot lately. Is it a sun or fever blister? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Sun blister probably, considering you were in the sun. Buy a chap stick with an SPF in it and wear it from now on. It will probably peel if it's sun.
      Fever blisters are often just an auto-immune response to viruses in some people and tend to form just at the outer edge of the lips just at the line between lip and skin. My husband gets them instead of a cold. And certain acidity foods sometimes trigger them, as I had a friend who'd get them from drinking orange juice.

  4. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for a fever blister on your lip to heal & what's the best medication to use?
    I accidentally used a friend's carmex lip balm and 2 days later a fever blister appeared on my lip. What is the duration time for a fever blister & what is the best medication to take? :-(

    • ANSWER:
      From beginning to fully gone, it can be up to 2 weeks.

      For over the counter try Abreva and keep it moisturized so it doesn't crack.

      Then to be prepared for next time, ask your doctor for a prescription of Valtrex. Its the same stuff they use for genital herpes, but it works excellent for lip sores. But you have to use it right away when you start to feel the tingle. That's why you need to have it on hand. With Valtrex, the sore probably won't even show up at all when used promptly.

      Then don't share Carmex anymore ;-)

  5. QUESTION:
    i have a fever blister on my lip?
    I have a fever blister on my lip I've never had one til today and I start my first day of work today. Is there any way to dry it up quick?

    • ANSWER:
      fever blister, cold sore, they all amount to the same thing, oral herpes.
      It can lay dormant in your nervous system for years after you've been infected and you never know when one will spring up. To prevent spread to your genitals always wash your hands before going to the bathroom. Abreva is an over the counter product that seems to speed healing and keeps the sore from cracking and bleeding. To clear it up faster, you would need to see your doctor for a prescription of Valtrex.

  6. QUESTION:
    does Anbesol help get rid of a fever blister on your lip?
    i've been searching around& all people been talking about is that it helps get rid of a fever blister inside your mouth.
    i got a fever blister 2 days ago and i want it to go away by tomorrow. give me advice, solutions, remedies, and tell me how it worked on you(:

    • ANSWER:
      For pain relief, try products that contain local anesthetics. Anbesol cold sore ointment contains benzocaine, and Zilactin ointment contains benzyl alcohol to relieve pain. You also can use pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. If a cold sore becomes infected, apply an antibiotic ointment, such as Polysporin, three to four times a day. If sun exposure tends to reactivate your cold sores, use a lip sunscreen.

      Without treatment, cold sores usually heal within 1 to 2 weeks. Some OTC medications can reduce that by one to two days.

  7. QUESTION:
    Do lip fever blisters need moisturized or dried out?
    I got a crack in the corner of my mouth about 4 days ago and put some neosporin on it. It healed up, but then today I found that the sides of my lips and the rest of my lips have little fever blisters on them. Idk what to do and I do NOT want to go to school tomorrow w/ swollen lips. :(

    What can I do to help get rid of this?

    • ANSWER:
      Fever blisters do need moisturizing, which makes the process much more physically comfortable. I'd recommend Abreva. It cuts the recovery time considerably!

      See your doctor for diagnosis. There are many possible causes, which need to be considered (in hopes to avoid future blisters) and treated properly.

  8. QUESTION:
    I gave oral sex to my man with a fever blister on my lip, can he catch this on his manhood?
    I know it is also referred to as a cold sore or some sort of herpes. Can a man catch this this on his penis from a lip? IF SO......... would that be considered herpes or a genital fever blister? Or is this not possible?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you can give him a blister on his member, but the sore on your lip is type 1 herpes, which causes cold sores, and 90% of us carry it. It is best if you have a sore on your lip not to kiss him or perform oral sex until it is gone.

      It is NOT Herpes type 2, which is the sexually transmitted variety that causes intermittent outbreaks in the genital area.

    • ANSWER:
      Does your friend have herpes? You could have gotten a cold sore (a common type of herpes - not the sexual kind). Check with a doctor if it's serious, or a pharmacist for some decent over the counter meds to take care of it.

  11. QUESTION:
    Nasty fever blister and lip swelling?
    I was over-exposed to sunlight this past weekend and my face got extremely burnt. I have also been battling a head cold as well. Yesterday, approx 3 days after the sun exposure, my bottom lip began tingling. Within 24 hours, I now have a massive fever blister on my bottom lip which is a bit painful and has caused considerable swelling in half of my bottom lip. I went to a CVS Minute Clinic today and the doctor said it was a fever blister, but too far along to be treated with a prescription. She recommended Abreva.

    This thing seems to be blistering up pretty good, still painful and swollen. Will the Abreva actually have any impact or how long before I notice a difference? It seems like a part of it is pussing already. When I use the Abreva, it still feels like its tingling, does this mean its working? Is there anything else I can try to help with the swelling, or should I seek further advice from a doctor?

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Herpicin, Abreva, etc will work. I get them when I go into the sun also. Blisters are in the herpes family and are a virus.
      Keep putting the medication on your lip...it will take a long time to get rid of it.

    Question for those who have had oral herpes/fever blister on lip?
    I am a very paranoid person and have never hd a fever blister/oral herpes on my lip before. Well 2 days ago I got a small what looked like pimple but did not have a whitehead right at the top of my lip. I decided to squeeze it but seemed to make it more inflamed. It is very small hardly noticeable at all and not noticeable with makeup. Does this sound like oral herpes or just a pimple??

      Abreva for over the counter. Valtrex for behind.. The first few days are important, ice helps too. Try to avoid licking your lips. I have got these since I was a kid, so I went to the doctor and got Valrex, they go away in like 3 days.

  19. QUESTION:
    Fever Blister on Lip!?
    Any homemade remedies to alleviate this condition?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Chockie!! I felt a bump on my lip 36 hours ago. I went to my vehicle and looked for a medicated chapstick that I use from time to time that retards the growth of these blisters. It was not to be found. I dabbed some pure white vinegar on the lip..not drenching. This was applied frequently. Later I applied a local waxy salve. I found my neosporin the next day and began applying this in conjuction with the vinegar. 24 hours later the bump was invisible. It may not be a cure, but it sure helped. Kudo's to all the people that lended you their thoughts and assistance.

  20. QUESTION:
    Is fever blister on the lip common during pregnancy?

    • ANSWER:
      Cold sores are common, especially if you are prone to them already. Your body is a little more vulnerable to infection, and your just a little bit more under stress. The week I found out I was pregnant I got 2 cold sores! Usually I only get one a year around November. My dentist told me this was common for pregnant women.

  21. QUESTION:
    Fever Blister?
    I have a fever blister on my lip. It just appeared last night, I don't know where it came from, I haven't been kissing anyone, and I haven't had a cold recently. I need this to go away quick, what can I put on it?

    • ANSWER:
      Start by icing it for about 1 hour. Use an ice cube in a clean washcloth replacing the ice cube about 4-5 times. During the day use Campho Phenique often,and at night put toothpaste on it. I know it sounds wierd but after experimenting with several products this is what worked best for me. I have been getting them since I was a sophmore in high school- they are triggered by stress after you have been exposed. I have tried Abreva, prescriptions, Lysine, this works best for me. Good Luck

  22. QUESTION:
    Can you get a fever blister from getting bit on the lip?
    OK so about four days ago I was making out with my guy and he kept biting my lip. So much that the side he was biting was extremely swollen. After about two days and the swelling went down my lip was bruised and seemed to have a cut on it. Now there is a fever blister forming on my lip. Is this normal? Should I be scared? Help plz thanks..

    • ANSWER:
      A fever blister is caused by the herpes simplex virus. It is likely that you have been exposed to the virus in infancy, most of us have. The virus will reactivate when there is some stress like illness, trauma (like the lip biting) and sun exposure. So the lip biting may have reactivated the virus, but you probably already had it. You should not be scared, but avoid more kissing while the blilster is active.

I have a Drs App today,I'm scared it's to late for anythinq from the Doctor. What should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      You should go see the Doctor. From what you describe, I don't think you have a Fever Blister. Fever Blisters are caused by the Herpes Virus. The time it takes to heal is much longer (two weeks) than the three days you have had the swollen lip and sore. You probably have a spider bite or some other minor problem that will pass. But you have to confirm that with your Doctor. If it is a real Fever Blister, caused by the Herpes Virus, it must be your first outbreak, which are usually more severe. Don't be worried about it. Talk it over with the Doctor and he can put your mind at ease. Not that I condone telling fibs, but if you have to show up at your crushes house on Sunday, just tell him you accidentally bit your lip somehow:)

      Good Luck !

  32. QUESTION:
    I have a fever blister on my lip! WERE IT COME FROM?
    I'm 25 years old never had a blister on my lip NEVER until now! Iz not on my vagina thank god! What do u think it is

    • ANSWER:
      You have a cold sore/fever blister. Don't worry as much about how you got it. You have to take care of it. They can get really large and be painful. The best thing I have found is Abreva- you can buy it any pharmacy or at Walmart. Campho Phen. also makes a cold sore treatment that helps to dry it out. Not to scare you, but cold sores/fever blisters are viral so once you get one, you'll always be susceptible. You're more likely to get another one when you're sick (because your immune system is compromised) or under stress, or in a very hot or very cold climate. If you get them frequently, your dr can prescribe Valtrex which if you take it as soon as you experience symptoms...may stop it in its tracks. Good luck!

  33. QUESTION:
    Is it okay to put alcohol on a fever blister in order to help dry it up?
    I have a fever blister on my lip and I was wondering if putting alcohol on it would help dry it out and help speed up the process? Is this good or bad?

    • ANSWER:
      BAD!
      Fever blisters are a strain of the herpes virus (no, not the scary gential one!) I get fever blisters twice a year and they hurt so bad.
      That being said, alcohol will make it worse and make it hurt worse. It may even spread the virus across your face.
      I use abreva and Herpecin L. Herpecin L is a fraction of the cost of abreva, and it hurts initially when you apply it, but it goes away and it reduces healing time (for me) by about two weeks!
      It's about at Wal mart and totally worth it.
      But don't put alcohol on it!!!

      It's very hard. Generally the two different strains of herpes affect the two different regions although there is like, 3% of cases where simplex 1 will be the cause of genital herpes and visa verse.

      You probably have an ingrown hair.

      It'd be really hard to get it from yourself. It'd be more likely that someone who went down on you or someone you had sex with would give it to you.

  45. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of a fever blister on my lip?
    I'm allergic to lip cosmetics and facial washes. They cause awful fever blisters on my lips. Well long story short I bought some Mary Kay face wash and approx. 2 days later (today) I have developed a fever blister...The past two years I've been careful. No chapstick, lipgloss/stick, no blistex, abreva...NOTHING (yes I'm allergic to all of those and break out.) The ONLY thing I can use is Vaseline.

    After not having a fever blister for 2 years and then suddenly getting one after using new face wash I'm convinced that is the problem. How do I make it go away?

    • ANSWER:
      i have the same name and the same problem lmao. i always forget the fact that i can't do any of that and accidently put on chapstick(etc) there is really nothing you can do unfortunetly..at least i haven't found a solution.

  47. QUESTION:
    Does a fever blister mean I have herpes?
    I am 15 and I've had this fever blister on my lip for about 2 or 3 days now, and I'm becoming paranoid that it is oral herpes. This is the first time I've had a fever blister, however I've had cold sores before in my mouth but its been at least a year or two since i've had one. So is this herpes or not? and when can i resume kissing others?

    • ANSWER:
      it is herpes simplex 1 many many people have it, the best thing to do is wait until outbreaks end to kiss others, this will drastically reduce the risk of your partner catching herpes.

  48. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of fever blisters on your lip?
    I was fine then noticed that the very next day after the Homecoming dance I had literally a clump of fever blisters on my lip. It looks disgusting and hurts so bad. I have missed 2 days of school because of it and just feel like crap. How can I get rid of them?

    Also, I don't have a fever so I am not sure as to why I have this dumb thing.

    • ANSWER:
      You CAN'T get rid of them. It lies dormant on the nerve in your lip and it has flare ups. The one thing that I LOOOOOVE to use and it works SO WELL is Abreva. It's expensive, but its FDA approved and it works wonders! Just make sure you apply it when you first feel that you're getting a cold sore.

  49. QUESTION:
    I have a "fever blister" and my lip swelled up!? :( Is this normal?
    Okay, so yesterday I was out shopping and my lip was feeling weird. Idk what was going on, so I went about it as if it were nothing. Well at church last night my lip started getting a blister on it. It was bigger than a normal blister! I woke up this morning and its huge now! My lip is reallyyyy swollen, and it it hard with puss. What can I do?? I hate this :(

    • ANSWER:
      If there actually is pus present, you need to see your doctor and get an antibiotic. The swelling could be from fluid in the tissues related to the cold sore. In that case, you need to start applying a drying cream to the blister to help it heal. There are over the counter creams for cold sores - Abreva, Herpicin, etc. or hydrocortisone cream will do the same. Cold sores take about 2 weeks to heal up.

    i had a fever blister on my lip i scratched it and my lips stay scaped and its been 4 weeks now it just wont?

    • ANSWER:
      go see a doctor. they have this stuff that i had to get and the fever blister went away in like 2 days! i think it's called zovarax. it's about for a small tube but it takes like 2 applications and it's gone. plus you can save the rest and use it if you get another.
