    blisters on lips
    preciouschamelion posted:
    I was in the sun twice this week, used 60SPF protection which i reapplied throughout sun exposure but now have blisters and swelling on lips! What can I do for this? I do not believe that they are cold sores because i have not kissed, drank or eat after someone else. What can i do to make the swelling go down and pain to go away? I am taking tylenol, and benedryl. Also have used peroxide, neosporin, carmex, chapstick and aloe plant. None seem to make it any better. Please help....

    Hi Preciouschamelion,

    Welcome to the Oral Health community. Sorry to hear about the blisters on your lip!

    Have you ever had cold sores before? Too much sunlight can cause cold sores to flare .

    This article has some good tips on cold sore treatments . My daughter takes L-lysine supplements, which really seems to help when she has a flare.

    I'm sure our community will be chiming in soon with their suggestions, as well. Let us know how you're doing.
