Cold sore vs heat: Keep moist with lip balm. It should resolve in a few days. If it blisters or continue to grow and hurt, make sure it is not herpesvirus which requires medication- Zovirax (acyclovir)

No: Gently cooling the skin is the treatment for heat bumps. Rubbing alcohol may actually irritate the skin and make the problem worse.
