Should i give my 3 year old ibuprofen for a fat lip upper lip swollen due to trip and fall, inside is bruised like blood blister

Drain it: If you have no medical conditions like diabetes, etc, it is generally safe to drain a blister after 2-3 days to allow the skin underneath to develop. Use a clean needle soaked for 15 minutes in isopropyl alcohol. Drain, then cover with a sterile gauze pad and some antibiotic ointment. If discomfort doesn't resolve in a few days, if it becomes red or starts draining pus, see a podiatrist promptly. ...Read more
