What is the fastest/best way to get rid of cold sores/ fever blister?

Some options

Cold_sore
Melissa Officinalis or lemon balm (cream) expedites healing of cold sores. It can reduce healing time by half. Studies also show that regular use can help v recurrences. Brief supplementation with lysine 1,000mg orally three times a day at the onset, can also hasten healing. Your physician can prescribe oral valtrex.

If a fever helps prevent the proliferation of pathogens, isn't it better to not try to get rid of the fever?

Fever

Fever
Fever is one of the body's responses to infection; so some fever is beneficial (below 102º F). Higher fevers, however, can be detrimental: seizures, brain damage, etc. Children tolerate higher fevers (temporarily) better than adults. If fever goes over 102ºF, treat it (Remember, NO aspirin in fevers in children! Use Tylenol or Children's Advil). If no response after couple hours, see doc.

To prevent cold sores from occurring wash hands often. Maintain a healthful lifestyle (regular exercise, nutritious diet, adequate sleep, keeping stress at bay). Keep lips well moisturized & apply sun screen to the areas that your cold sores normally pop up. Talk with your physician about supplementing with Lysine. Melissa Officinalis or lemon balm can help heal fever blisters.

My friend gets headaches frequently. what can prevent them/ how do you get ride of a fever?

Evaluation first

Fever
Everything starts with a good evaluation. Trying to isolate the potential causes of the symptoms[what people complain about ] and signs,what can be measured [like fever]. If medical causes are ruled out then the psychological can be looked at. If a fever is present it sounds more medical. It could be viral i.e. infection or inflammation which is non-viral e.g. allergies.Is their a rash? Tic bite?

Can slapping a 6 month old hard on his back 5-6 times get him fever??? What is the treatment to make the baby recover???

Why slap baby?

Fever-adult
Why would you want to slap a baby hard on the back? And slapping him wont cause fever. If he has a fever use Tylenol or ibuprofen

with a body temp from 96.8 to 97.1 all night is it concern for heat therapy treatment so I can get a fever? none in 20 years

Hypothyroid

Fever-adult
You may be hypothyroid. Check free T3 and reverse T3. FT3 should be in upper range and RT3 in lower range. If your ratio is off, you may need Armour Thyroid or T3, and synthroid would be the wrong med for you.

Can still have flu

Influenza
Tamiflu decreases the possibility of infection but you could have been infected with the flu before even starting the medicine, but just had not started showing symptoms yet.

Tb 10+ yrs ago in jail I failed a tb test, 02 yrs ago I did the 09 month treatment, last 30 days I'm running fever, can't get enough air, coughing up yellowish stuff , bad night sweets, vision messing with me, bottom of my rib cage is extremely sore from

You

You need to present to an urgent care or emergency room. The fact that you "can't get enough air" is worrisome. You may be dealing with pneumonia or bronchitis. Tuberculosis is unlikely since you underwent 9 months of treatment. However, you need to see a doctor to get a diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Good luck.

Is there a cure/treatment for fever of unknown origin?

Need dx

Fever
A fever of unknown origin (FUO) is just that, unknown, and any treatment before an official diagnosis would be empirical (based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory,logic or a definitive diagnosis).
