Heals on it's own: A fever blister is a virus (herpes simplex) nystatin is for fungus. Ice applied to the area will help with the pain, as will something like benzyl alcohol. If you get many of them or frequent outbreaks a doctor can prescribe an antiviral. This may also reduce the time you have it by a day or so. ...Read more

In general, the pills work better than the creams. ...Read more

Best RX is TIME: The lesion undergoes a series of changes and heals over 14-21 days--after which the virus goes dormant. Anti-viral drugs based on Acyclovir are available by prescription and can be taken as a preventive med. Otc meds, like abreva, have variable success rates. If they occur frequently, you can take valtrex daily as a preventive measure, but will need a prescription. There is no 'fast' way. ...Read more

Time: Unfortunately these will have to heal on their own. Keep him on a "bland" diet with no spices and no carbonated beverages so that they do not become more irritated. Your dentist or physician can often prescribe a soothing oral rinse to help reduce the discomfort and enable him to eat more easily. Nutrition is very important at this time. Please see your dentist or physician to help your son. ...Read more
