Stomatitis: Have you checked for similar lesions inside the mouth? If so, she could be suffering from primary herpetic stomatitis, a herpetic viral infection. Be careful to not allow dehydration. As my colleague pointed out, it could be hand/foot/mouth disease, also viral and needs care in the same fashion. Self limiting. Good luck!

Fever blister in between my lip and nose. On the skin. Just appeared.?

Fever blister in between my lip and nose. On the skin. Just appeared.?

Confirm Dx, get Rx: Are you sure it's a fever blister (oral herpes)? Had it previously with the same symptoms? If so, then pretty sure you have it again. If new, see a doctor ASAP to confirm the diagnosis. Effective treatment can speed healing of recurrent oral herpes, and it only requres a single dose of drug (valacyclovir), but must be taken within 1-2 days of onset. Either way, call or see doctor immediately.

If I have a fever blister on lip can it go to my eyes?

Possibly: If, by a "fever blister" you mean a "cold sore" caused by HSV (Herpes Simplex Virus), then yes, this indicates that HSV is latent in the system and could potentially reactivate at times of stress or low immunity to cause a cold sore on the lip or mouth, or to cause Herpetic Eye Disease, which commonly manifests on the surface of the eye but could affect the inside of the eye.
