Why?: Why treat a low grade fever? It may be helpful, it should not affect you adversely other than being aware of it, and simply recording the levels of fever and the times it occurs may help your doctor if it persists and you need a diagnosis. If you are really bothered by it you can take Aspirin or tylenol (acetaminophen) every 4-6 hours to suppress it. Less than a minute ago.See 1 more doctor answer
Weight based meds: Both tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetomenophen) and advil (ibuprofen) have age and weight based dosing for children with fever. Luke warm bath splashing can also help--do not use ice water or alcohol baths! Of course, finding the reason for the fever is most important, so if the child is ill, they should be evaluated by the doctor.
Take tylenol (acetaminophen): Unless you have a specific infection than tylenol (acetaminophen) plus a cool bath should lower your fever fast. If that does not work than you need to see your primary dr. To do blood work. We need to find out if your fever is caused by an allergic reaction or an infection so that it can be treated properly. It may be a serious infection. Don't ever ignore signs of infection because it rarely resolves on its own.
See below: Take tylenol, (acetaminophen) get rest, lost of fluids in and out if possible, avoid too much activity. Sometimes cold wet cloths on your head can help to break it, but know that you can only treat the symptoms not really the fever. The fever is created by your body to try to kill a invading pathogen.
Earlier I sent a question how to get a fever fast when I meant to say how to get rid of a fever fast. Sorry!?
Intra-oral or lip?: My patients often use "fever blister" for all ulcers or erosions that occur in the mouth or on the lips. They are different. On the lips are typically herpes simplex virus type 1, treated with oral acyclovir. In the mouth, the ulcer is called aphthous ulcer, which we treat with a topical steroid. Please see your doctor for an evaluation.
Fever in Children: Please learn the following by heart. A fever in a child is nothing to just tolerate. It is imperative to find the reason for the fever; it is imperative to treat the cause of the fever; it is imperative to keep the child hydrated and to keep the fever down with children's Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen). But finding the reason for the fever is paramount.
See below: Fever blisters are caused by reactivation of a chronic herpes simplex infection usually type i. It will resolve spontaneously without treatment. Severe cases or frequent recurrences can be treated with prescription oral acyclovir, Famvir (famciclovir) or valacyclovir (valtrex).See 1 more doctor answer
Get rid of the infec: See u physician for evaluation and work up, take u medication, try to rest and take enough fluid.
Abreva: Abreva is a safe over the counter topical treatment for cold sores. I find it works as well as most prescription products. Many large supermarkets with a drug counter or drug stores will carry this item.
Cold sores: Melissa officinalis or lemon balm (cream) has been shown in european studies to help expedite healing of cold sores. It can reduce healing time by half. Studies also show that regular use can help v recurrences.
See below: Tincture of "time". Wait it out, healing simply takes time. But pain meds and oral gels for the pain can help. Also, if this is chronic, talk to you doc about a trial of antivirals and whether your particular case warrants this.
