How long do sun blisters last on your lips, also is it possible that this is not caused by the herpes virus?

"Sun blisters"?: What do you mean by "sun blisters"? . Blistering could occur with sunburn. With heavy sweating, some people get miliaria (sweat blisters) when sweat builds up under blocked pores. And sun exposure can trigger oral herpes outbreaks. If you have a history of recurrent oral herpes and the current problem is similar, probably that's what it is. See a doctor if you remain uncertain or concerned.

I have white painful / tingling bumps on my lower lip one on the right and one of the left. Are they sun blisters?

Multiple causes: Many things can cause bumps on the skin and lip. It is easier to tell what it is by looking at it and knowing the characteristic. Stress and viruses can cause aphthous ulcers that are white and burn/tingle. Cold sores can burst and hurt/tingle and appear white at the bottom of the bottom/ulcer. Infection with pus can appear white and hurt as well. See a doctor.

I burned my lip (not by sunburn) and there's a blister. What can I do to treat this?

Be patient: Your body will heal - lips often remarkably quickly. No need to 'treat' -- but can do a few things to make it feel better while it heals. After the first few minutes -- many people like using cool or cold to relieve pain - popsickles or an ice cube in a wet washcloth can be soothing. Pain relievers can be used if really painful.

Have had painful sore on tip of tongue for 10 days, now feel tingling on upper lip. If this is hsv1 is it too late for Valtrex (valacyclovir) to prevent new blister?

Have had painful sore on tip of tongue for 10 days, now feel tingling on upper lip. If this is hsv1 is it too late for Valtrex (valacyclovir) to prevent new blister?

Yes: Unfortunately, Valtrex (valacyclovir) and other antiviral a are best used as early as possible during a herpetic outbreak. This time frame is usually considered to be within 48 hours of first symptoms. There is some consolation in knowing that this information will help you if another outbreak ever arises. If you are normally healthy and without any compromised immunity, you will recover without complication.

I am bald and I got really bad sunburn on my head 2 days ago. It is blistering everywhere. Should I go to the doctor or are there steps I can take?

Apply cool...: ...Washcloths often, and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation. And please learn the lesson mr. Sun is trying to teach you - enjoy his warmth and light, but respect his power. Invest in a good-quality hat or cap - the wider the brim the better - and apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion every time you go out in the sun.

What is commonly used to heal sun blisters?

What is commonly used to heal sun blisters?

Natural Process: With injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. Swelling occurs under the skin layers and causes them to bulge creating a protective fluid cushion called a blister. As the area heals, the fluid will be resorbed or when no longer needed, the blister opens and it drains. This should take about a week. Keep them covered and protected.
