Had impetigo and used mupirocin2% three weeks ago. Left with redness and lower lip is itchy but no signs of blisters. Is it back?

Maybe not: If the redness is a little less (improving) each day, it may be "post-inflammatory" redness that gradually goes away after the impetigo heals. If crusting or oozing returns, then the doctor can look to see if the infection has returned. Many people get blisters on a lip that are cold sores, instead of impetigo. Cold sores are caused by viruses (mupirocin doesn't work on those viruses). ...Read more

Had bronchoscopy with washing. Woke up from sedation, with left, side of lower lip swollen blister type thing. Is this normal? Should I pop it?

Don't pop it: This probably means that something was resting on your lip during the procedure and you were unaware because you were asleep. Most likely it was a mouth guard that is typically used - to make sure you don't bite down on the scope. If you can avoid it, I wouldn't pop it. This may open it up and risk infection. ...Read more

I have 2 awful fever blisters on my lower lip, they take forever to go away. Is there any way I can make them heal faster?

Yes: 1) See your doctor and get an anti-viral medication.
You can shed virus even after the sores dry. Or...
2) There is an OTC creme called Abreva. In my experience Abreva works on some patients and not on others.
These sores are caused by Herpes Type I virus. This is not genital herpes. No kissing, wash hands frequently and keep fingers away from eyes. Do not transfer virus to eyes or other people ...Read more
