In brief: Some like ice
Chilling down the blisters with ice chips or popsicles slows the pain messages the nerves send up to her brain.
It may last long enough to help her eat a bit. It also helps the problem without any aftertaste or side effects. Avoiding acidic fruit drinks(orange, tomatoe, grapefruit)helps while neutral drinks like fruit necters, grape juice & milk are better tolerated.

In brief: Motrin and chlorasep
Motrin for pain plus chloraseptic.
You don't have to spray it, you can open it and gargle/swish and spit it. Popsicles may help as well...
