Q: What is the best thing to use OTC for blister on lip

Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.

Blisters on lip are most likely due to viral infection known as Herpes labialis.
It is caused by Human herpesvirus 1 most of the times.
For this, I prefer to advise oral antivirals like Acyclovir / Valacyclovir.
Also topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area is advised.
I would like to advise you to visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthyr
