Cut on top lip with razor, fever blister formed, fluid filled bumps near it. Treatment options?

About a month ago I cut my top lip with a razor by accident and became a light scab, well now I have a huge fever blister in the same exact spot that came out yesterday, I woke up this morning with a few more bumps, (small & big) clear filled bumps on the same lip, just a little but away from the first one. Also have a large bump on the inside of my mouth, aligned with the first bump which is causing alot of selling and pain. I can barely drink from a can, or smile without looking like I have a disease What to do?

Hi.
Most probably,you night have acquired Herpes simplex type I infection(Herpes labialis),which occurs over the lips.
They occur most commonly due to fever or any other disease which lowers the immunity.
There is no method to eradicate herpes virus from the body, but antiviral medications can reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of outbreaks. Analgesics can reduce pain and fever. Topical anesthetic treatments can also relieve itching and pain.
There are several antivirals that are effective for treating herpes.
Please consult your doctor and get it diagnosed and treated.
It is a self limiting disease,so don't worry.
Wish you good health
