Hi ,

Firstly good to know that you know about the name of the papilla.
You have not provided any pain/itching history in relation to the blister & duration of the blister being there.
If it is painful then give fresh fruits & juices so as to give vitamins & minerals as no treatment is needed.
If it is painful, then please consult some nearby dentist.

Also, the pimple you mentioned is just enlargement/hypertrophy of the papilla,no need to worry.
Just take good care of her.

With Regards,

Dr. Himanshu Govil
