Blister on corner of mouth, turning whitish, not water filled. Is it healing right?

Hi, I got a blister in the corner of my mouth yesterday. And I put on Compeed s Total Care Invisible right away. I ve never had a blister on my lip before and my mom says it could be herpes/ cold sore . It hasn t burst yet (and I heard that s good), but I m just wondering if its healing alright. It s turning white-ish and doesn t look like its filled with water anymore. Anyway, do you know if its healing alright and how long it will take for it to heal?

Your condition appears to be herpes only. The only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications. As it healing so nothing else is required. At the maximum you can apply any antibiotic cream.
