hello, As per ur description it seems u r having draining abscess/sinus.. the blister is opening of infection from either soft tissues (gingiva, periodontal ligament) or from hard tissues ( bone,tooth)
It has to be assesed clinically and radiographically about the origin of abscess..
most commonly it is from carious or traumatised tooth.. and to treat it permanently RCT of involved tooth is done.and blister resolves forever..
if its from gums only..then gums /periodontal surgery is treat it..
meanwhile u can use chlorhexidine mouthwash/ gels on ur gums temporarily..
