Hi!vijaya,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
It is not very clear as to what your mother had.But there are only two possibilities .One that she had Herpes labialis infection and other that she had a Boil near the lips.Both the conditions are painful and can cause fever.I would go with HERPES INFECTION.
Herpes infection can lead to pigmented spots after healing and usually there are multiple such spots.
One needs a proper anti viral treatment here for 7 days,along with medicines for fever .As far as spots are concerned she should not worry too much ,as they might get resolved after few months.
And in case its a boil then she needs a course of anti biotic for 7 days.A macrolide would be a good alternative.
Kindly avoid self medications and consult a dermatologist for proper medications.

regards,
Dr.chawda

A 27 year old healthy male started experiencing high fever and cold chills after receiving very stressful news. It has now been 14 hours and he is still exhibiting these symptoms. He has indicated that he can feel his brain boiling hot . He is not as stressed at this moment as he was at the onset of the news, but is still having the same level of symptoms. What could possibly be the diagnosis? A viral infection? Low blood pressure?

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?
