How Do You Know If You Have a Recurring Fever Blister?
Fever blister is a term used to describe the red, tender, fluid-filled blister that forms on the skin when an individual has a fever. It is caused by the body’s immune system responding to infection.
The following are some of the symptoms that indicate you may have a fever blister:

– A fluid filled blister with clear edges
– A “tender” feeling or pain when touched in that area
– An unpleasant odor
How Is the Head Blister Treated?
Head blisters are painful skin lesions that occur when a person rubs the skin on their head too vigorously. They usually appear on the scalp or forehead and can be caused by an allergic reaction, bacterial infection, or an insect bite.
There are many different treatments for head blisters. The most common treatment is to cover the blister with a bandage that protects it from further irritation and allows it to heal without any further complications.
Head blisters typically resolve within 2-3 days, but in some cases may take up to 6 weeks for healing.
What Treatment Options are Available for Shingles?
Shingles is an acute viral infection of the nerve sheath that causes a painful, burning rash. It is caused by the varicella-zoster virus which is usually contracted from another person who has had chickenpox. Shingles treatment options include antiviral medications, antiviral creams, and corticosteroids. .Shingles covers the same area as chickenpox, but the rash is usually more widespread and painful. It can take weeks or months for a shingles rash to heal.Shingles is caused by reactivation of the varicella virus, dormant in nerve cells that remain in the body after an earlier chickenpox infection. The shingles outbreak typically occurs on one side of the face or body; this may be followed by pain and redness at other sites on the body. In some cases, a person might feel “something crawling” under their skin prior to developing symptoms.

HSV-1 typically causes cold sores around the mouth and HSV-2 typically causes genital herpes.
