My fever blisters appear around allergy season. With sinus drainage setting up acid overload in the stomach I find an antacid helps greatly to squelch the cause. Then I hit the lip with what ever topical cream/balm/lotion I have on hand. I do not recommend popping the blister, secondary infections are harder to deal with. Experiment with the already stated ointments and OTC remedies to find what your body responds to. Salt or nail polish remover would be ones to avoid, in my opinion. There is a difference in drying up and irrating an already inflamed area. Common sense says lots of liquids and extra rest, too. Good luck!
