Cold sores

Also known as: Fever blisters
Cold sores, sometimes called fever blisters, are groups of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth. The skin around the blisters is often red, swollen and sore. The blisters may break open, leak a clear fluid, and then scab over after a few days. They usually heal in several days to two weeks.
