Blister on lips after filler
Blistering on the lips after filler is not a common complication. Blisters are most likely due to herpetic infection and can be present on the interior, aphthous ulcer, or the exterior of the lip. In patients with a history of herpes labialis infection, it is a good idea to have oral therapy if needed after any procedure performed around the mouth. Treatment of these types of lesions can involved topical or oral anti-virals. For soothing pain, applying a calcium based anti-acid tablet directly to the area can improve the pain acutely. Blistering could also theoretically occur from excessive swelling of the lip but this would generally not be localized.
Blisters on Lips After Juvederm
I suggest going back to your physician to get a formal evaluation to determine if this is a cold sore or apthous ulcer versus filler migration/swelling or other. Best, Dr. Emer.
Blisters after Juvederm Injections in your lips
It is possible that the injections have triggered a cold sore. I would return to your treating physician for examination to confirm the diagnosis and best treatment. Best, Dr. Green
Swollen, painful blistered lips after Juvederm
Thank you for asking about your Juvederm.
- I am sorry this happened.
- Persistently swollen, painful lips with or without blisters after a filler injection are almost certainly from a herpes (cold sore) lip infection that was reactivated by the injection.
- You need a prescription for Valtrex or other antiviral and will need to take it (probably) for at least six weeks.
- You need to take this or another preventive anti-viral before any future filler injection and for 5 days afterwards.
- There is no shame in having a herpes lip infection - about 90% of Americans now have this chronic virus infection.

Sore inside mouth after lip filler
It looks like a canker sore (aphthous ulcer), but could be herpetic. It needs evaluation by your doctor. Rinse with listerine to keep it clean.
Sore after filler
Thank you for your question. The sore inside your mouth appears to be an aphthous ulcer - these can be due to minor trauma like fillers to your mouth area. I would advise you to ask your physician to prescribe "magic mouthwash" as this will ease the pain rapidly. OTC you can try something like Zilactin, Orabase or Orajel. Good luck and the lips look fantastic!! Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
