Day One: There is puss oozing out of the blister. The day I had to meet a bunch of new people at church.
Day 2: We bought Abreva so I was hoping I'd wake up and it would be better but it was worse. I had to fly home this day. I sat in the last row of the plane and I was the last person on so I had to walk past everyone. Embarrassing.
This picture shoes how swollen it was.
Day 3: This was the day after taking the prescription my sister-in-law Heather was nice enough to write for me. A little less swollen.
Day 5: No more swelling, now just a scab.
Day 7: This is today. The scab is almost gone and I can almost smile. I'm starting to feel like I'll never have a normal lip again.
All I can say is I'm never going without chap stick again!
