I broke out with a fever blister on my left lower lip. within a week my left cheek, lip and face has gone numb with ear pain as well. I have had fever blisters in the past and as much as they are bad, they have never produced these kinds of complications before. I do not have medical insurance and cannot afford to go to hospital. Am I in danger here? Do I forget about the money? I'm scared I won't regain feeling to my face.
