After you’ve delivered your baby, you may think that the rough part is over and that your body will return to normal over the next few months. In most cases, this will be true. But the fluctuation of hormones after you give birth can trigger headaches. You may also experience a headache if you chose to receive an epidural during delivery.
Fever blisters go by other names, including cold sores and — more ominously still — oral herpes. The discomfort and embarrassment your child experiences when she has a fever blister won’t last long if the sores are tended to properly. Most fever blisters resolve on their own in about a week. They’ll go away faster, however, if your child uses good hygiene and simple self-care strategies.
