my 5 year old has a fever blister on his lower lip. i feel like there is nothing i can do for him. i try to encourage hand washing and not to rub his mouth on blankets and things like that. i feel like i am being mean to him by telling him no you can not drink after me or sissy if we are still using the same cup. i dont want him to feel like i am treating him different but i dont want anyone else to get it. any suggestions on what i can do.

I would simply explain to him why all that is. He's old enough to understand that things can be passed on through germs and things. Just talk to him about it and he'll understand why you're doing it and that you aren't just being mean to him.
