Campho-Phenique Maximum Strength can help dry the blisters and also has antibacterial properties
Tea tree oil diluted with a carrier oil is good antiviral as is Lavender..

Sore mouth needs to run its course but watch for Secondary infection...do wear gloves when handling her..

Happy bleats is right most meds will just keep it clean and make it a bit easy on them. I don't know if you have ever had a cold sore but they suck. When it starts drying out is the worst since it cracks. For the most part I leave sore mouth be since I try not to stress them out with giving meds but keep a good eye on it. For the ones that seem to get it bad I use neos**** but am going to try that tomorrow next time.

I've always herd it just has to run its corse.

I used a little triple antibiotic on the bad blisters the one time we had it luckily it wasn't bad and only one goat was effected.

I've never herd of today for this I've used today at the first sign of mastitis and it cleared her right up I always keep some on hand.

I use the campho-phenique. It has always worked wonders for us.

I've seen quite a few sore mouth cases being that we show so much. This has always worked for us just be careul not to touch it yourself and don't contaminate the bottle.
