But the problem now is he has them in and around his nose big and very sore should i be worried or should i just keep putting on the Acitop creme?

It seems that your son's fever blisters have spread to around his nose and the blisters are large and painful. It will be difficult to treat them with the Acitop cream alone. It would be best to ask your doctor see him and to treat him with an anti-viral medicine known as Acyclovir.
