2 Bumps

This is probably a really stupid question, but what the heck is this?

Ok at the top of peak on one side of my top lip, I have a bump that feels exactly like a pimple (small, smooth, a little sore), but it doesn't look like one. It's right on the edge of my lip and I have no idea what it is.

  • Sounds like either a cold sore or a pimple. Sometimes you'll get one of those "blind" pimples which hasn't become red or a raised bump yet & I think they hurt worse than anything! You could try the warm washcloth to see if you can bring it to the surface. I've even used hydrocortisone cream on pimples to take the redness away & have the swelling go down.

  • Well, it could be a cold sore or fever blister.
    Or it might be a pimple. I've gotten them right on the edge of my lip before, they hurt like hell and since it's right on the edge I don't think they can grow too big. Try a hot washcloth over the area.

  • Cold sore/herpes or pimple would be my only guesses.
