Common Questions and Answers about What does a lip blister look like


Is there anything i can do to at least calm it down ? or possibly treat it? It <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> not look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> cold sore to me because usually it is around my mouth if i do get it. but this is so puzzling because it formed over night and i literally woke up like this. i dont remember eating anything that would cause this. i didnt have a cut on that part of my lip where it would have a chance to get infected. i basicallly dont feel like i did anything to make this happen. it just did. overnight.
We aren't sure what they are, but thinking back about the cold sore, I could have given it to him. anyways, the bumps don't look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> the pictures I see online. They looked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> small bug bites to start with, but my boyfriend squeezed it thinking it was a pimple and now it has a scab on it. They never turned into ulcers or lesions and are going away now. They never burned or anything and he said they barely itched. anyways, it's been about 5 days and the bump looks more like a scab now.
I noticed a small single blister like bump in my upper lip actually on the part that connects the lip to the gums. It did look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> waterfilled <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>. after messing with it for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> while with my tongue subconciously it did seem to go away within a few hours. There was no pain whatsoever and no noticable redness. I thought maybe a mucoclele until i read that they are usually only on the bottom lip and rarely the top.
for the first few days it was varrying in size,feeling flat,then bumpy. just yesterday, sat, it began to look more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> tiny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> with clear fluid. this time it appeared lower on the lip than last time. No pain,swelling,change in size or burnning on the spot. I do feel some very light tingling and burning around the edge of my lips off and on trough the day. these feelings are so light that i dont know if the're real or me being paranoid. Results should be in by tuesday.
You should see a dermatologist with this. I am not sure wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t it is- it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> not look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> eczema from the picture. It is possible that it is a cold sore, but I cannot be sure. In the meantime, treat it like it is contagious and be sure to wash your hands frequently to prevent spreading it. Good luck.
Can cold sores look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> pimples as in small red bumps or <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> it have to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> thing? and also, today someone ate from my fork, and in general i have a thing where i dont share cups or bottles or ustensils but a friend today ate frm my fork without realising so i made a mental note to not use it.. a few minutes later without realising i ate from the fork, LaTER on i realised the person had a pimple like bump on the curve of the upper lip.
Wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> relief. I've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> tiny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> in the same spot for the last year. I'll pop it and it may or may not come right back. Thought I was alone on this one. Thanks to everybody for sharing.
I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> on the inside of my lip. I've had it for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> few weeks now. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>n't hurt but it always gets in the way when I eat and sometimes I accidentally bite it. I'm also in band and when i close down on my mouthpiece, it gets in the way. I don't know what it is or what to do... any suggestions?
One more thing, I noticed there is a red spot on my buttocks, kind of like a pimple that has been rubbed/opened and only hurts if it is touched and it's more of a really slight burning feeling, the feeling you get if you touched an open pimple on your face, could this be herpes that I could have accidentally transferred before I developed the blister on my lip?
It pretty-much stayed the same in look for some time...very much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> you would get on your foot/hand if you over rubbed it against something. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>n't hurt unless I rub it (with a kleanex or tissue), and it's progressively getting smaller. There's no real color to it (sort of looks like my lip has been bitten), but there's small white dots next to it...not sure if they were there before. although reading through the forum, it seems those dots are normal.
about 2 months ago I got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> red blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> on my bottom lip, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> month went by and I didnt really think too much about it and left it.....after that it was annoying me and I decided that my best option would be to pop the blister to get rid of it. I know now that this was a very bad decision!! The blister formed into a scab which bled a couple more times when I caught the scab....it looked very unsightly and my friend advised the best thing to do is put on some blistex.
My difficulty is in being able to schedule an appointment with a doctor while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> flare-up occurs so that the doctor may look at my lips and I've never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lab culture done on the discharge. These are my questions. One, any ideas of what it might be? and two, is it possible to walk into a lab clinic and request a culture during a flare-up without a doctor referral?
With no pain (until you popped it), and protected sex, herpes is a bit less likely. On the other hand, a "blister" is consistent with the way a herpes outbreak would look. But typically there is more than one, and you would normally have also had a fever, swollen groin lymph nodes, etc. It's possible your Dr tested you for HSV 1&amp;2 or not, it seems to vary from doctor to doctor. But usually you can call in and clarify which tests were run.
For a long time, maybe about 6 months, i have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> on my bottom lip. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> long time ago, ive popped it several times, and there was blood and something stringy. after popping it over and over again, I've left it alone. It still exists but has shrunk and is painless. I have not had any doctor look at it. Just yesterday i got a small colorless blister on the right inner-cheek. it is too small to pop, but it really bothersome. It is painless.
Let me start by saying I have been with the same man for 25 years. Last year I had an enouncter with of all people my girlfriend. We kissed and she performed oral sex on me. I know it was not planned somethng that just happened. a few days after the encounter I did not feel normal downstairs. I felt a little raw and irritated. I kind of brushed it off but then started thinking what could I have picked up. It got worse before it got better red irritated never saw any bumps or lessions.
around the same time, a few days after my barber shaved under my mustache with an electric clipper, I developed what may have been a cold sore right above my top lip. I felt some swelling below the surface of the lip<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very tiny bb. I felt like there may have been a pocket of puss under the surface, and I tried to pop it as soon as I could. I popped it and some watery puss came out.
a related discussion, <a href='/posts/san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>/458234'>Red Bump</a> was started.
I don't think it is a cold sore (herpes 1) because I have never had anything at all on my lips, it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> not look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>, it is not clustered with anything else, nor has it began to ooze. Can you in fact have a cold sore without those symptoms? Prior to this unknown bump appearing, my lips had been really dry so I was using a lot of vaseline and chapstick - not sure if it can be a clogged pore. It is not a mucocele, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever, as it is on the outside of my mouth.
another description is that it look as if I bit down on my lip real hard which I did not do. The dark discoloration in my lip <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> not hurt, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>, or itch. I do not believe that it has grown in size but now I am concerned that I may have received a disease from this girl. I have applied chap stick, balm, etc... Nothing works and the line is still present. Now when I say line I mean that it is about 1/4 of an inch in width.
If the bump looks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span> which is on the skin rather than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bump or cyst that is under the skin, it is probably not a rheumatoid nodule. Still, with your fingers hurting and the bump near a joint, I think you should have your doctor take a look at it. It is possible to have more than 1 type of arthritis at once. I know because I do (leave it to me to pick a short straw!) Please let us know what you find out.
it is a hormone imbalance that causes the skin pigment to change color.....makes me look <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> i have two little spots of dirt on my upper lip...it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> go away when the hormones level back out, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever i have never had the skin raised.
feels like a piece of tape stuck to my lip - annoying. Went away for wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t seemed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> couple of days and then was back and now it's been another 2-3 weeks. BUT, I also had been dieting and using supplements and cleansing products which I have since stopped taking. I wonder if those had something to do with it. Can't keep enough lip salve on it and can't stop messin' with it by biting or picking at it. SOOO annoying. Hoping it goes away now that I've stopped taking the diet pills.

Is it safe to say it's not swelling from herpes? Should that have blistered by now if it were? also, here's a picture where you can see spots (presumable from popping the tiny 'pimples') around my lips. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> anything look herpetic to you (sorry for the low resolution): http://img245.imageshack.us/my.php?image=all1qs7.
Well not too great because it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>n't last long but it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> help with the chapped lips and offers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> temporary shine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> I have used lipgloss. My boyfriend has even resorted to using it so he can kiss me. He is not allowed to kiss me when he has chapstick on becuase I have had small reactions that way as well.
as for the lip ulcer, it <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> not look anything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> typical cold sore. and I was under the impression that contracting HSV 2 was not likely in the oral area. I have never had a symptom like this and have recently been tested for all STDs other than herpes test was not offered. I also rarely engage in sexual activity due to the hypochondria. I guess my main concern is spreading it and the psychological effects I know I will have if I am labled to have herpes.
I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> small red bump on my upper lip, it allmost looks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> very small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blister</span>. It just appeared there about two monthes ago. I am the only one who can see it, as it's allmost inside my mouth. It's pritty small, and I don't think it's a wart or cold sore. I have looked at pictures of these, and it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>nt act or look like ether one. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> not hurt or bleed unless I pick at it. I can feel it though. and I fear a future boyfriend may also feal it when we kiss.
If I do nothing to it, it just crusts over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> it is forming <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> scab but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> few days later the dead skin/scab falls off, but the red spot is still there. If I apply neosporin or lip-balm to it constantly, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>n't crust over and the red dot shrinks a little in size, but the red dot still remains. The spot an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> not cause pain and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> not puss or anything.
i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> clear bump on my lip with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> lumpy bottom lip it feels lumpy,and looks lump with this clear bump.
2 at that and they just look at me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> im <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> retard and dont understand wh<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t i am trying to tell them. I am currently useing protopic and before that was aquaphor but also because allergic to that and just made my lips worse. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> n e one kno if there is a cure for this. My next step is to be sent away to a major hospital in another state for higher up testing and dont wanna travel 3 hours everytime that i need to be seen.
