Lip blister scab

Common Questions and Answers about Lip blister scab


Avatar n tn This is the second time in 3 or 4 months that I've developed a small (maybe 2 or 4 mm in diameter) dark scab on my lower lip. I'm worried this is HSV and I've inadvertently spread it to my partner. It's been about a year since my last STD test. HSV-1 and -2 were both negative. I guess what's weird is that, if it is HSV, I've never had an "outbreak" other than this small scab. Any idea if this typically HSV or just a bad case of chapped lips?
Avatar f tn One day while biting and picking at my lips I noticed that one part that I was biting on the bottom of my lip started to hurt, since I never realize that I pick at my lip and bite it, I noticed that everytime I bit that area it hurt but if I left it alone it didn't hurt well after a few hours before bed time I looked in the mirror and only saw dry lip, but I picked at that area again and it hurt so being a lip picker I ripped the dry skin off and noticed clear fluid came out, it didn't bleed.
Avatar n tn now five hours later it's a white yellowy scab on my lip. kind of feels like l could rip it off like a scab but still has a bumpy feel not flat like a scab. really tiny though...... no redness at all. cold sore or herpes???? hopefully nothing. what time period would it take to develop if it was one of those two. Could i have gotten it from drinking from the same cup as someoneelse. Because i have noticed from time to time that my brother and his wife will get cold sores on their lips.
Avatar f tn I have a red patch on my upper lip that is red, dry, but no blister and does not itch. It burns when I get somethign acidic on it. I noticed that I had a blister under my tongue a few day ago. My upper lip feels a bit tight, like after getting windburn. I did have a scab over the area, like a layer of soft skin. I'm 51 years old, female.
Avatar m tn Hey, Recently I developed a large zit wth a whitish center just above my lip so the red did reach my lip line but nothing on my lip. it hurt to touch but didn't really itch or burn, there was no cluster of blisters or a point where it started to break open and ooze. It now 3 days later is a tiny scab thats a bit irritated and I'm confused and a bit scared on what to do.
Avatar m tn 48 hours ago, I made out with someone who had a cold sore scab on their lip. I didn't kiss the scab directly (it was in the far right side of the upper lip). OK, ok... now, I know there is a very real risk that I will end up with oral herpes because of this. My question is this: Is there any chance I may NOT end up with it? Or is it pretty much a done deal? I already have HSV2. Some people never learn! Anyone want to venture I guess? I will keep you all posted...
Avatar m tn I had something on my lip, it never turned into a blister but it was 2 small reddish scabs. I went to the doctors and he said it was a kind of cold sore but it wasn't raised from the skin, directly on my lip and when i got home the scabs came off, I'm confused.
Avatar f tn I too had a blister on my lip while having severally dry lips! I have never had a cold sore, but I did pop mine, not knowing that it was a blister because all I saw was dry skin, mine hurt to be touched though, but it was not red anywhere around, and didn't scab yellow like most cold sores typically do. Did you ever find out what it was??
Avatar n tn The blister formed into a scab which bled a couple more times when I caught the looked very unsightly and my friend advised the best thing to do is put on some blistex. Since I have used the blistex the red blood blister turned white and seemed to grow and look quite puss filled. I have since decided to stop using the Blistex I am now left with what could only be described as a wart like skin tag that is raised up from my lip.
Avatar n tn I have a small red, sometimes raw, blister in the middle of my upper lip, except for some initially burning (when it was at its most irated state) it does not hurt and does not itch. As a was of background, I remember having what appeared to be a very small cut in the middle of my upper lip a few months ago. I was thinking it may have been from shaving and it seemed to scab over then go away, then open again. I would apply chapstick or some other lip protection and that seemed to help.
Avatar f tn It was confirmed pus when my finger nails accidently tore it open on the bottom a bit when I was playing with my lip. Ever since that little opening happened it turned into sort of a scab (a dark color too) and still pusses up and everytime I smile really really hard puss oozes out. I'm not sure what it is and I'm scared. Is there some kinda treatment, cure? And what is the proper name to call this lip sore or thing what ever it is. Does it go away? And how long does it take?
Avatar f tn Pops up as a clear blister that opens and has a crusty scab. You must have seen some one with it as is very noticiable.
Avatar f tn This one was on the outside corner of my upper lip and was in the stage where there was a scab on it and it was not bleeding or had any discharge. Should I be worried about catching anything from licking my hand that just touched her clitoris? That was the only time I did this. I did not perform oral sex on her. Having sex from behind, I could feel the condom slipping off so I told her to stop and I pulled out. As I did, I pulled out of the condom too. The condom fell to the bed.
Avatar f tn He insisted on coming over and I gave him oral. The blister stage was over and it was a dry scab. Probably brown and red color from blood? Am I still contagious then? I didn't kiss him but gave him oral sex. Am I going to give it to him?
Avatar m tn It almost looks like a tiny canker sore, there is a very small scab, but is not completely on the inside of the lip. I am unsure what this could be. It didn't sweel up like a cold sore, it's only one bump, I wondered if it could be a cyst? or pimple? I have never had cold sores before, but have a history of canker sores.
Avatar f tn The dentist caught my mouth with the hot instrument and I now have a blister on the side of my lip. Any advice? Do I apply Vaseline only?
Avatar m tn Also, the swelling seems to be receding late in the day (still there though, numb feeling on lip) but a small whitish dot, almost like a pimple head is forming just below my lip. Could be an ingrown hair, not sure.
Avatar n tn I kept the cream and used it a couple of times in the past two years when I felt a tiny blister appear again and the blister went away by the next day. I have another breakout at the moment that is not responding to the cream that is now over 2 years old. I am using another antibiotic until I can get to the doctor for a new script. My lips feel dry and I do have swollen glands under my jaw on the side of the infection. Could this indeed be herpes? Is there another possibility?
Avatar n tn 4 days ago I pinched my lip and and a round blister with a scab in the middle came up. I pinched it again and tried to pull the scab off. Now my lower lip only is swolen more than ever 3 to 4 days later. I have the fatest lower lip ever. Very painful and lips are getting red around the edge due to swelling. Is this viral or bacterial or both. Is this herpies? There is considerable yellow thick puss inside but docs have told me not to touch it. Going to better hospital tomorrow.
Avatar f tn I pop'd it. My question is it looks like the lip healed where the zit was because my lip looks normal but then covers where the zit was and it looks like I have hsv1. Is this possible or do I have hsv1? It never itches or hurts but when I engage in oral sex it seems to irritate that spot making it more visible for a few days but with no itching or discomfort. Is this a sign and characteristic of hsv1?
Avatar m tn On Tuesday she txt me and told me she had a blister on her lip (I was ignorant to the fact that cold sores/blisters mean herpes).. Friday she said it was gone.. That Sunday we fooled around/oral/she kissed me all over.. I turned on the light and noticed a small tiny little dot on her lip and freaked when she explained that it was herpes but a scab and not contagious anymore (I promise/I know what I am talking about/etc). I had a heart attack. She said it was HSV 1 from when she was little..
Avatar f tn about a day ago i started havin a mild sorness on my right side of my throat i looked in the mirror and there is a relatively large yellowish blister there. its still not extremely sore but i was wondering what it could be. its not like strep i had a year ago with strep then i had small white bumps on each i said this is one on right side and is BIG. i also got a piercing on my right bottom lip and was wondering if that could have anything to do with it?
Avatar n tn Do you mean the same "color"? This doesn't sound herpes related. Herpes lesions blister, scab and heal. See your doctor if you're concerned.
Avatar n tn He said that if I didn't use Abreva right away, it could blister and that I was lucky it did not. If you have this dry spot on your lip that feels like a piece of tape is stuck to it, go to your local drugstore right away and get some Abreva. Good luck.
Avatar n tn If I do nothing to it, it just crusts over like it is forming a scab but a 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 doesn't crust over and the red dot shrinks a little in size, but the red dot still remains. The spot does not cause pain and does not puss or anything.

Avatar m tn I think i must have burned my lip skin with the last round of toothpase, since the thing was clearly open as watery oozing was present. The toothpaste burned the skin. I can see a bitty scab and my lip feels very tight. Before i went to sleep i ate a few more pistachios. Then a banana and a glass of carrot juice. As i was chomping away at the banana i literally felt the lump grow. The center of my lip was now bulbous. I decided to just head to bed and see what it would be like in the morning...
Avatar m tn it was dead center but more on the bottom of the lip if you want to say. it was resting on my bottom lip but it was on my upper lip, lets put it that way. just one bubble. i think it was clear or white liquid or a combo. clearish white maybe... no blood involved. kind of looked like a burn blister. I say I think it was clearish white because I immediately popped it when I realized it was there. . actually i just scrapped my teeth across it and it was gone. one swipe with my front two teeth.
Avatar m tn I found two random red spots on my INNER lips, one on my lower lip, one on the upper. They look like broken blood vessels, one semi-circle, and one a circle. They do not hurt, itch, tingle, and they have not changed in two days. My PCP confirmed they look like neither a cold sore or a canker sore; there's nothing to swab as it's not really a blister, just slightly elevated skin as if I'd bit my lip.
