Q Hi, I've had a small colorless bump on my lower lip. You can't really notice that it's there but I can feel it. It's underneath the skin, if that makes sense. It's been there for a week and almost resembles a very small cyst. It hasn't hurting at all but now it feels like a small zit. If it were anywhere else, I would just determine it to be a blemish but it's on my lip, which is weird. It's not oozing or anything and doesn't appear like it could be popped. It's right on the edge of my lower lip. It feels like a round bump. Do you think it's just cyst? cold sore? zit? I'm not sure if I should see a derm. about it or just wait to see if it goes away or changes.

It really could be either a cyst or if it is located right on the edge of the lip, a breakout issue that simply has not come to a head. Unfortunately issues like this cannot be diagnosed via the Internet, therefore an appointment with a dermatologist in your local area is a good idea. Best skin care wishes.
