Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Dr. Wilson :

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

Yes i mean my upper lip of my miuth and there is no pain nor burning

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

mouth, sorry

Dr. Wilson :

can you describe this more?

Dr. Wilson :

Do you have any medical problems

Dr. Wilson :

Have you been in the sun a lot this summer

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

No i don't have any medical problems,

Dr. Wilson :

And, sun exposure??

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

and i have only been in the sun once when i went to splash town this summer

Dr. Wilson :

okay - this could be a simple pimple, acne, or a possible herpes infection - it would be hard to tell - but any of these problems would go away on their own.

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

But, i couldn't have herpes because i went to the doctor before i got this pimple to test for herpes and i was negative on all STD diseases

Dr. Wilson :

Awesome - most likely this is just a simple pimple - nothing more

Dr. Wilson :

What you might call a white head

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

is there something i can use to get rid of it

JACUSTOMER-o3qvrmdv- :

I just got really scared because i had never before had a pimple on that area

Dr. Wilson :

The best thing you can do is actually keep it clean - NO MAKEUP or lipstick on that area -

Dr. Wilson :

pimples occur because of small bits of bacteria getting into hair follicles

Dr. Wilson :

so, keeping your skin and face and mouth clean will help prevent them.

Dr. Wilson :
