911DOC :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

911DOC :

Do you mean on the inside or oustide?

911DOC :

A regular 'pimple' can easily form on the upper or lower lip in the regular skin...

Customer:

ON THE LOWER LIP IN THE CORNER ?

911DOC :

on the pink skin of the lip, the mucous membrane something that looked like a pimple could easily form, but it would be called an ulcer or a vesicle or a mucocele or something like that... a different thing...

911DOC :

sure it could... what does it look like?

Customer:

like a small pump but no yeelow or ugly puss. i dont think it is a cold sore since it does not tingle

Customer:

i also get alot of pimped on my face

911DOC :

probably a pimple... try some benzoyl peroxide on it and some warm soaks and see if you can bring it to a head...the benzoyl peroxide will also help with the other pimples.

Customer:

i popped it today and does not hurt.

Customer:

can it be a cold sore?

911DOC :

unlikely to be a cold sore if it is isolated... .by itself...

Customer:

if it was a cold sore there would be a few bumps?

911DOC :

just watch it over the next few days...

911DOC :

should go completely away...

911DOC :

if it heals it wasnt.

911DOC :

if more bumps come up then it may have been a cold sore...

Customer:

i got this on saturday and only popped it today

Customer:

but only one bump

Customer:

isolated bump

911DOC :

probably just a pimple... nothing to worry about...

911DOC :

let me know if you have any more questions.

Customer:

thank you very much
