I have a red bump on my upper lip. I asked a doctor about it (I'm pregnant) and he said it looked like a reaction to too much lip balm. However, it's really not going away. It's kind of in a bad spot and I tend to break it open now and then. It bleeds like CRAZY and I can't always seem to get it to stop for a few minutes unlessI apply good pressure by basically squeezing my lip. Not much of any other fluid seems to come out other than blood. I've been putting campo-phenique (spelling) on it and it appeared to help but I've only been using that a day now.
It kind of started as like an irritation or blister. Then it broke open and bled, and since then hasn't really scabbed over or anything. I don't see a whitehead or anything on it and I've not gotten any fluid out of it other than blood. It's very irritating and I'm getting pretty self consious about it.
I'm hoping it may scab over soon but since it's on my lip I'm not sure that it will. It tends to get bigger when I eat - seems like the more I move my mouth the more it'll get irritated and swell up. Then it goes back down but it's still there.
