Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

Ive had these before they started under my nose and above my lips.
didn't think anything of it just treated them like I would a zip/pimple.
cause thats what they look like zits.

they are pus filled bumps. they don't hurt just throb like a zit/pimple would.
they wouldn't last long if I treated them with Salicylic acid [whats in my acne cream]
but lately ive been getting them one after another
and they have now moved to the edges of my lips

I don't think they are cold sores or herpes
if they go away so quickly if I apply my acne medicine just twice a day. then they are gone.

they are small pus filled bumps
raised sometimes [not all the time] with a bigger red bump under it.

they throb but don't hurt
but now are spreading or moving.

my doctor is out of town for 2 weeks
I don't want to see the other doc standing in for him.

Hi left2wonder,
Are you a male or female? If you are male do you have any problems while shaving?

I am male. 21 years old.
I don't have to shave that area too often.

they are half on my lip and half off.

the ones around my nose don't last
as long they dry up and go away pretty quickly
but the ones on my lip take several days to a week.

How good is you immune body system? I don't want to frighten you but this also might be herpes. If this is the case then Vitamin C should be helpful in preventing this. Do you think it might be herpes?

why I said I don't think they are herpes or cold sore is cause
they aren't big clusters they are just one single bump
and they don't turn brown?

Hi left2wonder,
Do you have oily skin? Do you have these pimples anywhere else on you face?

It's been a few days and I wonder are you any better now? Are they going away or are there still there.

ok I went to the doctor but he was booked so I didn't get in till a week after
and by the time I went the sores were gone.
I told him what I thought it was and prescribed Valtrex ive taken 3 since I got them.
but now that ive done a little more googling I want a second opinion
because they really don't look like cold sores or herpes.
they are One single white bump that look like a zit. they don't turn brown or cluster.
I will ask for a blood test.
