A member asked:

Small white painful pus filled bump on bottom lip, got worse when i popped it....what could it be?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Infection: Infections of the glands on the lips can become infected and cause an abscess. When you popped it the inflammation was extended into the surrounding tissues and made it worse. See you healthcare provider since you may need antibiotics. Drainage from the lips is towards the brain, so infections there can be serious.
