I have a 1-2 mm red dot on my bottom lip. I'm worried enough to ask but not sure its worth a biopsy/scar messing up my vermillion border.

Dot: If this is something new it is likely an infection like a cold sore or impetigo. Both are conditions that should resolve in days to weeks. If this is something that has been there awhile then I would see your doctor or a skin specialist. ...Read more

Prominent dot on lip: It may be a prominent vessel on the lip or a small hemangioma. I would not worry about it unless it gets bigger. I can be easily excised in the office if it really bothers you. Good luck and feel better ...Read more

I had a small black spot on my bottom lip that fastly turned into two black lips w/ redness, swelling & itching. Any ideas?

Seek help soon: If it is rapidly increasing and getting worse, see a doctor asap. It may be a bad infection that leads to cell death causing necrosis (turns black) or it can be skin cancer. It really depends on what it looks like and may need to be biopsied. ...Read more

Red circular mark on my bottom lip, barely visible unless close up, tiny bump in the middle, what could it be?

Red circular mark on my bottom lip, barely visible unless close up, tiny bump in the middle, what could it be?

Doctor can check: One's primary care doctor can look, with a magnifier, but such a tiny bump could be a tiny comedone (whitehead or blackhead) if on the outer edge of the lip. At that location, one can also have tiny blocked oil glands, which don't need treatment, but might contain some skin oils trapped under the surface. ...Read more

I had 2 small white heads on my bottom lip I popped them (bad move) now its red how can I make it go away faster and make it less red...

Anti-inflammatory: Redness usually describes inflammation which results from "popping a whitehead." of course, we can't assume it was a whitehead-- could be a herpes sore (cold sore) which is much more common on the lip. If it is herpes, a topical or oral anti-viral would help. If it was a common pimple, a non-steroid anti-inflammatory would help the redness. Could also be a cyst or milium... ...Read more

What could it be? I have a red spot on my bottom lip, no pain, no blister.

What could it be? I have a red spot on my bottom lip, no pain, no blister.

Tough to say: Diagnosing "spots" is best done by a good history and physical examination. Factors such as age of pt, size of the spot, duration of the spot, precipitating events, possible allergens that may have caused the spot, etc. Are all things that go into a proper diagnosis. I would see your dr. Or a dermatologist (skin specialist) to get a definative diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more

My bottom lip goes extremely red and abit swollen after contact with anything. (water, food, cream) It also peels, please can someone help?

Cheilitis: This is a very difficult to treat condition because the causes are difficult to pinpoint. Some possibile causes are allergic or irritant contact sensitivity. This could be a lip balm, lip stick, tooth paste or mouthwash. There are other less common causes. Another cause, either primary or secondary is lip licking. Until you pay attention to this it's not always evident that is what you are doing. ...Read more

I keep getting a on and off metallic/blood taste in my mouth I also get a on and off red patch inside my bottom lip along with it?

Metal taste: Do you have any fillings that might be loose? Do you have acid reflux? Any medications that could be causing this? I would start with visit to dentist and if all checks out fine there then see an MD for further workup with some blood tests! ...Read more

I have a thin red rash under my bottom lip. How should I treat it? I used to get it when I ate ketchup and a couple years back when I used to smoke but it always went away. Now it won't.

I have a thin red rash under my bottom lip. How should I treat it? I used to get it when I ate ketchup and a couple years back when I used to smoke but it always went away. Now it won't.

Have it evaluated: It's not possible to make a diagnosis or specific recommendations without seeing you. However, a rash which won't clear up is not normal and could represent a skin cancer. It most likely can be treated in either case. I would make sure you mention it to your pcp and or make an appointment with a dermatologist. ...Read more

You need: To have a "hands on" examination of that lesion. I would suggest in the meantime that you stop using anything which may "hide" the underlying lesion.
