I get one or two big pimples above my upper lip every few months. I do not have acne anywhere else. how can i prevent these?

Staph infection?

Acne
Some people get colonized with staphylococcus in the nose, and sometimes will have a small outbreak in the area under their nose, especially after colds. If you're having frequent "pimples" they may be small boils that resolve spontaneously. Getting a prescription ointment and putting a small amount in the front of the nose with a Q-tip can help eradicate this carrier state.

I constantly have a red/dry "mustache" on my upper lip. i use benzoyl peroxide and moisturizer daily for acne. what can i do to calm redness?

Benzoyl peroxide

Face_washing
can cause the constant redness so if you are using it on your upper lip try stopping. Also try shea butter. Consider seeing an acupuncturist as well to calm the extra heat in your system...steroids would help but do not like to use them on face.

I have red bumps on my upper lip. They don't ooze like pimples, they just bleed!

Osler-Weber-Rendu, if you have had them your entire life. If not, or if these do not match the description you'll read online, please forgive me -- just my idea.

I am 22 wks pregnant and woke up with white pimples on my upper lip- I have never had a cold sore before so is this a pregnancy symptom?

Fordyce Spots

Fordyce spots on the lips or mouth take the form of small (around 1–2mm in diameter) yellow-white spots in the oral area – on and near the lips and around the mouth. Fordyce spots appear on the lips when ectopic sebaceous glands become too full with oil or pus, resulting in the appearance of yellow or white spots, most commonly at the border of the lips - known as sebaceous hyperplasia.

I hav little dry sore pimples on my upper lip that come and go its been 6 months I think it's herpes,how can I make them go away forever?

Oral Herpes

Pimples
Oral herpes, known as "cold sores" is activated by a herpes virus. The virus is activated during an infection, sunlight, stress. You can't make them go away forever. They usually spontaneously resolve. Depending on how often you have these episodes, your doctor can prescribe a pill or topical cream for treatment.

I have tiny painless pimples on my upper lip and below my mouth/on my chin. I can pop them and clear fluid comes out. Also, tingling on my face.

Herpes

Head-face-chin
this sounds like a herpes infection, especially with the tingling. this is self limiting , but it can be greatly shortened by anti-virals please visit your local dermatologist or your primary care doctor for help
