Complex & Individual: variations are huge. While hair follicles/hair growth do respond to both local blood flow & hormones in different ways in different parts of the body, scientific understanding of how these factors quantitatively influence hair follicle response remain way beyond current medical understanding with any clarity. So yes, an indication, but of what is most anyone's guess. Good luck. ...Read more

Herpes simplex?: If these are painful and recur in the same place, they are probably herpes simplex. Your physician knows of medicine that can stop them. ...Read more

Sounds like angioma: sounds like a tiny blood vessel, usually due to trauma. I would see dermatologist if you are worried, and laser will get rid of it. But you can make other ones but they are nothing to worry about. Hope that helps ...Read more

Get serious about Rx: You're an adult now and you need to insist on scientific management of your acne. I'm sorry it was neglected when you were a teen, and your scars can be made less noticeable only by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. The lump also needs to be seen. Topical benzoyl peroxide, plus whatever else prescription-strength is required; your family physician can advise you. ...Read more

It may be PCOS: or polycystic ovary syndrome which is a hormonal problem that leads to the symptoms you describe. Your doctor can do an exam and some tests to confirm this. Treatment would be getting pregnant or taking certain birth control pills, metformin, spironolactone or losing some weight. You might also be reacting to stress or exposure to drugs like marijuana. www.pcosfoundation.org ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

Maybe: There are oil glands on the edges of the lips. That means one can get plugged oil glands and occasionally a pimple there. Plugged oil glands may come 1-3 at a time. After the stuff comes out, it should heal up fine. Herpes cold sores are often a cluster of 3-10 tiny bumps, and don't contain pus or oil. Cold sores break easily, can ooze a bit, as if the surface got scraped away, and they crust up. ...Read more

I have 6 small pimples above my upper lip. They start to fade away but reappear within a few days, they have white tips,are painful.  What can I do?

Benzoyl peroxide: It is common for teenagers to get some acne. Try over the counter benzoyl peroxide treatment to try to get rid of it. Apply it to dry skin about 15 minutes after washing. It may take a few weeks to clear up. Also see this Mayo clinic site for more information. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/acne/basics/treatment/con-20020580 ...Read more
