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

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

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
