My bottom lip has gotten swollen and gotten blisters from my girlfriend biting my bottom lip too hard. Is it something I should be worried about?

My bottom lip has gotten swollen and gotten blisters from my girlfriend biting my bottom lip too hard. Is it something I should be worried about?

Yes: Repeated damage to a bottom lip will cause changes in the lip and lead to a distorted appearance. If just one episode, the lip most likely will return to normal over time. If said girlfriend continues to bite, one might consider offering her a more durable part of the body to bite on... but it's hard to find a location that can withstand repeated biting. ...Read more

I have a blister like bump on my lip (at the bottom, on the outside) it came up without an itch and its just one blister unlike when I have coldsores?

Probably a cold sore: Oral herpes outbreaks (cold sores) can vary quite a bit. If same location as previous outbreaks, and if the individual "blister like bump" otherwise looks similar, then probably it's another herpes outbreak. Outbreaks can be treated, with much more rapid healing, with a single dose of valacyclovir. It must be taken within a day. Ask your doc for a prescription to have it on hand for next outbreak. ...Read more

What are water blisters & why am I getting them? They started just on my bottom lip but had one on my top lip yesterday which was quite big. Is popping them like I do the right way of dealing with them?

Viral infection: The collection of symptoms you describe point very clearly to a viral infection as the most likely cause. If they are multiple small blisters than come and go rather than one area on the outer lip which lasts a long time, then it is unlikely to be the herpes virus (cold sore virus). The good news is that these will run their course by themselves and don't require any specific treatment. ...Read more

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
