A plastic surgeon or dermatologist will take a look at your skin type and determine the best approach. ...Read more

Zit on chin near lip, swollen near zit, also looks like fat lip. once able to pop zit, now painful to movement/touch, suggestions?

Pimple: Any acne in the triangle from lips to top of nose should not be popped due to chance of spreading infection to the cavernous sinus.
