I bit my boyfriends lip really hard and there's a lump now?

Probably bled: More than likely you caused bleeding inside the lip, and this formed a fibrous clot that now feels like a lump. If that, it will, slowly resorb. But it could be more serious like an infection/abscess, that may need antibiotic and surgical drainage/removal. A human bite is the dirtiest and most dangerous in the animal kingdom.

Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course. ...Read more

See Dentist: Your dentist may be able to modify the way your teeth come together so that you stop biting the area to allow it to heal. Once you start biting an area, it is common to bite it again in the same area. If you can get yourself to stop biting the area it most likely will clear up on it's own but it doesn't hurt to have your dentist take a look at it to make sure it's OK. ...Read more

I have a hard white lump on face above lip. I tried acne medicine and heat compress and its still there. Its been four weeks.?

Unwanted lumps: I would assume that after four weeks it is time to see an expert in skin or primary care medicine. You have given it the good try to see if this will disappear on its own.

And, unlike many other problems in medicine, often skin issues like this are easily diagnosed with direct examination.

Without knowing more I would guess this is a sebaceous cyst. But, without seeing it this one is hard know. ...Read more

Bone: You are probably seeing bony contours showing through the firm gum tissue, and likely on your lower front teeth. The dark red is probably the unattached (looser) mucosal tissue which connects to your lip. The color is due to the number of blood vessels present and the thinness of the tissue. All normal. If you press the lumps, they will probably be hard. Worry not. ...Read more

If they're attached below the teeth, they are likely tori which are harmless rock-hard bony growths. They can sometimes be related to heavy, chronic teeth clenching. If they are within the lower lip, they could be lymph nodes. If ur concerned, a quick visit to the dentist. ...Read more
