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

I have this red spot forming on my lip and would like to know if it's forming into a pimple a herpes.

It's hard to say: Without seeing it. If you have a history of herpes and have medication for it, you would want to start that early. If not, you may need to just wait and see what happens to it in the next 24 hours; you should know by then. Certainly, seeing your own doctor to have it checked would be the way to know. Read more

Cold sores: Will go away in 7-10 days. This type of spot may show up from an injury to the area as well and sometimes you do not even know how it occurred. Watch it and see and if necessary consult your dentist again or your md if it last more than 7-10 days and shows no signs of improvement. Read more

I get cold sores and this last one I had left a bright red spot on my lip. Like a scar. The cold sore is healed though. Will this scar go away?

I get cold sores and this last one I had left a bright red spot on my lip. Like a scar. The cold sore is healed though. Will this scar go away?

Yes, most likely: Most cold sores are pretty superficial and will leave a reddened area for a while which usually fades over months, not days. If the cold sore had a secondary infection or the scab was picked, it can injury the deeper layer of skin and cause it to scar. This generally doesn't happen Read more

Red spot and a few darker spots on the underneath side of lips. Protected sex but unprotected oral to bf. Doesn't hurt. What are they?

Red spot and a few darker spots on the underneath side of lips. Protected sex but unprotected oral to bf. Doesn't hurt. What are they?

Hard to say: Honestly, without a picture of what these spots look like or seeing them in person, it will be incredibly difficult to diagnose this over the internet. The good news is that if they don't hurt and don't look like little vesicles, then it's probably not herpes.But you may need to have actual eyes on it for an official diagnosis and if you got your genital warts from your bf, I couldn't rule that out Read more

Red spot on lip caused from biting it?

Red spot on lip caused from biting it?

What makes red spots: Could be an area of trauma, like biting, or an early form of oral cancer. Red spots are a particular concern. If its directly related to a spot you are always biting then its likely a chronic inflammation area and may stay red as long as reinjury occurs. To be safe, have it checked periodically by a physician or dentist. Read more

Viral exanthem: This sounds like one if many viruses that can present with blisters or small sores on the surfaces of the inside of the mouth. The most important thing to do is stay calm and keep your child away from other children until the red and white spots go away. Treat fevers with Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin, push clear liquids, and have your doctor take a look at this to get a better idea of what it is Read more
