Lower lip is swollen, small red bump under the lip, is it a cold sore? I can feel the bump thro my lip. Not itchy, no feaver, lip feels numb

Can't be 100% sure: But what you're describing sounds a lot like the early signs of a cold sore. These are typically caused by a strain of the herpes virus that about 80% of people carry in their system. People usually get them when they are run down, or stressed (or have a "cold"). If you want to be pro-active, you can ask your doctor for a prescription for an anti-viral medication like "valacyclovir" which can help. ...Read more

My bottom lip is chapped, the skin that connects to my bottom lip is peeling. The last time this happened, I used Vaseline and got a cold sore. Idk?

My bottom lip is chapped, the skin that connects to my bottom lip is peeling. The last time this happened, I used Vaseline and got a cold sore. Idk?

Cold sore unrelated: I don't think that cold sore outbreak was directly related to the use of vaseline. Petroleum jelly (vaseline) actually is known to promote healing of damaged skin, since it helps 'seal in' the sensitive skin cells under the damaged area...then they can regenerate. Cold sores usually come out at times of stress- exams, break-ups etc, so I think this was unrelated. Best to keep stress to a minimum. ...Read more

I have black spots on my lips due to burning of hot water, please suggest me how to remove the spots?I am applying lemon juice but still no use!

Black spot: If the wound has not healed up yet, then wait. Lip tissues tend to regenerate pretty well. If the burn was deep, then scar tissue will form. It's not usually not black in color. You should probably see a doc to make sure there is nothing else going on such as infection. I would not apply lemon juice as it may cause more damage. ...Read more
