Mucocele: Fluid filled sacs that appear under the tongue or inside of the lip are usually mucoceles. These structures form when salivary ducts become blocked. They are harmless and usually go away on their own with time. When large enough to interfere with speech or normal mouth function, evaluation is warranted. Self drainage of mucoceles is not recommended. ...Read more

Does it change?: If you have recently bumped the lip, it is most likely a mucous retention phenomenon or mucocele. The lesion occurs when the duct of one of the 1000s of minor lip salivary glands is injured. The gland continues to pump saliva, but it gets "backed up" into a small- large bump. Best to have it evaluated to rule out fibroma, lipoma, cysts, other causes. ...Read more

Herpes Labialis?: Your symptoms could be due to herpes labialis. It is difficult to confirm without seeing the lesions and possibly obtaining a herpes culture. Herpes labialis is caused by HSV type 1, and outbreaks are usually due to physical or emotional stress, or excessive sun UV exposure. You can try Abreva, which is over the counter, but expensive. ...Read more
