Between my lower lip and chin, there's like a small small bump. It hurts and have no idea what it is. Any help? The dot isn't really visible. Pimple?

Skin bump / papule: When it's invisible, doctors can't diagnose. If painful, it is probably a tiny infection, either viral or bacterial. A routine pimple would be bacterial, so you could dab a tiny spot of antibiotic ointment on it; bactroban (mupirocin) or polysporin would be better than neosporin, which can cause an allergy. If not itchy, it's probably not an allergy. It will change in time. Wait and see. Then go see a doc. ...Read more
