Cold sore vs pustule: It may be a cold sore, which is common in young people and often induced with stress. Cold sores go away on their own, but they can scab and be painful. Can treat with soothing/numbing cream.

Alternatively, it could be a ruptured zit or other skin infection that drains pus. If you already popped it, then apply antibiotic ointment 2-3x day like Bacitracin or neosporin, available OTC. ...Read more

I have a small bump on the inside lip of my vagina . Its a little sore but nothing major . What could it be .?

Unsure: There are a multitude of things which can cause "bumps" in and around the vagina. It's difficult to say without an exam. Some of these things are totally benign (like an inclusion cyst) but some can be more problematic (like a bartholin's gland cyst or abscess or a herpes infection). I recommend you see your gynecologist and have it examined. Good luck. ...Read more

A small bump just appeared on my upper lip, not on the edge more to the center, from stepping outside. Cold sore maybe?

Cold sores are hollo: Typically on the outside at the border of the red. If it recurs in the same place then cold sore is just about the only possibility, otherwise dermatologic conditions are hard to diagnose without seeing them.
Cold sores are hollow, fluid filled, and temporary--going into healing in under a week. Warts, moles, tumors, other infections don't heal up as fast and need treatment. ...Read more

I had a small cold sore and tiny cut on my lip, which was not bleeding. I shared a cigarette with stranger, what sort of diseases i can get?

Rare..: It would be very uncommon to see you infected with any disease just for the fact of sharing a cigarette, unless you knew that this person suffers from a particular disease. Cold sores are very common and will probably go away in a few days. Lip balms will help recover. If no improvement after 10 days, see a doctor. ...Read more
