Viral flair: Herpes Simplex is a virus that can outbreak as a cold sore or as an entity like what you are describing. This occurs when a person is ill or stressed. It usually occurs because the immune system of the individual is compromised. Though there are over the counter treatments, it is best and more rapidly treated with oral and topical Zovirax (acyclovir). See your MD and confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

I had an allergic reaction to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) on 1/11/14 (swollen lips and rashes on abdomen & back arm). I was given doxycycline hyclate. Rash became bumps?

I had an allergic reaction to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) on 1/11/14 (swollen lips and rashes on abdomen & back arm). I was given doxycycline hyclate. Rash became bumps?

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim): If you meant that the rash was progressing without interruption despite switching to doxycycline, I would venture that the rash is just from the progression of the sulfa rash since the process will likely last for a week or two. Beware of sunlight exposure from doxycyline which may give a nasty sunburn for some people. ...Read more

Once there is injury, these bacterial can infect the tissue and cause swelling, pus and other complication. I recommend to see your pcp and he may help you. ...Read more

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

It: It sounds like it may be a cyst. However other lesions are possible (abscess, wart, etc.) therefore you should have your family doctor or gynecologist take a look at it.

Why do I get a rash on my lips now and again? Red little bumps itchy and swollen. Corners of mouth as well.

Seems like cold sore: Your description sounds like that of a cold sore, which appears as groupings of little fluid-filled vesicles about the corners of the mouth, not both simultaneously but successive bouts can alternate from side to side. It's a viral infection, for which most people in society (85-905) have the causative virus, so it's very common. ...Read more

My lip are a little swollen and a little tight, my face is itchy and I have tiny bumps around nose and mouth. I try using A&D Ointment?

Perhaps an allergy: What you are describing may be an allergic reaction--either to a medicine or cosmetic that you are putting on your face, exposure to something like poison I've (where you touch your face after brushing against it) or a reaction to a food or medicine. A & D ointment won't hurt, but it's not anti-allergy. Anti-allergy medicines and creams are available over the counter. If it persists see a doctor. ...Read more

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

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
