Need more info: Skin conditions are very difficult to comment upon without seeing them. Do you mean lip or the skin between your nose and lip? Are the bumps raised or flat? Are they less than a millimeter across? How long have they been there? Do they change? Come and go? Best to see your doctor for proper assessment. ...Read more

New lipstick?: Sudden rashes or bumps can be due to a new skin care product, cosmetic, sunscreen, or lip gloss, or even toothpaste or mouthwash. Stop anything new that you have begun using in the last month, including soaps, detergents, perfumes, etc. If this does not resolve in a few days, see a doc for a better answer based on an in-person exam. ...Read more

Get it checked if: It is difficult to say whether it is something to worry about or not. My best advice is to see if it resolves (goes away) in a few days. If it does, nothing to worry about. If it does get bigger, painful or worse, then you should have your primary care physician look at it. Mostly likely it isn't something to worry about. ...Read more

Lip rash: Lips have small glands in them just like other parts of the skin that keep the skin soft. It's possible that whatever activity you engaged in may have irritated the skin and caused these symptoms. Other things to consider are any new exposures that could have irritated your skin such as a new lipstick or even latex exposure. Safe sex is very important and good to talk to your partner about it. ...Read more

Not cold sores.: Cold sores are typically groups of painful blisters, so doubt that it's that. May be having an allergic reaction to something. Try 1% Hydrocortisone cream. If that doesn't work, let a dermatologist have a direct look at it. ...Read more
