Note that this is not the std-form of herpes, which is generally herpes simplex ii and causes genital herpes. Anti-viral medicines can help. If this is a frequent occurrence, see your pcp for an evaluation. ...Read more

Can't tell without: Examining it. Sounds like a recurrent sebaceous cyst, or epidermal inclusion cyst. Simply popping it will not remove the sac that continues to produce the sebum (the white stuff), so a tiny local anesthesia operation may be needed. See your family doctor, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Possible abcess: It sounds very suspicious for an abcess forming down there, even though it hasn't come to a head yet. Do some warm compresses on the area and get into the doctor tomorrow to get it looked at and on to therapy if needed. Don't wait too long as these can get nasty quickly.. ... ...Read more

I have a small white head on my actual lip and I popped it and puss came out. I've head a cold sore before but this doesn't seem like one.?

Correct: This was not a cold sore. They don't have puss in them. It may have been a blocked oil duct of some kind. Either way, as long as it doesn't show any signs of infection, it's not dangerous for you. Hope it gets better! ...Read more

I had a blackhead on my lip line a few weeks ago and got it out since then there was a small bump it didn't hurt, now there is a white head it hurts?

No squeezing, soak: The small bump may have been a small area of inflammation, or just an irritation from the blackhead removal.

Now with the discomfort, there prob is some inflammation.
This can usually be controlled with warm, moist soaks, 3-4 times per day,
Wet a small facecloth, microwave it for 20-50 sec depending on the microwave. Hold it to the area till it is no longer warm. This is usually about 10 min. ...Read more

I believe I have a ingrown hair on the lip of my vagina, I did just shave last week, it has a little bit of a white head, and there is only one?

Sounds right: This is not uncommon. Try warm smokes in the bathtub to draw out the infection. If this does not clear it up you will need an antibiotic. In the future make sure you shave in one direction, use plenty of lubricant such as shaking cream and do not use an old razor blade. If that doesn't help then you can try waxing or laser hair removal if you want to continue this grooming style. ...Read more

Anxiety?: From what you describe, it doesn't sound like a herpes infection. If it were, by the way, popping it would just make it spread more. When in doubt, it would be better to just leave it alone or seek a professional evaluation and advice\treatment. ...Read more

New sex partner 2 weeks. Recent fever & chills. Next day abscess with white head on vaginal lip. 2 more showed up. Express Care said not typical herpe?

Herpes seems likely: Herpes rashes can take many forms -depending on the strain of virus and the host (the patient). It's possible you have some natural resistance to herpes, say if you already have HSV-1 the 'cold sore' virus. Herpes lesions (the rashes) usually are quite painful. The history of a new partner, and then these rashes makes me suspicious. Herpes is very common - most people don't even know they have it. ...Read more

I had a pimple on lower lip and it was bugging me so I popped it, over night lip became swelled and I'm not sure if it has turned into cold sore or not, lip appears swollen with sore filled with fluid and white head. Feels irritated?

I had a pimple on lower lip and it was bugging me so I popped it, over night lip became swelled and I'm not sure if it has turned into cold sore or not, lip appears swollen with sore filled with fluid and white head. Feels irritated?

Abscess?: Although it may just be swelling from the trauma of "popping" it (the lips are very sensitive), it may have developed into an abscess. It should certainly be evaluated by MD. It may need antibiotics or to be drained. Most urgent care clinics can take care of this, as well as primary care offices, though they may shy at draining since it's on your lip. ...Read more
