Lip Pimples?

I am in the mid-stages of puberty and have been getting little bumps around my lips for the past... year. Last month I decided to try and pop them. Yellow-ish stuff came out. They have been coming back and i keep popping them, the stuff is now white though. What could it possibly be?

Hi there!

These are likely to be comedones/ white heads. Comedones would need to be removed/ cleaned, followed by medication use. Scrubbing steaming etc may also be useful. If it does not seem to help over 6-8 weeks with use of medications such as benzoyl peroxide/ clindamycin, I would suggest consulting a dermatologist for appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
