What is this small white bump on my 11 year old upper lip?
My boy has a small white bump on his upper lip. It appears it can be squeezed as a pimple. I don't want to squeeze and force this out if it is NOT a pimple. It is not open. It is hard under the skin. It is white.
Reading the other "Small White Bump on lip" it resembles those in question?
Is it a wart?
I read, during pregnancy, HPV warts are transferable to the infant if birth is through the birth canal. Could this be a HPV wart? At his age 11, which was never noticed. As I have always been concerned about.
I would like to have it cut out, vs the freeze though DO NOT want a scar on this young guy.
He has had some major sun blistors from previous summers as he is out in the sun - athletics / beach. Could this be a long lasting blister that never surfaced to exit..... a hard oil gland - pimple that it too hasn't surfaced to exit.
A dermo visit is on the list for removal of a planter wart on the bottom/side of his foot. We will have this looked at while on this visit...
