Hello, I noticed this strange bump on my lip one evening. At first it upset me because I thought it was a cold sore, but then, only a few hours later, the bump went away, leaving only a bit of dry skin. Now, two days later, the dry skin is still there. It looks slightly whiter than the rest of my lip and could have been this way that evening. I don't remember as I only had a short time to look at it. I don't remember the bump being there earlier that day. I noticed it while I was eating dinner.
What could this have been?
This bump on the lips could have been a canker sore. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.
If the symptoms persist then get it checked from a dermatologist.
