Whitehead on bottom lip lining.

How long does it take a whitehead on the bottom lip lining to form & disappear?

Hello,
Without examination,it is difficult to confirm a diagnosis, but from your description it looks like a mucocele or a small hematoma under the skin.  Treatment includes corticosteroid injections and surgical removal by scalpel or laser which are done by a dermatologist. It then has to be differentiated from other mucocutaneous lesions also.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
