i am a 17 year old male. on novermber 16th, a couple days after having my wisdom teeth out. i was drinking with friends i started to feel the "tingle" on my lower lip. i took valtrex right away and it stayed at only three small bumps on the lower right of my lip.... THIS WAS LAST YEAR!!! i still have them on my lip! i have tried acne creams to try dry the bumps up and have them gone but it will not work. im hoping these may have somethign to do with my lip problem as well. because for some reason, when i eat, or am very warm my lower lip goes red... im EXTREMELY self concious about this. i am the usual outgoing and fun guy. but that has definately changed. i missed many school days last year because of this.!! and family gatherings. i really need help!!
herpes won't cause bumps for an entire year. they would've run their course and healed and been gone within 2-3 week maximum.
you need to see a dermatologist for a further work up to find out what is really going on. this can be many things from an allergic reaction, dermatological condition as well as fungal or bacterial skin infections going on.
