I have these sores, they look like pimples, but don't behave like them. I've had pimples around my mouth when I was younger going through puberty, however, I usually would pop them and they'd go away within a day or two.
These are red and slightly painful for a couple days, then eventually come to a tiny white head that I have to really squeeze to pop, it's a tiny bit of white, then clear fluid that comes out.
after this it usually comes back again with another white head within a day and again I pop it.
They then stay red for a few more days then eventually start to diminish, but leaving a mark almost like a scar or discolored marking??
1) what does this sound like to you? cold sore? herpes?
2) could sun exposure trigger this?
3) another way to treat this?
