Small bump in the corner of my nouth

So I have never had bad acne or a cold sore ever just to start out saying. In the corner of my mouth i have felt a little bump forming under the skin for months now and i thought it was just from dry skin. I havent really thought anything about it because it was not noticable at all so it didnt really bug me but just recently it actually got bigger and is now noticable. It looks like a pimple but isnt really red or have a white head and like i said it has been kind of there forming for months. I dont know if its just from my mouth being dry but i really dont know what to do to get rid of it. the last thing i want is to irritate it or make it look any worse. It doesnt hurt much. A little pain when i press on it but other than that nothing. i just want it to go away to be honest. Im not sure what i should do to go about that and i for sure dont want it to get any bigger. Any information on this would help enormously. Thank you!

From the symptoms that you have described,it sounds like folliculitis or boil. Pls keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.Pls consult a dermatologist in that case.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
