Hello,
From the symptoms it does not sound like a herpes sore.It can be an oral melanocytic macule or a lentigo. It is a small, sharply circumscribed, pigmented macule surrounded by normal-appearing skin.
Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen and laser are the main treatment modalities. I would recommend a dermatologist’s consultation for this.

I hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.

Hello,
Oral melanotic macule is a non-cancerous (benign), dark spot found on the lips or inside the mouth. An oral melanotic macule found on the lip is sometimes called a labial melanotic macule.A biopsy has to be done and laser treatment is the main treatment option.A lentigo is generally considered a brown pigmented spot on the skin.

I am forwarding you a link thru which you can identify the conditions: http://www.visualdxhealth.com/adult/oralMelanoticMacule-treatments.htm

For the cost of laser treatment pls consult a cosmetologist or dermatologist.

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

hello, i visited my aunt's house and she could barely see the dot on my lip and i may be hallusinating, and a shallow dot is on my bottom lip but it can sometimes be seen from an angle. Also my rectum area has an on and off itch but i don't scratch it, could that be caused of paranoia, anxiety or a sign of gential herpes?

thank you so much for your information dr kaur.  I finally know what I might have on my lip. I have one question:  I noticed that I only got it after a herpes outbreak.  The herpes on my lip was from my girlfriend.  She seems like she has melanocytic macule or a lentigo.  Are these conditions contagious or are they the after effect of herpes outbreaks?
