Red face Pimples on lips

This is soo annoying. Since the past week I've been getting pimples on my lips. They grow on the area between the skin and lip. They are barely noticeable but they hurt a lot. They turn white with pus after 2 days and then they go away. I dont think these are cold sores since they look just like pimples and they're very small.

I'm thinking it's something I've been eating lately. Recently, I've been putting a lot of mustard in my salads. Also I've been eating those Guilt Free ice cream sandwiches, but not that many. I also started drinking those Jack Daniel's Country Cocktails, so maybe its the alcohol but I dont know. In addition I stopped taking my multi-vitamins.

Anyone else has experienced this before? How did you cure it?

I had one before, but it was very small and did not turn red or inflamed like a regular pimple..I just let it go away on it's own-it was gone in a couple days. It's probably totally normal and nothing to worry about. I don't think your foods would cause them as long as you were washing your face every morning and night.

Ive got 2 on my lips at the moment. I guess they developed as i have not been washing my lipstick/lipliner off properly. They are quite sore, but the area heals quite quickly.

I never use lip balm or anything like that, so I dont think I have the same problem as you. I'm beginning to think it might be the sunlight, since I've done a little bit of walking on campus lately.

I started using Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar a couple of weeks ago. Maybe my lips are reacting bad to it. I used Cetaphil Cleansing Bar before and didnt have any problems. Any ideas anyone?

Your toothpaste may be causing this. Try switching brands and be sure to rinse it all off from your lips and surrounding areas.

I'm using the same one I've always used.

hey man, ya i get them once in a while, there tiny, so i just try not pick them because it scars really easy there and they only last for 2 days at the most and you cant even notice them, so dont worry about it, you can get them anywhere

pimples/spots around the lip area are different to cold sores in a few ways,

Cold sores feel sore, spots will probably not hurt.

Cold sores are caused by a virus that penetrates the skin, spots are a bacterial infection growing in trapped sebum.

Cold sores last longer and are infectious, spots will go quicker and are not infectious.

Cold sores will not develop a white head.

Re: Pimples on lips

I think I have this pimple it's where the lip meets the skin. At first I thought that it was a cold sore but now I think it's a pimple. To get rid of it should I just use regular fash wash? I've never had an outbreak to my fashwash before. But it's not a small unoticable pimple it's actually pretty big =(

Re: Pimples on lips

I have found an extremely sparse amount of information about lip pipmles on the net, it's good to see I am not the only one. I get lip zits more often than I like. I hate them the most because I think everyone is staring at it and think the worse (that its herpes, when it isn't). I find that I will get a red spot one day, the next day or two it will come to a head. As soon as it comes to a head I kinda stretch the skin around my mouth so the zit(s) ooze out on there own. I then hop in the shower(very warm to hot) in the hopes that the heat will help bring the crap out of the zit. I usually never acuatlly squeeze the zit. If I am lucky, the zit doesn't fill up and in a few days the redness is mostly gone. I also have had pretty bad acne most of my life. I have found no way to eliminate the outbreak of lip pimples or decrease the frequency. I am allergic to many things and wouldn't be surprised if my diet contributes the the problem. I have a feeling that tomato sauce, soy, or possible peanuts may somtimes help to cause the issue. I also find that I get zip zits mostly in the spring and early to mid summer.

What I think is hilarious, is that ***0 mentioned somethiing about "the dreaded lip pimple" on friday morning as I woke up, later that night the redness began. Drained the zit saturday night, and right now its red but not to bad. By the weekend there should be little to no redness.

Stay Strong and Keep Positive, Sometimes the Mirror is Your Worst Enemy!!!

hohum is out.

Re: Pimples on lips

Have you kissed anyone that uses lipbalm or lipstick? I know it sounds wierd but ingredients can transfer especially if they are in a waxy base.
