A single bump, gone in a day on my lip

Is it herpes? I first noticed it yesterday - it looked like a pimple, and it was kinda painful, and then last night it started getting bigger and filled with yellowish puss. But today it "popped" and now it's only just a slightly red spot on my lip.

I thought herpes outbreaks on the mouth usually consisted of several blisters that took many days to heal? This one was gone in a single day. Is it possible that it's still herpes?

Its possible that it was herpes. Herpes outbreaks do not always consist of several blisters...in fact, a single blister is more common then multiple ones. Go to the doctor and ask for a blood test for herpes to find out for sure.

Yes as the above poster says a single blister is more common. Herpes outbreaks do usually last longer than a day but can sometimes "abort" i.e. not form properly and last a shorter time.

Any bump on the lips is suspicious for herpes, although it can sometimes be an ordinary pimple if it is on the skin right next to the lip.
