Sore lump under skin on chin.

Hi, I have a very painful (bruise pain) spot like lump in the skin just under my lip.(chin)

When touched lightly or jaw is moved, pain occurs.
It feels like a spot but underneath my skin.
Please advise.

Re: Sore lump under skin on chin.

Sounds like a cyst, some people call it a 'blind pimple'. It really is just a big pimple under the skin that never comes to a white/black head.

Warm compresses, topical or Rx antibiotic and benzoil peroxide should get rid of it in a few days. If it doesn't go away a dermatologist can take care of it for you.

DON'T try to pop it! It'll rupture under the skin and cause a huge infection.

(if the cyst is[B] in[/B] your lip, even partially, you need to see a doctor right away)
