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.

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.
