small painful cysts at corner of mouth/lips

I have these two little cysts almost joined to the corner of my lip that are pretty sore. They were always sort of hiding barely in the skin over there, but now that Im on accutane for almost a month, theyve decided to slowly peek their "white"-heads from beneath and become a bit more sore and a little more noticeable.

A few months back I extracted a couple of whiteheads in similar locations on the other side of my mouth.. It was sore, but I had to do it. - There was actually one small one actually coming out of the corner of my lip. I didnt think that could happen.

But anyhow.. should I extract these? Or will accutane have them magically dissapear? What should I do in your humble opinion?

Re: small painful cysts at corner of mouth/lips

this sounds like a cold sore... iread a remedy on the net that said dab some vanilla extract on the cold sores and that will dry them up...try it and let me know if it works...if it doesnt seem like a cold sore to you try some cortizone cream dab it on with a q-tip...this cream is like a miracle. by morning it wont be sore and it will either be going away or coming to a head. plus cortizone reduces marks from pimples ALOT! but they have ot be freshly pooped..good luck

Re: small painful cysts at corner of mouth/lips

I would wait and see if it's a cold sore - you don't want to go poking a prodding around with one of those, you can spread it so you'd get more!

If it is a cyst, then I'd go in there and get the stuff out, just be careful.

Just an F.Y.I. - I noticed that some chapsticks, lip balms and lip glosses make the skin around my mouth break out so I need to be careful to not get them on my skin and that they're not too "gooey"

Good Luck!
