Bump on outer edge of upper lip, whitish, under the skin, appeared suddenly. Causes and treatment?

There s a bump on the outer edge of my upper lip . It literally appeared within minutes... it s kind of whitish, but to be honest, it looks exactly like a mosquito bite. The only difference is that it s kind of moving down my lip... in a way... and it s bumped on the inside. (Not the inside of my mouth, the inside of my lip)

It seems like an allergic reaction to external objects or pollens or an unnoticed insect bite.

It is better to take anti-histamine like Tablet. Avil right away, to prevent its progression. Also, apply ice packs locally.

If it is not subsiding in a day, please consult your primary care physician.
