Burning, itching after absentmindedly biting lower lip. Bump formed with clear fluid. What is it?
Hi. Earlier today I was absentmindedly biting on the outside of my lower lip when I felt it start to itch/ burn a little. The sensation was like when you eat something you re allergic to and you realize it when your lips are itching and burning. Moments later I noticed a small bump on the center of my lip where I was biting. It s been at least 8 hours and it hasn t gone down. It doesn t itch anymore or hurt at all. It s colorless (the color of my lip) and looks like it might be filled with clear fluid because it s shiny. There is no head on it. I don t have Herpes Simplex 1 but what could it be?
Hello, Your lips are ulcerated due to lip biting. Apply dologel on the affected area. Maintain oral care. Swish with warm saline frequently. Avoid intake of hot/spicy foods. Please do visit a dentist if symptoms persists. Take care.
