Small lump on lower lip. Jaw started becoming sore. What could this be?

Yesterday about two hours after I woke up, I noticed a small lump on my lower lip. Throughout the day, it was getting more painful and larger. By the evening, my jaw started becoming sore. Today, my lip and lower jaw are extremely sore. What could this be? There was no trauma except that my lips have been a little dry. But I feel like I've been kicked in the face.

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you developed lacrimal gland infection of lower lip.

Initially due to blockage of salivary duct there might be swelling.

Then it would became infected.

You should not wait as you developed large painful sored swelling of lower jaw. You should immediately consult dermatologist for perfect diagnosis and treatment.

He may give heavy antibiotics with anti inflammatory drugs.

If needed, he may advise few blood tests and radiologic examination, to rule out other diseases.

I hope you got my answer, please follow it.
