Was shaving and irritation in lips. What was the fluid that oozed?
Hi, I was shaving a couple of days ago and yesterday I noticed an irritation under my bottom lip on the left side. I thought it was a pimple and tried to squeeze it, and a bit of clear fluid came out. Today, I woke up with a swollen lip. I applied ice and tried to squeeze it again and eventually applied a first aid ointment to where I squeezed. The lip is not in pain but where I squeezed is. What can I do to get the swelling down?
HI, It seems you have furuncle or bacterial infection of skin. For such patients visiting my OPD I prescribe oral and topical antibiotics. You need to visit your physician or dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Regards DrSudarshan MD
