White bumps under skin in the place of cold sores. Advise?

Hello there. Thank you. I had a very bad coldsore in January. It has healed okay. I suffer from coldsores so I understand that the area of skin is red for approx 3 months and then over time fades to nothing. However this time the area if skin had faded but I have 2 white bumps, like tiny dots under the skin where I had the coldsore. It is a over my top lip. I cannot get rid of these white bumps as the white is not liquid etc. please can you advise as I am conscious of these.

Hi, it appears that you have allergy, causing red patches, this time you had secondary bacterial infection,causing white bumps.
I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.
I to my patient with such infection prescribe levocitrzine, ofloxacin, and pain killer when ever there is pain. Thank you.
