Bump on lip, white, bleeding. Taken salt water. What should I do next?

I have a 4 year old son who has a bump on the inside of his lip for almost a month now. I m nervous on what it is, it was small and white at first. I then poked it with a needle the first week but it just bled and then healed. I had him also swish with salt water daily, but it s not going away. Today it s red at the base but looks slightly bigger. Not sure what to do.
