Lip itching, numb zit, advice

Just a couple of minutes ago, I was sitting, watching tv when my lip started itching. Then it felt as if a pimple was coming in. I scratched it and I felt a bump. I realized it was a zit. But then it started to bet bigger and numb. It s around the size of a dime in length. Its been around 20 minutes and it hasn t gone away. What could it be? Should I seek medical help?

welcome to healthcare magic.

it will be difficult to comment on what it is without seeing it. it could be an insect bite. i will recommend that you apply cortisone cream mixed with fucidin cream on it, it will give you relief. if the itching is intense, you can also take tab. claritin 10 mg once a day . that will help.
