Persistent white pimple with pus near the lip causing on and off tingling. What could it be?

I have a small white pimple looking thing on corner of my lower lip . It looks like there s puss in it but I cant pop it. It also tingles on and off. I had what I thought was a small skin tag or something there for months, it was not noticeable and it didn t bother me. I went to bed last night and woke up with it like this. What could it be?

Hello Ma'am. Your description of the problem points towards Herpes labialis. It is a common, recurrent skin eruption on lips associated with tingling sensation. It does not contain pus but small amount of fluid. It's better you see a skin specialist for further treatment.
