Reddish purplish bump outside the lower lip, gets sore on messing, increasing in size. Worrisome?

I have had this small reddish purpleish bump on the outside of my lower lip for about a month now. It gets kind of sore when I mess with it otherwise it doesn t really hurt. Its been getting bigger though and I don t know what it is! Should I be worried? Ive also been really stressed out lately if that may have anything to do with this. Please help!

Thanks for the query.

You might have developed furuncles.

These are deep bacterial infections.

Please dont squeeze it as there is a chance of spread of infection.

Treatment is with antibiotics

the choice of antibiotics should be based on culture and sensitivity tests.

Please visit any lab and get this test done.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
