Wart on the lower lip, pus formation. Need medication

Out of nowhere i would get a pimplely small wart sort of looking thing in my lower lip and i accidentally bit it a good couple times and since it's grown larger. Two days ago i accidentally bit it again and i started to squeeze it and a yellow slimy substance came out, not like puss it looked more transparent and slimy. It's a little bit smaller no but it's still there. What is this on my lip and are there any medication i can take to take this off?? Please and thanks doctor.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Welcome to healthcare magic.
You seem to be having a condition called mucocele. It occurs due to trauma or obstruction of minor salivary gland duct causing accumulation of mucus. It is better to show a dermatologist. Surgical treatments like excision, marsupialisation, Cryosurgery and electrocautery works well.
Hope this helped.
take care.
