What would cause the lower right side of my lip to be swollen and painful?


Posted by bubbleelise

The lower right side of my lip on my mouth is swollen and painful. There are also tiny bumps that have a white circle around a dark spot.

It is on the outside. I out canker sore medicine on it and the swelling got worse.

In the absence of a history of trauma, sounds like a canker sore or oral herpes-you didn't report whether it was on the inside of the lip or on the outside.  For the definitive diagnosis and treatment, do yourself the favor of consulting a dentist who can put your fears to rest and make you more comfortable.  http://soundentistry.com/blogodontics/2008/9/20/oral-cancer-screening.html
