Well sweetie I suppose we should take you to the doctor to be sure you are okay.
MOM!!! My lip is really red and it hurts so bad.
Yes, my daughter is seeing him for a red spot on her lip.
Welcome to the dermatology department. Are you here to see Dr.Flubanub
Yeah. It started to feel sore yesterday, but today it got really red and sore.
Hello, It sounds as if you are having pain and redness on your lip.
I am taking this flake of skin from the sore and will send it to the lab. That will determine for certain what it is.
Well, it appears as if you may have a cold sore. This is another name for the herpes simplex 1 virus.
Oh no! What do I do? Am I going to have this forever?!
Do not be worried this is a very common skin disorder. I will be prescribing an antiviral drug that you will take in order to clear the sore up. This doesn't however prevent this from flaring up again. You will always have the virus in your system. I also suggest that you do not kiss or share drinks with people if you have the sore or feel one coming, as this is very contagious.
