Question
bump on lip
bump on lip  
Good Morning Mr. Fisher. I' m writing here because on my boyfriend's lip, 3 days ago, appeared a small whitish bump, which is not in relief and it doesn't hurt. We are afraid that it could be something serious like an oral wart or something like that.  I add a photo for more explanations. Thank you for your help.

Answer
The white lesion is not herpes as herpes presents with small blisters. Othe causes include biting the lip, trauma to the lip, and allergies. If the lesion continues to grow then it could be a wart. If the lesion continues to grow see your local dermatologist.
