I am in some desperate need for help. This problem has been leaving me sleepless for quite some time now. I may go mad if I don't find out what it is. So please, help me.
About 4 weeks ago, i woke up one morning with a stinging sensation in my upper lip (towards the right side, just above my right canine). Checking in the mirror revealed a red blister, about 3-4 mm in diameter and very spherical. I popped it with a needle. In a day, it turned into an Ulcer, which healed in 4-5 days.
Now here's where the problem started. After healing, the skin didn't return to normal. Instead, it remained reddish and slightly raised. (not a sudden lump, but a gradual, smooth bump).
Close inspection revealed that the skin texture is normal and seems like there are an increased number of capillaries on the bump. If I press it down, it looks normal, just like any other part of the mouth. When i release the hand, the reddishness returns.
twice since then, i popped the bump with a needle. Both times, a little blood and i guess some clear fluid came out, and the bump appeared to look normal. But, in 3-4 days, it starts getting reddish again. It doesn't return to the previous (very red, bulging, painful blister) state, but it remains reddish (sorta like 30% redder than the surrounding areas). It has been remaining this way for a few days now. It has also remained painless since the initial blister and the ulcer after i popped it.
I haven't slept properly in days. Every few minutes, i find myself looking at it in the mirror. The more i look at it, the more crazy i get.
Please, if somebody here can help me, do so. I will in your debt forever.
