my son has a white piece of skin on inside of his bottom lip and the outer lip is seems to be red and puffy. my daughter admitted to us that she decided to apply some of her lip gloss on her brother thismorning, could this be some sort of allergic reaction or thrush, he doesnt seem to be acting any diferently or show to be bothering him at all, i really dont know i plan to take him to dr. tomarrow but would love to have some kind of answer today i hate to worry like this. please help!

  • Sounds to me like he bit his lip. I know if I bite the inside of my lips or cheeks, I get a white spot where it starts to heal. That could explain the redness as well. If your daughter put lip gloss on him, it's possible he was trying to get it off and maybe bit it or was sucking on his lip. You can always try giving him some benedryl and see if that clears it up in case it was an allergic reaction. I would probably just keep an eye on it and see if it starts to get better or worsens. Good luck!

I tend to be clumsy, and if I do something like bump something hard against my mouth, I end up cutting the inside of my mouth with my teeth. This makes the bit area white and the lip puffy. The part that got bit inside ends up with either a blister or a flap of skin.
