Lumps on the lips are the response of your body to inflammation or irritation in the area. So, sometimes it can be accompanied by complaints of pain, tenderness, small lumps, redness, or blisters; but in the initial stages, sometimes no complaints are found that disturb the patient. Inflammation itself can be caused by food scraps, oils, seasonings that stick long or repeatedly, or it can also be caused by injury or infection.
Some of the conditions below can give the same picture that causes a lump in the corner of the lips, such as:
2. contact dermatitis, or inflammation of the skin due to contact with certain ingredients
3. mucocele or small cyst on the lip area
4. food or drug allergies
5. trauma to the lips
6. infection of the corners of the lips
In connection with your question, there may be a lump on the edge of your lips that can be caused by contact dermatitis that causes inflammation of the skin of the lip area or corner of the lips. This condition can be triggered by repeated exposure to leftovers, seasonings, or oils that stick to the corners of your mouth. Thus, cleaning food scraps and other irritants on the lips and corners of the lips, is expected to help reduce this complaint. If you do not currently have complaints of pain or itching, then as early as possible you can do a direct examination to your family doctor or your dermatologist, thus, this initial complaint does not further aggravate your complaint. And coronation and treatment can be done immediately to help your recovery.
