hi Doc

about 2 days ago i noticed a few pimples on my top lip and i thought it might be a fever blister/cold sore because i had flu last week but it's not blisters it looks like the pimples you get from blocked pores or something, it's really worrying me because i dont now if it is contagious or not. Can you tell me what i should get for it and what it is?

Thank you

Dear shaz,
It could be infected skin glands from all the nose blowing! Try bactroban ointment on it - should help.
