Dear doc,
Thanks for your reply. I think I'm gonna benefit from it. I've got another question for you and I hope that you can help me.

I have this funny looking blister on my lip. But it's not a blister. It's on my upper lip in the middel over to the side. It started out as a blister-like thing, but there's no water in it. It's like a little button and see-through. I've noticed this morning that it's getting bigger, but very slowly. I've never seen something like this before and maybe it will be hard to see, because you aren't looking at it yourself. Maybe it happend to someone else and you can tell me.

I hope I described alright, cause I don't really know how to describe it. It's not sore or it doesn't bother me. It's not red around it or it doesn't look harmful, but if it's getting bigger it will be a problem.

Thank you

Ciska, it might be the beginning of a fever blister or a superficial infection of some sorts. If it keeps on getting bigger, the best would be to see your doctor.
