Cold sore?

Use Zovirax to head it off. You can also buy patches you stick on overnight which are good. This action works to prevent them coming out as a full-blown coldsore.

Thanks, purple and Chocolate.

Zombie sits on her hands so that she stops poking the lump...

Could still be a cold sore. Try not to touch it or play with it and it might just go away.

Could still be a cold sore I think - i sometimes get these, they don't ever get as far as a blister, just go away again especially if you don't fiddle with them.

Zombie is nearly 61 yo. She has never had a cold sore so she only knows what friends have told her or what Dr. Google can tell her.

Last night she had a funny feeling on her upper lip. When she touched it she felt a little lump.

Tonight, the lump is still there. It's not really a blister which is what Dr. Google tells her a cold sore would be. But it still tingles a bit.

Any ideas?
