blister on lip, but not a cold sore?

I've had a blister on my lip for about 3 weeks. It doesn't hurt at all which is why I don't think it's a cold sore. It's annoying though; looks weird and I keep accidentally making it bleed. Any advice or recommendations what to put on it?

I had one recently but it didn't sting like a cold sore either. It was weird. It had a crust and was a definate lump. I gave it time to clear up otherwise I was going to my GP.
I think it was related to my sinusitis. I had a sore mouth and Sinusitis at the same time and I am stressed ATM.
It took quite a time to go but not as long as 3 weeks. I think you should go and see a GP just to check it out.

Thanks: yes, I'm beginning to think I should go to the doctor.

I didn't put anything in it but I did put my lipstick over it. Probably not a good thing. My lip looked really pouty, but unfortunately only on one side, lol

I think any lump that bleeds and takes a long time to heal should probably be investigated. Best of luck

If it's been three weeks then you will need to have it looked at.

It is just possible it could be a non-serious type of tumour.

Ok, thanks, will do!

Just in case anyone was holding their breath wondering what it turned out to be......! Or if anyone in future searches for something similar on here, it turned out to be a pyogenic granuloma! Don't Google images of it! Quite rare apparently and the GP got me an urgent specialist appointment and they removed it on Tues. A weird episode in my life, but nothing sinister, though having a local anaesthetic in your lip is not something I would want to repeat!

Gosh that is very rare. I just had to google the pics. It was nothing like mine otherwise I would have rushed off to the Docs.
Was there any bright side? Were your lips full and pouty for a few days? ( just kidding)
I am glad you're fine now. It is horrible having needles stuck into your lips ohhh painful.
