How do you treat a pimple on the lip line?


Quick Answer

  1. Make sure not to puncture the pimple

    Take every care not to squeeze or pop the pimple. Doing so causes bacteria from the pimple to spread and may even leave a scar on your lip line.

  2. Wash your lips regularly

    Wet a clean washcloth in warm water. Use that along with a medicated mouthwash to wash your lips. Avoid using soap or facial cleansers with strong chemicals. Remember to brush your lips as well every time you brush your teeth.

  3. Use a cold compress

    Press a cold compress to the pimple daily. This serves to reduce swelling in the affected area and reduces the visibility of the pimple.

  4. Adapt better lip hygiene

    Wipe your lips thoroughly after drinking or eating. Food residue is one of the main causes of pimples, and wiping prevents any residue from remaining on the lips unnoticed.

  5. Hydrate

    Drink a lot of water daily.

  6. Prevent chemicals from touching your lips

    Avoid chemical-rich makeup. Stop using lip balm for a few days, especially if it contains allergens.
