Mildly Sore Lip which is starting to hurt

Patient

Q: Hi There.

Yesterday morning, I woke up with a small pimple on the skin above my upper lip. It was barely hurting and I didn't think much of it.

By now the lip area below the pimple has swollen slightly. I am feeling a just a little bit of constant pain; not enough for an emergency visit. The swollen area is about 1/4 of an inch wide. Swelling is very minor for now.

When I press on the pimple, it hurts a bit.

My PCP is closed. Any suggestions?

Symptoms:  Swollen Lip. A small area on upper lip only.
