Did you catch it against something? How did it come about?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Im honestly not sure, as you can see, it is on the inside of my lips, I found it today, as 2 days ago i felt this pain but i couldnt quite pinpoint where it was coming from, now im thinking it may be from this
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 17 days ago.

I cant say I'm sure, as not the best pic and these things usually need a face to face assessment for better evaluation

However, you can try healing the area, with epsom salt and water baths for 20 mins  for next 5 days

Apply some healing cream like sudocrem afterwards, and if no better then you should see someone in person
