I have had a very small clear bubble inside my lower lip that will not go away. It doesn't hurt but it's bugging me like crazy. I've tried salt water rinses and special mouthwash. What could it be?

Good day,
This looks like either a mucocele or mucous retention cyst. Sometimes it can form if there was some trauma to the lip, and sometimes it forms spontaneously. Nothing to worry too much about.
If it doesn't bother you, no treatment is required.
If it does,or enlarges, you can see a dentist which will just cut that small area out, or use a laser to remove it.
Usually it doesn't come back.

Thank you. This helps a lot. :)
