Hi, never had these before. I have a few white pimples on bottom lip and one on inside of top lip which have been here for a little more than a week.

There is no pain and not hard. Mostly annoying because I keep wanting to mess with the pimples.

Are these cancker sores or something else?

I have attached two pics showing the two pimples on right bottom lip close to the center.

What is the best treatment?

Thanks!

Good day

Difficult to see clearly on the photos, but it seems like it might be mucus retention cysts or just common mucoceles. These can pop and disappear on their own, but then re-appear at a later stage. If they don't go away, become enlarged, painful or ulcerated, you can have them excised and sent for histological assessment in order to determine if it is something you should be worried about.
