Cut on inside of lower lip

An_256736 posted:
I tore the inside of my lower lip and had to go to emergency to have it sown up. The stiches were supposed to dissolve naturally but some of them broke off (probably when I was eating). Now the lip healed but I have a little bump that rests on the teeth. It often feels irritated. What kind of specialist should I see to correct this? It appears as if the skin didn't heal normally and there is a bump where there shouldn't be.

Hello,

It may be a good idea to start with your general practitioner. He/She can take a look at your lip and refer you to a specialist if need be. Please let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes,
Atti
