How is it going? All right, let's get to me now...
I'm 16 years old and my life really sucks. It all started about 8 years ago when I was 8 years old. I was swinging at home when I suddenly fell on my stomach and my face banged on the floor. Luckily I didn't get hurt anywhere on my face but ended up hurting my lip. My lip bled so much. It was night so my parents couldn't take me for stitches. I don't know why. Well the next day when I woke up I saw a huge pimple on my lip. Sadly I have it till now.
My mates feel sorry for me. Some of them laugh at me and they keep asking me if that's gonna be there forever. I'm often being called ugly. I never had a boyfriend. I don't blame them coz who would like to go out with an ugly girl like me? I hate going in public coz everyone stares at me...
Please help me, Bubby. I really need your help.

Dear 16 & Sad,
I was really sad when I read your question but whatever happened can be corrected. First your Mother should take you to the Doctor and find out what is on your lip. Can it be removed?? Go to a dermatologist and get his/her opinion. It may be that you had this "thing" since you were born but it did not appear until you reached a certain age.
I am not a doctor so I can't tell you what it is but whatever it is your doctor will know the remedy and I recommend to get to that doctor as soon as possible. I would be interested to know the solution.
Please let me know and good luck.
