Venous lake on my lip

I have this dark blue/purple lesion on my lip that keeps getting bigger. I went to see the dermatologist and she said that it's a venous lake. She said it was nothing I had to worry about. Does anyone else have one or know of someone who does? If so, what was your/their treatment?

Thank your for the suggestion of Castor Oil, I have used it for three days and my lip is almost
back to normal. I saw a difference in one day. Very inexpensive, no pain, surgery or wasted money. I would highly recommend this option before anything else.

Really glad to hear that. Keep the treatment and you will have better and better results with your VL, even disappear. I posted the castor oil remedy over 1 year and nobody seemed to notice my post, neither to give it a chance. So, thank you that you posted here your results, maybe will encourage others too to try it. For me it passed almost 1 year already since I applied castor oil with 100% success and it never came back! Since then my lip looks absolutely normal, you cannot tell that I ever had a venous lake on it! And I spent only 2$ on the bottle of castor oil.

I have a round purplish spot on my lower lip, it doesn't seem to hurt. I think I had a similar one in the past and it went away. I have btw made an appt with dermatologist in 2 weeks to have them look at it but it sounds like its the venous lake. However my nerves are shot, my husband is ill and I am fearful of this being something worse, how do they know? Please give me some encouragement. Am going to try the castor oil. Its possible that I have bitten my lip due to nervous stress btw. brit

Struth that's expensive!

Had mine done by laser, it's only just noticeable, much better than before! and it cost less than $200 but I'm Australia...

I laser these all the time with great results. Usually only takes one treatment. No needles or scars.
