Question:

I have noticed small white dots on my lips they do not surface only appear when lips are spread. My skin on my lips also seems to be peeling along the line of where my lips close. I have no signs of genital warts. The dots on my lips are not clustered nor grouped. Is it possible for it to be another form of warts that are passed from hand warts?




 



I have the same thing! Its only on my upper lip, and these spots can only be seen when I stretch the skin, and they are clustered. They do not hurt, but tingle a little someitmes. My lip is alsoa little more dry than usual. Could this be HPV? I don''t know that I have been with anybody that has that. But I also have a similar condition on my vagina. (sensitive part). The bumps there are also small and clustered, but not bothersome. Does anybody know what this is?

I have the same problem. I got it from my boyfriend. I didnít think it was contagious. He has very visible white bumps on his upper lips mines started to appear lately when I stretch upper my lips. I am worried about the genital area mostly . Is there anyone knows what this is? It is not genital wart the doctor and the lab tests said but why is it contagious then?

White Spots on Lips
These white spots are basically called Fordyce''''s spots, named after the American dermatologist, John Addison Fordyce. It is also called the Fordyce''s Disease.They are typically painless, raised, white or pale spots or probably bumps maximum around 3 mm in diameter. Along with lips, these appear where there are sebaceous glands, in tandem with hair follicles. It is found very commonly in men and women across all age groups.

White spots on lips, a kind of ectopic sebaceous gland, are mostly found on the vermilion border of the lips. Not associated with any illness or disease, these are merely of a cosmetic concern. These are non-infectious and are a natural occurrence on the body. White spots on the lips are quite the opposite of dark spots on the lips and whatever is applicable for dark spots, might not be for white spots.

Causes of White Spots on Lips
The reasons for the occurrence of fordyce spots is medically termed as ''idiopathic''. This means that the reasons are pretty obscure and ambiguous. In addition to this, neither this condition is contagious nor is it caused by any virus, contrary to a belief held by many, specifically in case of fordyce spots on the genitals. As mentioned earlier, white spots on lips are widely found in men and women across all age groups. These white spots on lips are seen or rather appear in a symmetrical group of upto 100 or as a single lesion. However, even if there is no known cause, it could happen that white spots on the lips, if they are very prominent and are giving you discomfort or the likes, there could be an underlying medical condition. So its better to get them checked, if you feel that there is something wrong.

I wouldn''''t worry about the small white dots being sexually transmitted, because I have them too and I haven''t had sex before. I read somewhere that the white dots are pretty normal, and some guys have them below their shaft. I''m not sure about the peeling though.

Its is more than likely that is a symptom of HPV. When I contracted it from my ex boyfriend thats when i noticed the spots on my upper lip. So if you have noticed it, then my guess is that you have contracted the STD and should get to a doctor to get tested. There is no cure for HPV, prevention is the only cure. Peace out.

everyone calm the Genital Warts down. small white dot clusters on lips and genitals are from excess oil. It is not spreadable nor is treatment required. It is way benign. Stop blaming your b/gf''''s before you breakup over a mistake.

It''''s not fordyce spots. I have the same symptoms. Peeling lips, tingling, sometimes slight pressure buildup where it tingles(specially if I''m really tired, or eat chocolate, chia seeds...now I can''t even enjoy some foods without my lips twitching/numb and a corner of my mouth would just ever so slightly open up like a paper cut and sting for a few days before healing(happened a few times)you couldn''t tell unless you looked up close...lots of white spots, not just the edge of the lips in the middle as well. I got it from an ex. Before my lips were pink smooth and clear as can be. Now they are blotchy discolored reddened edges. Again it isn''t normal fordyce. Something is causing the fordyce glans to multiply/spread.

I don''t think doctors care too much to look into something like this. It sucks. I went to a few doctors...what a joke. They brushed it off like I was crazy. I''m thinking this is some different/overlooked form of covert ops form of herpes lol. Cause they don''t break out open like I''ve seen my friend with a coldsore/HSV1. I keep finding other post of people with the same thing. We know what our lips are supposed to look and feel like, This is f''ed up.

ladies and gentlemen,

I am a student pharmacist with the same problem. I believe my outbreaks are related to stress, because I experience a lot of it during school. However, it could not be the only factor because many students don''''t have these spots, and many people who do, do not experience a lot of stress.

Anyway, after doing some research through journal articles I had come across a treatment that works. Contact your dermatologist and ask for treatment with bichloracetic acid.

The article is: Treatment of Fordyce Spots with Bichloracetic Acid

refer your dermatologist to this article, even if he does not ask. This may only seem like a cosmetic problem to many healthcare professionals, however it is a great inconvenience to us.

If you have "silver amalgam" (metal) fillings, or work in the cement industry, do some research on mercury poisoning. "Sliver" fillings contain about 50% mercury.

Everyone will have this issue one day is seems. Spreading way to fast. Before we know too many will have dry lips white spots. I am seeing it all over the internet and no one knows. We are victims and survivors of this.I recently in the last year have gotten dry lips & tiny white spots and also know that I have HPV high strain (not the wart strain). I had cervical cancer at the age of 26 and that was 3 years ago. It is spreading fast and no one knows for sure but I have a sick feeling it is all HPV related even if the Dr. isn''''t sure. After all, why do they call it "practicing medicine." Carriers need to not be so unsure. We need to educate all those around us. It is an STD that is still being very much studied!

Hello, my name is Valery. I had the same problem time ago and didnt take examination. All I can say that there will be bigger spots and even more - I currently have spots on ass, penis, ears, one big white spot on the tip of the nose. Spots are also spreading to my buttocks :( I really dont know what''''s the problem. Can I have sex with this condition ?
