I have a bump slightly to the right of my lip. It just feels swelled, but it doesn't hurt at all unless I push on it some. Today I was looking in the mirror and stretched my lip so it looked tighter and I noticed that to the right of that bump, there are smooth white patchs. They're not big patches, they kind of just look like little circles dotting my lip.

None of it burns or itches or anything. I noticed the bump quite some time ago, but I figured I just bumped my lip or something and didn't worry about it. But now that I see the white.. things, I'm totally scared.

Please someone help. I'm so scared and I don't even have a clue what it would be. I don't know anything about medical stuff or anything. Could someone explain what this could be? I can attempt to take pictures tommrow, if I get batteries for my camera.

Please help. I'm desperate.

Love,
Rachul.

  • EDIT : The white dot things are in sort of a thin line running across my lip, not only to the right. When I looked at it the first time, I had not seen the other side. Please, someone help.

  • rachul, you seem to have the similar symptoms as i do. no pain, white dots about 1mm or smaller...spreading. mine are on the top middle lip which have recently become too visual and smaller ones linning the sides of my lips. i know they are not herpes or some sort of warts(doctor told me) but the doc also couldnt tell me specifically what it is. im going to a dermatologist here in a couple days. after freaking the ^#%$*^%# OUT and researching the ***l out of this the best of my limited medical knowlege can muster is that it is most likely Forcydes condition which is some sort of oil gland or some crap that form in most people and most times cant even be seen at puberty but also can look like a f-ing std after a while or cheilitus... since my lil white bumps showed up around my early to mid teens...and have never really bothered me until lately where they grew in numbers and size, figure that might be it. but just chill since if it is that, it can be caused by stress. just joined the army a year ago so it explains the spreading. go check with a dermatology-dude. they will prolly just say its nothing and remove it for ya :) at least i hope :#

  • EDIT : The white dot things are in sort of a thin line running across my lip, not only to the right. When I looked at it the first time, I had not seen the other side. Please, someone help.I too, am having the same exact problem!! This bump just magically appeared and it seems to be getting bigger. It makes my upper lip look swollen. When I lift my lip up, where the bump is located, I see small white bumps, sort of in a line. Almost like I bit my lip or something. I have no idea what is going on!! I'm freaking out over here!! What could it be???? It's very annoying! Does anyone have any idea what this is or what may have caused it??

  • I'm so scared! I have the exact same thing on my upper lip and i don't know what to do. At first my dad thought it was a type of herpes like a cold sore since he always get them. I treated it with cold sore cream but it didn't help, actually it just made it harder and weirder. I've been searching the internet like crazy and I really want to go to the doctor but haven't had time yet. Somebody, please help! I don't want a bump like this on my lip forever, it's gross and disgusting.

  • I went to the dentist yesterday for fillings and impressions, I wake up this morning and I have a painful white bump in the corner of my top lip. Ive never had cold sores or fever blisters. Dont think thats what it is, but not sure of what it is. It also has a metal taste to it when I put my tongue to it. And Its hard. Any idea of what it could be?

  • Hello all, I have a similar problem and I consulted a dermatologist. He said that it is because of a gland which is growing more than what is expected, and this is quiet normal with many people. He suggested to go with a laser treatment which will give a temporary relief for few days or months to get the gland regrow. Hope this information helps.
