Lip Bumps
About 2 weeks ago I noticed some tiny bumps on my upper lip. they were kind of clustered and I really had to stretch my lip to see them, but I could feel them.I did some reasearch and thought I had Fordyce spots although they were still much more subtle than any pictures I saw of Fordyce spots.  Since then, the clusters have dissapeared and now I have them almost all over my upper lip and a little on my lower lip. They are really really subtle, but I can feel them and feel very self concious of wearing listick since this accentuates them more. I am begining to think that they are not fordyce spots because they rally blend with my lip now, almost like a rash. Is this fungus or a rash instead?

Thanks

No, I think they are Fordyce spots (small oil glands that sometimes become more prominent and visible.)  Best to not feel self-conscious.  After all, if they're that subtle, nobody else is likely to notice them.  Just hide them and ignore them.  As you've already seen, they can wax and wane on their own.

Take care.

I have the exact same thing on my lips!  I thought mine was a condition called Cheilitis or inflamation of the lips.  I have eczema or atopic dermatitis and I get this sometimes on my lips (upper main) and it makes my lipstick look "gritty".  I'm thinking of having permanent cosmetics (lipcolor) but I'm scared to because of this.
