Sebaceous Oil Glands

From reading this website, I believe that I have sebaceous oil glands because of the appearance of small clusters of white bumps on my lip.  Is the any way to reduce the appearance of these small bumps?  And, is there any know reason for having sebaceous oil glands?  Thanks for the help... this website is great!!

When oil glands are on the lip, you can see them against the pink packground.  Except for camouflage (lipstic), there's nothing to do about them.  They're just a variant of normal.

Thanks for your kind words.
