Fungus or Warts
I performed oral sex on my boyfriend.  A couple of days later a noticed small white discolored bumps in the corner of my upper lips.  On one side they are small clustered bumps with tiny white filling.  On the other side they aren't white colored but appear as discolored specks appearing as they are traveling up my lip.  When I put my lipstick on them the white part in the bump will go away and it will appear as if nothing is there.  If I wet my lips in that area, they are visable and white. When I dry the area the bumps look like a small rash?  Can warts be visible one moment and not visable the next?  Is this how warts appear?  How would I know the difference if it were a fungus?
Thanks

If they're visible on and off, then it's probalby physiologic--i.e., normal.  I suspect these are sebaceous glands and entirely unrelated to your recent oral sex (which is very unlikely to result in STD transmission).  In any case, this doesn't sound like any of the standard STDS.  They clearly aren't warts (which, by the way, take many weeks to appear, not "a couple of days later").

Good luck-- HHH, MD
