What are the white spots inside my lips and above lips (with photo?


I have been having white spots inside my upper lips and above upper lips for a long time.

Q1 May I know what are the white spots inside my upper lips (see red box in photo)?

Q2 May I know why is the skin above the upper lips whiter than normal skin color (see blue circle in photo)?

Why does it happen, what are the condition name and what treatments available?

Thanks a lot

Do the spots itch or hurt?  I don't see anything that's really abnormal.  If you are having other symptoms, you may want to get them checked out- otherwise, people have unique skin textures and tones- I would just chalk it up to that, but if you are concerned (even cosmetically), you can consult a doctor who will be able to do an in person exam and gather more of your medical history in order to assist you best.
