Customer Question

Small white/yellowish bumps, upper inner lip, center
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The cluster of yellowish/white bumps are along my middle upper/inner lip line. They don't burst but seem to be growing in terms of bumps.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dermatologists generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Thanks. These are harmless, blocked glands called fordyce spots. No treatment is needed for these as these may spontaneously resolve in a few months. This is not worrying. If you are bothered by them, you can get Laser or PDT treatment. This weblink explains everything about the condition: http://www.dermnetnz.org/acne/fordyce.html Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. Best wishes.
