It’s kind of hard to see but my outer lips hurt I just happen to see the small bumps on the inside and my lips are dry

Yes, these are a little hard to see in the picture. However, from what I can see, it may be related to irritation due to the dryness of your lips. It could also be something called Fordyce spots. These are benign, harmless bumps that often appear on the lips. They are enlarged oil glands. They do not require any treatment unless they are causing cosmetic issues. Hope that was helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
