Ummmm I'm not fully sure, few months I believe, they don't hurt or anything, don't they grow inside the lips gums ?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Should I be concerned, my co-workers think it's herpies, but I don't think it is

No--definitely not herpes there

These are just Fordyce spots and they can form on the lips or on the oral mucosa

Totally benign and nothing serious

But if they bother you they can be removed with prescription tretinoin cream from a dermatologist

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
