A patient asked: There’s painless white bumps across my vermilion border. I counted about 12. They’ve been growing and gave been there for more than 3 weeks. Help?
The most likely cause of painless white bumps across the top lip margin or vermillion border are:
1. Virus herpes
2. Clogged skin gland or early zit
3. Dermatitis from allergy
5. Fordyce Spots: good site to see images of what it looks like:
6. Kertin filled pseudocysts of clogged ducts of sebaceous glands
