Hi, starting around two months ago, I have had white spots appear on my lips. They are small, around 2 - 4 mm in diameter. Usually one appears in the morning, sometimes up to three will appear, always on my lower left lip. They often disappear by afternoon or evening. I believe that the fluid inside them drains out through cracks in the skin. I have had three doctors look at them and they are baffled. Cold sores have been ruled about because of the prolonged duration. Another doctor suggested eczema, but I have been using vasoline lip balm. I have read about Fordyce Spots, which is consistent with my oily skin and acne problem, but the white spots only appear on the lower left lip, and never anywhere else. There is no pain or discomfort associated with the spots.

Any ideas? A picture can be seen at:

Thanks for any tips.

I have just noticed the exact same thing you describe here on my lip (lower left as well!), although this is a first time occurance for me. I have no idea what to make of it...

I've found out that white patches is depigmantation and is called Vitiligo. My doctor referred me and my son to a dermatologist and that is the finding. You must check with a dermatologist since you could also have a thyroid problem and that is what is causing the white patches. I've tried finding out what I can do about this for my son. It's around his eyes, one on his neck, one each on his ankles and one on his back. It seems that any sun or sunburn could increase the size of them or create more white patches. I've been trying to find out about a cure. I found something online an herbal rememdy but I need more info. If anyone knows anything, I would be greatly appreciative.

Hi ha cha and others. I have exaxtly he same symptom as cha cha, only a little bigger. A white spot, entirely circular, turned up one morning after caual sex. I wonder if this is a contagious disease that I can easily transmit to others through kissing. I also wonder if it has been transmitted to me through oral sex, and therefore whether it is some form of sexual disease.

Hi,

I have a white patch in the corner of my lips. I even have stopped smiling coz' it's visible. It's been for the past 1 year and i had visited 2 doctors and of no use. They put me on a cream called Tacroz and it didnt work well. I am very concerned now not knowing the right doctor and the approach.

Expecting some comments on these. I stay in Chennai, India.

I have the exact same thing, it has been lighter in the past years, but now its just a white dot- and i keep bitting the top off. Iv had it for about 8 years, but now because its so white, i think i should go to a doc. Have you been to one?

i have the same thing. but its weird because it looks like there are 3 small dots right next to each other, they arent in a straight line but they are really close. and it also seems like its not directly on top of my lip, but maybe its under the layer of the skin of my lip.

Last night i came back from hanging out with my friends and i noticed that my lip was split in the middle, i took a shower and it only grew more, getting whiter. So i figured it was only dry lips, so i kinda peeled it away and now theres a circular sore in the middle of my bottom lip. Its so tender and agrivating.
Im trying to trace my steps, i was at my boy friends house 4 days ago, he had strep throat or thats atleast thats what he thought. We had sex like usuall, but we didnt kiss since he was trying not to give me his strep. So i doubt thats what it came from.
Last night i was with my friends and we were taking resin hits, so i thought, the resin + chapped lips could have caused this. Anyone have anything similar?
