Hi, I have several pimples on the lining on my Lip and also at the corners of my lips. I have a one sexual encounter in the past month. We did not have sex and it was not oral. I sucked her breasts and I did not even kiss her. I got scared of STD's and then started researching WEB and the anxiety got into me. I suddenly started seeing bumps on Limps. I compared pictures and they looked more like Fordyce spots. My mouth is becoming dry not matter how much water I drink. Please let me know if I would have STD or HSV-1. I can provide some pictures if needed
