Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: thanks for the query. This shouldnt concern you and I dont see this as some cosmetic problem in you. It looks to me like Fordyce spots and this is normally seen in people just it may be more prominent in some individuals as in your case. These are actually lip glands. It doesnt have any bad effect and it can be only cosmetic concern so treatment is not necessary in most people. But there are treatment methods such as laser,surgical excision or certain creams. You should contact your dermatologist about it. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards

Brief Answer: hi Detailed Answer: well there are specific gels: Tretinoin gel or accutane. I dont know is it available in your place. But laser therapy or criotehrapy should be available in any dermatology department.
