Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Sir

thanks for providing clinical photograph, it really helps. The small spots on the lips seem aphthous ulcer, which usually occur due to stress, dehydration and vitamin deficiency.

I would suggest you the following

1. Oral Multivitamin supplements

2. Local application of oral local anaesthetic agent

3. Chlorhexidine mouth wash and gargles can be used

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance , will be glad to assist you

Take Care

Best regards

If this was a canker sore wouldn't there be some unevenness to my skin? also wouldn't there be some type of pain involved? I've had these spots for about a month or so now. it seems to me to more of a pigment issue of some sort..
