Hi,

It could not be AIDS if you don't have any history of modes of transmission. It could be an infection or Herpes simplex if multiple, small and painful vesicles around lips. Please get it examined by a Physician.

Regards.

I kissed a girl 7 weeks ago. I noticed after getting dehydrated 6 days ago small white spots on side of lips looking like fordyce spots . I have had chapped lips last four days. I went to doctor who took a urine sample and said I had high keytones and lips do not look like std. I still worry myself. No pain at all. I had used releev as I was worried I was getting a cold sore but doctor said my lips don t show cold sore. Could I have mental stress at this point and am just worring?
