The bumps on the lips are quite common condition known as Fordyce spots. These are formed due to blockage of oil glands and thus appearing as bumps. These are most commonly present on upper lips and never pose any problem except for mild cosmetic reasons. You need not to take any treatment for the same. At the maximum you can go for application of tretinoin cream over the area under medical supervision.
