Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The bumps and painful chapped lips you are having may be present due to excessive exfoliation or due to a dry weather. There is nothing much to worry. You can use a lip guard or a lip balm with a mild steroid ointment to get an instant relief.

yes, i have a lower lip thats swollen on the inside and a white small blister on bottom of my gum just below the tooth. i started to feel tingling on Friday night after eating a lot of popcorn and salt. Saturday morning, i had a small patch of white tiny bumps and swollen inner lower lip. I used warm water and salt in the morning and at night. Now Sunday night the swelling is down considerably and the now theres only one tiny bump that looks like a pimple at the bottom of my gum line. i do have crowns on my lower teeth.

i think i had sex with a guy who has a type of genital wart but im not sure, i asked him and he wont say but many other people told me otherwise, he no longer will talk to me. i have these small hard pimple size bumps in my mouth for over a year. they are the same color as the rest of my mouth mainly, but at the tip of the bump it is slightly lighter i think its because the skin is pulled tighter at the tip of the round bump then the bottom. i have one under my tongue , not on my tongue but between the spit ducks, one on my gums on the inside of my bottom jaw, about half an inch down from my teeth sightly to the right and one on my gums on the outside upper jaw above my two front teeth on that piece of skin and gum line that attaches my lip to my gums. on my lips in the corner of my mouth when i pull the skin tight i see and feel tiny hard white bumps. some are touching some have an mm. or two mm. between them but they are close. i have not tried to pop them, im to scared to. i also have this ruff patch on my gums on my outer front jaw. i can scrape this white plaque off the ruff patch and when i do i can see it patch better, it kinda looks like some bumps but its hard to tell. i am 20 and i am a little over weight 188lb, i have smoked for six years now. and i also think i have other stuff going on down stairs but im not sure i really dont know much about anything down there.
