I am a 24-year-old male. I have small clear white bumps in the corner of the mouth. It is not hurting. Some are very small. They are more than 20 in number. I am currently taking Vitamin D3 supplements and Iron supplements.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have reviewed your query and understand you are worried about the lesions (bumps) on the corner of your lips. There are many reasons behind this kind of lesion. It is caused mainly by nutrients, dehydration, or a viral infection. The virus is named herpes, and it causes lesions on the lips. I know you are taking vitamins D3 and iron supplements. So, keep taking the medications until you get your levels normal.
If it is a herpes viral infection, it usually goes away on its own. No specific treatment is needed for that too. In the worst-case scenario, it can be cancer due to any reason. Mostly, smokers are the target of this type of severe disease. Smokeless tobacco (paan and gutkha) is also associated with cancerous lesions and other mouth cancers. This is prevalent in the region where you live. It is better to avoid any tobacco addiction and also avoid drinking alcohol.
I hope it helps. Please keep a follow-up for a better outcome in this case.
Revert in case of further queries.
