Weird bumps on my lips?

May 5, 2014

I am 15 years old and i just started getting really weird bumps on the left corners of my mouth, and a little on other areas of my lips. I just got into a relationship with my first boyfriend and we haven't participated in any sexual activities. We have only kissed. I'm starting to wonder if I am getting these bumps from kissing. I do have eczema but it was never on my lips. I'm starting to get scared that i have something bad. The bumps are really tiny and leak an oily, clear liquid. They often itch and sometimes burn a little. My lips get chapped like every 5 minutes and the creases of my mouth crack open sometimes. I really dont know what to do to make this go away.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Since you haven't had sex this would not be HIV. This could be related to your eczema. I would talk to your doctor about this and see if there is something they can give you.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Blood on crisps and ingested hiv risk?
Please, please answer. I'm scared.
