White dots on lips? Cold sores or not?
Lately I have been getting white dots on my lips that sometimes burn and itch. Usually they're small, and at first I thought they were caused by my skincare samples that contained Hyaluronic acid or Sodium Hyaluronate, but if it is, it doesn't affect my skin adversely, just my lips...I'm not actually putting it on my lips though, just on my face. :P My dad does get cold sores, and I stopped kissing him on the lips about 6 months ago, except about a week or two ago, and I saw him last night (when I suddenly had a big breakout of white sores,) but he only kissed me on the cheek. Can cold sores transfer from a kiss on the cheek? I can't figure out what is causing these little sores, which have recently turned into a little cluster on one side of my bottom lip. It makes me self-conscious and I just want them to go away. Any ideas how to get them to go away? Or what's causing them?
Also, I'm a virgin and do not have herpes. :P
