White dots in mouth
Posted on: 11/06/2007
Hello just wanting to know what genital warts look like if u have them in the mouth. when i stretch my lip its color turns purple and there are white dots that are surrounded by each other. just want to know if these are herpes or warts.
This doesn't sound like either. Herpes lesions are painful blisters or erosions that develop intermittently, but are not always there. Warts on the lips are more likely to be "flat warts", which are usually not sexually transmitted. They are usually small flat-topped bumps that can be skin-colored or slightly lighter.
