Can white spots on lips be from herpes?

Probably not. Herpes on the lips are cold sores and the are sores that hurt not just white spots. Of you mean on your vagina it is possible but they can itch or hurt if herpes. White spots flown there could be normal or not. Would need to see them to tell.

Cold . Cold sores or fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (hsv-1) and are extremely common. Most people become infected as an infant or small child when kissed or by sharing eating utensils with an adult who has the virus. The virus is most contagious when someone has a cold sore, but can still be passed along by someone who does not. Many people do not even know that they are infected because the virus can "hide out" in the nerve cells for very long periods of time - for some people it hides out forever and they never get a cold sore. For others, the virus can "wake up" at any time and that's when a cold sore happens. No one knows exactly what causes a cold sore to appear - sometimes stress, illness, fevers, colds, sunlight, cold weather, menstruation, certain foods, allergies, you name it! her strep infection may have caused her cold sore outbreak. They usually last 7-10 days and are more of an annoyance than a danger unless you have a weakened immune system or contract a bacterial infection on top of the cold sore. There is a possibility of a superinfection of the cold sores with staph or strep bacteria called impetigo. If her sores are yellow, crusting and draining, you will want to have her seen by her doctor. She may need a different antibiotic if this is the case. There is no cure for cold sores but there are a few treatments for the symptoms: -over the counter ointments with topical Lidocaine can be used for pain, but will not shorten the course -applying ice and taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen can help with pain relief -do not pick at it or pop it since that can make it worse -antiviral medications such as valacyclovir are the only treatments known to reduce pain and shorten the course if taken as soon as you know an outbreak is coming. These are prescription medications, so you should discuss these with your doctor. Read more...

Is there anyway of getting rid of white spots on lips (developing fordyce spots), does lotion help?

Unlikely. Fordyce granules are small deposits of lipid or fat in the tissue and occur usually in the cheek area of the mouth. I have seen them on the lips and typically they are small in size.I do not believe that any kind of lotion or lip balm will be of any help to remove them. Read more...
There is, but... These spots are not harmful, so it is okay to leave them alone without any treatment. Unfortunately, lotions and other topical treatments have not been shown to be beneficial in making Fordyce spots go away. They can be treated surgically or with certain laser procedures; however, these carry some risk due to the nature of the treatment. Read more...
