In brief: Dermatologist...
See a dermatologist or holistic doctor for help.
Are you using a lip balm or oil which could be irritating or causing a breakout? My md and facial aesthetics team says, you may want to see an md who works with obagi products. Obagi is only dispensed thru an md, and they have excellent, specific products for cleansing and treatment of acne or breakout. Have regular facials for healthy skin.

In brief: Zits
If they are true zits, you want to see a dermatologist who will treat them with an antibiotic of the tetracycline family.
These drugs will discolor teeth in formation of fetuses of pregnant women or young children's teeth that are still forming. Keeping immaculate hygiene-keeping your face clean, and not eating too fatty foods will also help.
