You should consider seeing a dermatologist (skin doctor).

If they are small and white or pink, it could be Fordyce’s condition. They aren’t contagious, so there is no worry there. Here is another link about causes and cures.

I am taking my mother to the dermatologist’s next week for a little hard bump that appeared on the skin just above her mouth. The area is called the philtrum. It showed up suddenly several weeks ago; that is usually the red flag. It feels like a tiny pea under my finger.

Dermatologist will use nitrous oxide probably. Briefly uncomfortable but bearable.

We should all pay attention to skin things that pop up almost overnight.
