You said something impudent or in literal terms you are ill.
Some STD's can cause oral lesions (sores). The most common of these are herpes (either oral or in rare cases genital) and syphilis. If you have any concerns you should see your doctor or health department and let them find out what it is.

Will taking Adderall cause bumps on the tongue?

Some people have experienced painful bumps on their tongues after taking Adderall, but it is not a common side effect. If you take Adderall, or are going to be in the future, I would recommend taking it as prescribed by your doctor and seeing how it works for you. If you do happen to get tongue sores, then you're probably better off asking your doctor for an alternative medication. Adderall causing bumps on the tongue is a rare occurence, but it has happened.

What causes small white bumps on the surface of the bottom lip?

Often confused and assumed to be the early signs of STIs it is more often than not a case of "Fordyce Spots", the condition is basically small sebaceous oil glands which get blocked and cause spots. Not helping with the confusion is that in men these spots can also be found on the gland of the penis. As this is a benign condition there's no set 'cure', a common recommendation are the same as treating regular spots: Try to open the pores in your lips with a hot towel when washing your face. If you're really bothered by the spots, or if you're unsure if this is the correct diagnosis, it is still best to seek help and advice from a GP or dermatologist [the latter will usually be more accurate, due to the confined field of research].

I actually had the same issue, but mine was do to a medication I was taking I take allegra for my allergies and had been on it for about a month and a half at the point of time when I noticed the bumps and my mouth was very dry. If your on any regular medications you might want to try talking to your doctor about the side affects of them and if that could be a possible one. But for your dry mouth my dentist recommended using a toothpaste and mouthwash called biotene it works wonders and also cleared up both the dry mouth and bumps in my mouth
