Brief Answer:
Bursting is not essential. You may have herpes.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The lesions of herpes may start as small blisters that eventually break open and produce raw, painful sores that scab and heal over within a few weeks. The blisters and sores may be accompanied by flu-like symptoms with fever, headache and swollen glands.
They may also remain as small pimple like bumps. You need to get yourself investigated by your healthcare provider.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
