Have bumps in corners of mouth and flesh colored bump on lip. Herpes?

Hi, I have had small bumps in the corners of my mouth. I only notice them when I look very closely in the mirror. I have been examining my lips very closely since this has happened and today I noticed a flesh colored small bump in the middle of my upper lip . I did make out with someone last saturday and I am scared this might be herpes .

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

The lesions are less likely to be due to herpes virus as they present with cluster and will be very painful and there will be blisters which burst to form scab. Your lesions are not appearing like that and no blisters or pain. So you need not to worry for herpes.The lesions might be due to Allergic dermatitis / irritant dermatitis / infected glands. Consult your doctor for examination and management.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
