Ocular herpes or allergies

I am trying to figure out if this is HSV-1 or Allergies OR fungal infection? First, swollen tastebuds and MILD thrush. 1 month later, pimples at corner of mouth and dry lips. They never blistered and stayed for 2 weeks. Even after picking and scabbing. They never scabbed over yellow like they say herpes does and never blistered up. ??? Angular cheilitis ? Slight cracking on corner of mouth after picking pimples TINY flesh colored pimples at back of mouth, not beyond the tonsils but above and before. Then a week later I started experiencing blurry, itchy, water eyes, felt like an object in my eye... swollen in the corner by tear duct. White looking when I lift up my eyelid in corner. Ocular herpes????? I can only find information on when it attack the eyelids , cornea , etc. I don t see any lesions. What are the options of what it could be?
