Thanks for posting your query.
From your description it seems that you have contacted oral herpes infection. Itching, burning and multiple small blisters are suggestive of an oral herpes infection.
Oral herpes can be transmitted by kissing the infected individual , by sharing the articles like cigarette,towels,tumbler,touch etc.
You may consult a dermatologist or Sexually transmitted disease specialist for proper treatment. Medical treatment is available and full cure is possible with treatment.
Till then avoid sharing food or towels to avoid further spread of disease.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
It can be cured with medication. There are no long term complications if complete treatment is taken.
You will have to avoid having sex with your partner till you are fully cured.
Hope my answer is helpful.
