Thanks for your query.

Herpes develops as a group of painful fluid filled vesicular lesions. This is not so in your case.
You seem to have developed a simple allergic reaction which is called perioral dermatitis.
Treatment of the same includes avoidance of any creams or oils.
Avoid using lipsticks also for sometime.
Apply a topical antibiotic cream over the affected area.

Take antihistamines for itching.

Hope it helps,
