hi..thanks for your query.
From the pattern of eruptions you describe,i feel you have Herpes Labialis. This is an infection of the lips, mouth, or gums due to the herpes simplex virus. It causes small, painful blisters commonly called cold sores or fever blisters.They usually appear within 1-3 weeks after you come into contact with the virus.
symptoms preceding eruptions include:Itching,burning or tingling of the lips or skin around mouth.
Symptoms may go away on their own without treatment in 1 to 2 weeks.Antiviral medicine can be prescribed. It can help reduce pain and make your symptoms go away sooner. Medicines used to treat mouth sores include:Acyclovir,Famciclovir,Valacyclovir.These medicines work best if you take them when you have warning signs of a mouth sore, before any blisters develop.
hope this helps..take care!

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. As you describe the bumps appears to be due to dehydration and secondary infection. When dry lips are not there the infection ceases. as they are dry again it recurs.
I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.
Other causes could be low fever, gastric irritation, anxiety etc which can cause dry mouth and lips.
I advise you to follow some diet recommendations as avoid taking more of spices, chillies, junk foods, and oilyfoods. as these may cause dry mouth.
Wishig for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
