Itching inside left lip, swelling, mouth sores, blister formation, small fluid-filled bumps. Causes?

Hi. Today I noticed a faint itch on my lower inside left lip, so I itched it thinking nothing of it. But shortly after the left lower lip started to swell and double its size. I noticed there are 2 sores in my mouth, but they don t look similiar to canker sores. Also, a large blister formed around them. As the day rolled on I noticed small bumps, not exactly blister like, that would leak fluid all along the opening of my mouth, only on the lower lip. I m not conviced its a cold sore or canker sore. What do you think?

Thanks for asking the query,

Fluid filled blisters in the lower lip are usually seen in viral infections certainly herpes infection. Herpes is usually a acute viral condition in which itchy blisters are formed that spread rapidly and bursting with scratching to infect the new areas rapidly. In later stages ulcerations can be seen in the mouth.
Consult your family Physician for an easy diagnosis and appropriate drugs.
Maintain a good oral hygiene take lukewarm saline gargles.

Take care...
