Thanks for the query,
You might be suffering from herpes labialis.

Your description of water filled tiny lesions exactly matches it.

It is a viral infection.

Usually it is precipitated by stress.

Please apply some anti viral cream like acyclovir.

You will get relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis and treatment
