Hi dosent seems to be herpes at all..its a viral infection and it goes away with the completion of its cycle...water filled like blisters a common feature..and they r painful and itchy ... dryness and cuts at edges are if concern please do have a opinion with a dentist who practices oral medicine or visit a periodontist or oral surgeon..feel free to ask any further queries best of luck

Hi there.. I can understand your concern.. but according to your symptoms you do not have oral herpes.. in oral herpes, there is small painful blisters around lips, nose which occur during stress, Fever, when immunity is reduced, which gets resolved within few days. But it is recurrent.. since you don't have blisters and it's dryness of lips, it could be due to vitamin b deficiency.. please have healthy foods- green leafy vegetables, sprouts, fruits.. have multivitamin supplements. Keep your lips and skin moisturised. Have plenty of fluids.. hope this helps you..
