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..
