Blisters: Delayed-type chemical sensitivity caused by blood cells that have become allergic can cause skin blistering reactions. A good example is poison ivy sensitivity.

Blisters : Blisters on the lips speak more for a herpes simplex infection rather than an allergy.

Chemical allergy caused by sensitivity to components of lip balm, gloss, or lip stick could cause blistering, stopping all topicals that make contact with the skin would be prudent until the cause of the problem is identified.
