Non healing: lesion may need evaluation
The bumps may be a reaction to the moisturizer. Use of topical steroids may help

Need more info: It's hard to diagnose this problem without seeing it. Please see your family physician very soon. If it is a herpes infection the sooner you get treated the better. In the meanwhile do not kiss anyone until you physician makes
