Burning lips: See your doctors for singe tests... It can be another type of herpes, a fungus or something more serious like a vitamin B12 deficiency or other conditions. Check it out...

Blisters: Blisters in clusters "could" be herpetic lesions, viral in nature. Sometimes sensitivities to products on lips could be a factor. Discuss with your dentist at this time so he can see the lesions while they are present.
