Not herpes, but a blister in between my mouth and nose? Started out like a tiny pimple and is now flat and just keeps scanning over?
Impetigo?: Probably you mean scabbing, not "scanning". It would be helpful to know how long this has been going on. If more than 7-10 days, I agree herpes is unlikely; but that still may be possible if a shorter time. Impetigo, a superficial strep or staph infection, is possible. Any non-healing sore should be professionally examined. See your doctor if it isn't healing after 7-10 days. ...Read more
How long does it take a herpes blisters to rupture? Can a vaginal bump/pimple in my labia Minora have a shallow opening?
Probably not herpes: On moist surfaces like the labia minor, herpes lesions typically break within a few hours; often the blister itself is never seen, just an open sore.

But a single lesion in a hair-bearing area usually is just a pimple. ...Read more

But if uncertain, testing can be done to know for sure -- for virus in the lesion, or blood test for HSV1. ...Read more

It appears in the form of a cold sore with possible swollen glands and a small pimple like lesion that eventually ulcerates. Then becomes dormant. ...Read more

Pimple: Where is the bump? Is it full of fluid or is it firm? Does it recur in the same place? Herpes occurs in clusters at point of contact (oral or genital) or along nerves (dermatomal).

Your pcp can help diagnose it better. ...Read more
