Sounds like herpes: The only way in which you can get a definitive diagnosis is to have a doctor look at these, possibly a dermatologist. Without being able to see them and ask questions it would only be a guess. Hope this helps.

I have a couple small clear bubbles or blisters on my lips that do not hurt at all. I can't even feel them. Could it be herpes?

I have a couple small clear bubbles or blisters on my lips that do not hurt at all. I can't even feel them. Could it be herpes?

Maybe: In general herpes is very painful. However, it varies depending on the stage that you notice them. At the vesicular stage or bubbles, they may not hurt as much but when they turn into blisters, they are very painful as the nerve endings are exposed. If they are already blistering and still non-painful, they are probably not herpes but another infections or condition altogether.

A small red dot turned into itchy blisters. It's a perfect circle and has not spread. The circle has only got bigger. I don't feel it is herpes zoster?

A small red dot turned into itchy blisters. It's a perfect circle and has not spread. The circle has only got bigger. I don't feel it is herpes zoster?

You're right-: It's good to keep a broad list of diagnosis- the red dot that became blistery may be a vesicle or shingles. However, there is much more than one vesicle. Other considerations- bedbug bite, tick bite, contact dermatitis, and others. Contact your doctor and discuss your findings- it will help him/her alot.

Venereal wart.: A dry flat sore that looks like white skin in the genital area could be another type of STD known as venereal wart caused by human papilloma virus. A negative test for herpes cannot rule out all other STD's. Visit your doctor to find out what to do.

I have a small blister or a boil on my lower lip. It is painless. Can it be herpes by any chance?

I have a small blister or a boil on my lower lip. It is painless. Can it be herpes by any chance?

Not necessarily: This could be a clogged oil duct, an insect bite, trauma, a mucocele (which is a benign bulge in the lip tissue), OR herpes. It is less likely to be herpes since it is painless (herpes is usually tingly or painful), but I would have a doctor look at it and possibly culture it to know for sure.
