Not oral herpes: Oral herpes is painful and also would not resolve in such a short period of time. Sometimes the small salivary glands i the lips can look like small red spots. If it resolves on its own within the next 24-48 hour then i wouldn't worry about it. ...Read more

See a gynecologist: Unfortunately without an examination, it's hard to say exactly what this is. I would definitely make an appointment today. Consider whether or not this is related to exposures in your laundry/sheets or maybe it has something to do with sexual practices. Track when they come and go and have a conversation with your MD. ...Read more

Zyrtec (cetirizine) (Cetitizine): If these are recurrent, see an allergiist for the propper diagnosis and treatment. For otc (over the counter) medication, most allergists prefer zyrtec (cetirizine) because it has more anti-inflamatory properties and lasts 24 hours. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) generally lasts 4 to 6 hours and causes more drowsiness, if the patient gets drowsy on zyrtec they might try Allegra (fexofenadine). ...Read more

Cold sores: Cold sores are painful blisters that form on or near the lips and inside the mouth.
