My lips are swollen, sore and bright red with a red border round them. Also tiny white pimples. I don't think it's herpes. It isn't itchy. ?

In brief: There are several

possible causes for this.
I would recommend that you see your doctor or if you are on HealthTap Prime, you could consult with one of us on that platform so that we could see this on video or a photo. It could be a contact reaction to something, an allergy, impetigo or possibly herpes (but you're right, it doesn't seem like herpes). Hope you can get it checked and treated soon.
