In brief: Maybe herpes?

If the lip started out itchy and these little bumps were tiny blisters filled with clear fluid I would say it was a cold sore, also known as herpes labialis.
Otherwise I'd need more information to help figure out what it is. If it is herpes there are pills you can to prevent it happening again. In any case, I'd recommend you see a doctor to help determine what it is.
