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

In brief: 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.
