Help. I wake up and my lips are swollen, dry, but have water blisters, this happens over and over again. All I do is put Vaseline on my lips?

In brief: Blisters on the lips

You probably have herpes simplex (commonly called fever blisters).
This is a self limiting condition but its resolution can be expedited by using acyclovir if it too annoying and discomforting.
