Acne on Lip

Hello,

I recently started getting small pimples on my upper lip.  I only get one or two tiny whiteheads that appear during the night.  Usually they disappear by the time I leave for work just from washing my face or brushing my teeth.  Also, my lips are a little red and I've had dry skin around my cheeks.  Does anyone know what this could be?  I've read everything online about cold sores and don't think that's what this is.  They don't itch or hurt, ooze, or scab.  Could this be an allergic reaction?  We just got a dog and he's licked me right across the face a few times.  Also, I'm not really proned to bad acne.

Thanks!
