I have tiny blisters on my lips. I have had them for over 3 weeks. I first thought they were cold sores (I had an outbreak over 7 years ago), but these tiny blisters are not progressing like cold sores do. They just remain on my lips. They are about a millimeter in size, so very small. They also have a slight metallic taste when I rub my tongue over them. Any ideas?
Apart from cold sores they can small irritated hair follicles also. In cold sores, pain, burning, tingling, or itching occurs at the infection site before the sores appear. Then clusters of blisters erupt which break down.
You can take some antihistaminic and apply some topical antiseptics. Then consult a dermatologist as you may need antibiotics.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing
