Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Swollen lymph node is found in case of an infection. Since you have a sore throat and a rash on the body, most likely it is a viral sore throat causing swollen lymphadenopathy and viral rashes. However for the small bumps on the lips, since it has been present for 3 months, it is less likely to be herpes sores which presents as a blister or as multiple blisters on or around affected areas.

To completely rule out HSV 1, it is diagnosed with lab tests, including DNA -- or PCR -- tests and virus cultures.

Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.
Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon.

Wishing you good health.
