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.
