They way to many times to have an hsv1 oral outbreak and having puss would also imply its not herpes

You might want to have one swabbed to confirm they are in fact herpes sores.

If you are having pus containing sores on your lip every other week, you need to be seen promptly by a medical professional for a proper work up. Odds are these are not herpes related but obviously there is something going on that needs to be dealt with!
