I've had oral herpes for a while, and 2 weeks ago I felt the start of a blister, so I took valtrex pills and
it subsided. But shortly after that I kissed my dog's nose
(I always do) and
a dozen red bumps appeared on my upper lip. I applied acyclovir ointment and they subsided, but since then my upper lip has been incredibly itchy and burning, with a strange chapped quality similar what normally happens when I apply H-bomb ointment to my lips (small, itchy, rough dots), which I haven't done.
