I woke up this morning with 3 bumps near the corner of my mouth. It has been really dry so I've been using aquaphor and neosporin. What is this?

Neosporin?: Are you using neosporin for the dryness? Unfortunately, neosporin is a common sensitizer and you may be describing a contact drug allergy. This would be more rare with Aquaphor.

Infection: JeffM838, Sounds like a minor skin infection that has developed into what is known as a carbuncle - an infection larger than a boil with several openings for discharge of pus. This may require antibiotic treatment. I would see your medical provider for evaluation.

White bumps near the corner of my mouth and on my top lips. Is this angular cheilitis? It feels sore when I lick it with my tongue

Yes: Due to saliva. Often due to habitual licking of dry/cracked lips. Often due to saliva during sleep, common if you have braces or wear a mouth piece at night. Try frequent application of chapstick or vaseline (Aquaphor).

Having cold sore-like bumps on the corners of my mouth. What could it be?

Having cold sore-like bumps on the corners of my mouth. What could it be?

Cold sores: There are several possible causes of your symptoms, but herpes would be my first assumption until I heard more and examined you. We can now de-stigmatize herpes and understand this infection to a much better degree given the tremendous research that has changed everything we know about herpes in the past few years. Other rare issues could be allergies, vitamin c deficiency and a fungal infection.

I have tiny bumps in corners of my mouth. They're not painful or noticeable unless I poke/stretch skin. What could it be? I've had them a long time.

I have tiny bumps in corners of my mouth. They're not painful or noticeable unless I poke/stretch skin. What could it be? I've had them a long time.

Don't poke!: It may be a nutritional deficiency - possibly bacterial or viral - but not likely if long term and w/o other symptoms. You might want to see your Dr for eval if they trouble you. Iron, zinc, Vit Bs and C foods can help - Fish, shellfish, poultry, legumes, peppers, leafy and cruciform veggies, nuts - all good!
