See doctor: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You can get sexually transmitted diseases through oral sex and it would be prudent to see a doctor. If you do not have one, go the the city of county health department for an evaluation. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex if you have sex,

Part of my inner cheek inside mouth [next to teeth] became slightly whiter, then the surrounding skin, could this be something dangerous? Mildly sore

Several potential…: …causes comes to mind: irritation from biting/chewing the lining next to teeth; thrush/oral candidiasis from corticosteroids (Do you rinse your mouth well after Nasonex & inhaler use?); irritation from smoking; abnormal mucosal cells (dysplasia); & more. Since it is sore, reassure yourself with a trip to your dentist, who can better evaluate the lesion & advise what to do about it.

Sore: Based on the description it is hard to tell what it is. But I recommend that you be seen by dentist or at least a primary care physician to make impression of what you have and then refer you to specialist. If you incidentally bit your lip or burned it, it may be due to injury but without having more history and physical exam, it's hard to make correct impression.

My long distance boyfriend has a cold sore and I'm seeing him this weekend- can I kiss his face and can he kiss my face? Like cheek/forehead not mouth

It depends...: Is the diagnosis certain? Facial herpes can occur, but less common than oral (lips, etc), and it is unusual to have outbreaks in two area, i.e. both cheek and forehead. If he has it and you do not, best to avoid kissing and other direct contact, e.g. no oral sex on you. You could have a blood test. If already positive for HSV1 (as are half of all people), you're immune, can't catch it again.

Major problems: The health of the TMJ can affect one's entire health and immune system. The teeth, muscles and the jaw joints function as a triad to insure proper chewing, speaking, and other movements that we take for granted, when you have chronic TMJ dysfunction (tmd) the symptoms can develop into headaches, facial and ear pain, and facial discomfort. You may need meds, pt or mouthpiece or all.

I have a thin cut in my mouth, about 1/2" long. My cheek is swollen and the gum and jaws are sore. 3 days! Home/holistic/homeopathic remedies???

Give it time: No home remedies worth a mention. "Holistic" is without real meaning. All homeopathic remedies are useless except as placebo. Homeopathy made no sense when invented 150 years ago and it still consists of silly dilutions of useless molecules until there is not a single molecule left in the distilled water you buy in a weird bottle. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is sold as a sleeping pill. Other antihistamines work bett

Wide variation: It's nice to try to diagnose something yourself by looking at pictures on the internet, but you really need a trained professional to take a look and diagnose this. Canker sores (aphthous ulcers) can vary widely in size, appearance and number.
