The sores can be from quite a number of things. Have you also seen a dentist or oral surgeon for an evaluation? That would be my recommendation. ...Read more

If it doesn't go away, gets larger, drains anything, or hurts, go see a doctor. You can circle it with a permanent marker if that helps you remember to check it. ...Read more
