What is the difference between an open and closed sore inside the mouth when dealing with std prevention?

Not much different!

Sore_throat
Transmission of std's are supposed to be prevented by all means .Direct contact with tissues of the mouth be it open/closed sore , still is dangerous.

Hi. I think I have a canker sore on my lip. It looks like the description I've read online. But I think they only grow inside the mouth. Help....

Mucous membrane

Canker_sore
The picture shows that it is still confined to the mucous membrane and not skin. This is compatible with canker sore

our 15 yr AA/Fem is getting flat sore breakouts on her top lip (not inside the mouth) during/on her menstrual cycle for the past 9 mon - not herpes?

Could be acne

Head-mouth
If this isn't herpes, it certainly could be acne. Acne is sensitive to hormonal fluctuations that occur with the menstrual cycle and can cause painful pimples anywhere on the face.

Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

I have a sore at the side of my mouth that keeps cracking open, it won't go away. What can I do to get rid of this?

Fistula

Ent
The opening is probably a fistula draining tract from a nearby infective tooth. The real treatment is root canal therapy with antibiotic (Clindamycin) one week before treatment.

I have one sore on my arm dont know where it came from and wont go away i dont know what it is dry mouth thirsty alot have diarea hair loss?

See a physician

Dry_mouth
It sounds like you have a few unexplained symptoms that may or may not be linked, and may or may not be serious. Maybe with more details and a focused question we can help with some pointed advice. You may consider seeing a local physician for an evaluation. Best of luck!

I have white bump on bottom lip for 5 yrs It's now scaly and wont healdoc says its a cold sore.yer ago mouth swelled &pain in face &earMRI said reactiv lymph nodes. No cancer. Help! Docs don't know?

Two problems

Cold_sore
Let another doctor look at your lip if the scaly bump is always there. It could be precancerous but probably not in a 35 year old female. I would guess that the facial pain and swelling is unrelated to the lip, and I would believe the doctor on that one.

I've got a canker sore in my mouth right now and tomorrow I have to go to the dentistso should I go or let it heal first?

Canker Sore

Blisters_in_the_mouth
I would still keep your appointment. PErhaps they can laser treat it. They will be aware of it, it is not contagious, and they will comfortably work around it.

How to make a mouth sore heal faster?

Maybe canker sore?

Sores
Canker sores are common aphthous ulcers of the surface of the mouth that occur situationally, often in response to stressors, are bacterial or viral, & can be treated topically with many OTC products that reduce local discomfort & potentially speed healing. However, oral/dental problems & a number of systemic diseases cause canker sore-like lesions--Crohn's, Behcet's, STD (sexually transmitted).
