I have red and white sore on the outside of my lips, so everyone can see them and also the same on my tounge.. Please help!

Viral is likely: Sores on the inside of the cheek are usually canker sores or aphthous ulcers where there is no keratinized (callous) tissue. The outside lip and tongue have keratin, and most likely this lesion is herpes labialis. There can be aggravating causes for getting these, such as sun, dental work, or kissing. Do not touch these in the active stage, for they can spread to other parts of your body. ...Read more

Ok I have big cold sore on my bottom lips and it has only been four days since is appeared. I've been applying carmax on it religusly. White color nor?

Stay the course: Sores on the lips, the border of the mouth, and inside the mouth will turn white on the edges. The tissue lining the edge will eventually slough off. Do not pick or pull at the edges to hurry it along. You are doing well to keep it protected. Avoid hot liquids or spicy foods. This too will pass. ...Read more

I took 30 mg of adderal & now the inside of my bottom and top lip has white sores and the outside of my bottom lip has a cut/white sore  why happening?

Adderall SE? : From your question, it sounds like ur saying you took Adderall 30mg, once, and are asking if new mouth sores could be related? This sounds unusual. Adderall is usually taken for ADHD, and should be taken regularly, exactly as prescribed. It may produce dry mouth/lips. Dry mouth or lips may be more prone to chapping or the occasional crack. I'd go and have the sores you're describing looked at. ...Read more

Go get checked: Time to go to a health clinic, your doctor, planned parenthood, or even urgent care and have someone examine you. Go when the 'spots' are there so you can get an accurate exam. It could be 'yeast' or several other things. ...Read more

I have a sore on the inside of my right cheek, near my lips. It is white in color. I've had it for four or five days. What is the best treatment?

Wait it out: If it does not resolve or worsens it should be checked. That being said most of these are blocked minor saliva glands that have become plugged and/or injured such asbiting the cheek. They almost always resolve on do not need treatment. ...Read more
