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!

See a dentist: While the sore may heal on its own, get to a dentist while it is evident so it can be properly evaluated and diagnosed. It may be something not requiring further treatment or it may benefit from certain meds depending on the cause. It really needs to be evaluated by a professional to know. ...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?

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
