Probably a virus inf: common cause for what you have is a virus infection which typically settles down in 1-2 weeks. Lymphoma rarely cases any pain or tenderness of the lymph glands(which is usually due to infection/inflammation). ...Read more

I have a 2cm red/white mouth sore under the top lip and can be painful more  after eating, do I need a dentist or doctor. Had it for 2 months  please

Mouth sore: You should definitely start off by seeing a dentist. Since you gave us very little to work with, it's hard to determine the cause. It could be an infection from a tooth or gums, denture sore if you wear any removable appliance, a symptom related to a medical issue, or any number of different types of lesions. If your GD can't determine the cause\treat you, he\she may refer you to Oral Surgeon\MD ...Read more

What is the sore on the lip with a white center be?

Cold sore: Cold sores (also called fever blisters.) groups of fluid-filled blisters that often erupt around the lips and sometimes under the nose or around the chin. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 and are very contagious. The initial infection (primary herpes) may be confused with a cold or flu and can cause painful lesions to erupt throughout the mouth. Once a person is infected wi. ...Read more

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!

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?

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

I have like small white yeasty spots on my virginia lips , they sometimes itch and are sore sometimes?

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 peel off part of my dry lip it left an open sore i ate and it began to swell now its turned white like its infected. What can i do to reduce swellin?

See a doctor!: You will need an antibiotic as all open sores are susceptible to infection. In particular, an open sore on any part of your oropharynx (incl. lips). Plus, you should invest in some lip balm or discuss your chapped lips with a Dermatologist. Do NOT peel your skin! This leads to an infection, which is what you probably have. See a doctor! ...Read more
