I had some teeth extracted last week. Will a small tear of the corner of my mouth blister up?

In brief: Usually Not
Most tears in the corner of the mouth heal by themselves, but if still red after a week you should see your dentist and ask if you need topical anti-fungal therapy to apply.

This is just like a cut on your finger. It will heal in about7-10 days.
