hi, ive had this problem for a week. i think i had a pimple or something at the corner of my mouth (just where the lips begin) and i think it went bad because i might have popped it or because of the skin stretching when i opened my mouth. so its not a pimple now and the skin at the corner of my lip has gone bad and looks like a weird cut. its not healing and even if it is, it is interrupted whenever i open my mouth. and when i open my mouth like really wide, then it can sometimes bleed. here are the images of what it looks like. please help me.
thanks in advance.

Hi onoonoono,

While I cannot provide medical advice or diagnosis, you might want to look through this slideshow about cold sores . It could be that this is what you are suffering from. If you think that your symptoms are similar, the slideshow contains some information about treatment and prevention of future cold sores.

Best wishes,
Atti
