    LIP SORES

    been smoking cigars for about a year now and have had no mouth problems to speak of but latelly the folowing has happened..
    I started developing a slight irritation just on the inside of the right corner of my mouth that developed into a blister and small break in the skin..it burns and is sensitive..over the last month the affected area has extended to about 1/4 inch above to 1/4 inch below the corner of my mouth..

    there is also a blister (but i dont have herpes)..smoking seems to irritate it..

    This is not a (canker type) ulcer .

    ANYONE ELSE HAD ANYTHING LIKE THIS?

    I think you said it isn't healing...I would be concerned about that & would visit the doctor.

    Ditto the sentiments here. Make an appt. and see what is going on,,a small biopsy to rule things out as it's probably nothing but always err on the side of caution.

    thanks for the concern but i have a background in the healing arts and am pretty sure its nothing like lip cancer, etc..especially not at this point..could develop into that in 2-3 years if the irritation continues though..just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and had any successful remedies..

    Yea Id get it looked at, a sore definetly shouldve healed by now. I was going to say if youre somewhere where the seasons change drastically that could be what is causing it. Every year I get chapped lips and some sores cause it gets cold and the air really dries out and my body takes a few weeks to adjust. So for me it seems like a hydration issue, maybe you should try and increase your water intake and see if that helps at all.

    Doctor is always a good idea.

    That being said, I use to have that all the time in college during exams (well before I became a BOTL). I had a nervous tick where I would unconsciously suck on the corner of my mouth next to the lip while nervous/studying. It would only go away after I remembered to baby it for about a week or so. Try rinsing with salt water and laying off anything that agitates it.

    I'm with the majority and recommend a Doctor's visit. Mouth sores can be caused by a lot more than Herpes or cancer. Digestive diseases can cause them as well as a myriad of others.

    There is a product called "Ulcerease" which can be bought over the counter in most pharmacies that will numb the area so you can eat. It's a mouthwash.

    I'll echo the sentiments here, probably nothing but still see a Doctor. I grind my teeth sometimes when I'm asleep and have irritated my cheeks because of it.

    Stop smoking until it's healed and stay away from acidic foods (orange juice, etc)

    Take a look at the twig and berries to make sure the bumps haven't went south or you got more to worry about than smoking.

    Thanks for all the replies..a lot of good advise..ive been smoking a lot of JDN Antanos lately and i think the strong wrappers are irritating the area..i notice the cigar always tends to end up toward the right side of my mouth and have noticed stinging in the area after smoking..

    WELL..i usually smoke at least 1 cigar every day but have laid off for the last 2 days and notice an improvment already..im gonna give it another couple of days and resume BUT i may cut down on the JDNs and see if that makes a difference..

    If all doesnt resolve in a couple more weeks ill see the DOC

    I'm guessing he's in the field of medicine but I'd still get it checked by an ear nose throat specialist. Anything inside the mouth or lips needs a quick looksee to determine what's going on.
