Moments later I began to feel a stinging pain in the corner of my lip. Nov 21: I woke up and my lips were dry, so I began to lick them. I noticed that my lips were on fire!Nov 24: I spoke to a doctor and he told me not to worry.( that HSV 1 cant show symptoms within hours.)Nov 28: I notice white dots on the corner of my mouth( Maybe they been there since Oct 14.) I spoke to a different doctor whole took a look at the dots and informed me that they weren't HSV 1 She told me I had Angular Cheilitis( due to braces) DEC 2: I still have the dots and my lips sometimes burn! I've been using lip balm, which helps, but still.should I speak to a different doctor? I need to find out what this is! I found a similar case to mine, but even he couldn't figure out!

Hello. This is Dr. Love. The system says that you have requested a different expert.

I agree that the image appears to be angular cheilitis, which is really more of a descriptive term that means that there is some irritation/inflammation at the corner of the lips. There are many possible underlying causes, including irritation from braces or other dental work.

However, it is also true that a physical examination performed at the bedside by a doctor is more accurate than a review of a picture. And you say that the one doctor that has examined this also felt that this was angular cheilitis.

If you do not feel comfortable with that diagnosis, then it would be OK to seek a second opinion.

How long do these dots last? It's been 3 weeks now? Do herpes last 3 weeks?
Dermatologist: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 8 months ago

It depends upon the underlying cause. When it is due to braces or dental work, it may be a chronic problem.

Herpes does not last 3 weeks.

What about this?
Dermatologist: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 8 months ago

This also does not look like herpes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
