I bit the inside of my bottom lip twice about three days ago and it turned into what I called a cold sore.
I love the Internet. I've been so frustrated with my sore mouth and noticed that now my gland is swollen and I'm feeling bit tired. It turns out all that is normal and it's not a cold sore which is worse. I have a canker sore. I'm learning new things all the time. Here's what I learned:
Are Cold Sores Another Name for Canker Sores?
No, although cold sores and canker sores are often confused for each other, they are not the same. Cold sores, also called a fever blister or herpes simplex type 1, are groups of painful, fluid-filled blisters. Unlike canker sores, cold sores are caused by a virus and are extremely contagious. Also, cold sores typically appear outside the mouth – usually, under the nose, around the lips, or under the chin while canker sores occur inside the mouth
Now then.... If only I could learn not to bite myself.
My mouth is hurting but we're quite pleased with the new bed. So the first test sleep was good...
