Something on her lip

There is something on my daughter's lip that looks like a scratch. I was here a couple of weeks ago and went away, but now it's back. I don't know what it is. I know how everyone is going to say it's a cold sore, but her father and I have never had a cold sore in our lives, so how could she? No one kisses her on the lips, except dh and me. Any ideas of what else it could be? I think she is teething also.

  • here is some information about cold sores. Read it. If it doesn't fit into the description, the sore may be something else.

    it could be cracked lips, and there are a lot of reasons for this... anything from dry lips to cold sores, etc. Here is a link, explaining some of these conditions and treatments.

  • Well, I am wondering if it could be a scratch, but it's in the same spot as last time.

  • It could be a scratch, and it could just be a coincidence that it is in the same spot as last time.
