Sores on corners of mouth
No, it is not the medication which has triggered this but infection, fever and stress can trigger what the lay person knows as "fever blisters" or "cold sores" which are actually a Herpes Simplex 1 virus. The virus lies dormant along the nerves until something (many times a fever or illness) will activate the virus causing first a blistered area that is painful and itchy which then progresses to scabbed over areas that can be painful and itching at the same time. Herpes Simplex 1 is very common. Many people have this virus. It can lay dormant for years then suddenly come out. For more information see:
