I have been getting cold sores for years now, and they are always in the same place on the left side of my lower lip. Two weeks ago, I just got over a cold sore, and about two days ago, a red bump appeared on my skin, which attaches a little bit at the edge the corner of my mouth. So, I decided to try and pop it, but it was not ready at all, so it became infected and open. I have attached a picture of the sore. I have no idea if it is actually just a pimple healing or angular cheilitis or a cold sore.
