Two somewhat symmetrical "somethings" have appeared on the corners of my mouth (see link to photo below) over the past five days. Mildly irritating, no pus, no white or yellow liquid, no scabs, no bursting, and some clear liquid discharging from one but not the other.
For background, I haven't been eating the best the last few months. Admittedly, it's been either not enough food or not enough vegetables. Which is why I tagged angular cheilitis/candida/etc. I've also recently moved to a desert climate from a very humid environment.
However, I did begin dating a girl (kissing included, nothing beyond) who did not show any visible signs of cold sores and who said she wasn't afflicted. I've also read on here that cold sores I've been tested negative for HSV-1 and HSV-2. Granted, I know that doesn't mean much for me currently, but wanted to provide as much background as I could. Could it also be her lipstick?
Lastly, I have been smoking marijuana out of a water pipe (bong) with regularity. Could it possibly be an irritation from either the glass, the smoke, or some kind of allergic reaction? I understand that a visit to the doctor in person may be in order, but I wanted to check here first.
