Re: Cut on the corner of my mouth keep reopening
Keeping ointments on the cut may be preventing it to heal.
You might try letting it dry out, keep mouth closed except for drinking liquid foods/drinks with a straw, maybe Ensure or other. Every time you open your mouth it will pull on the cut and reopen it.
You can clean your mouth with toothpaste and water swishing around and out without opening mouth very much.
If it is a gapeing cut, best to see a doctor. If it is like a paper cut the above should work.
