    Weird thing at corner of mouth

    I have a weird sore at the corner of my mouth. It's covered with whitish crust, and it's painful to open my mouth past a certain range. It's been there for over a week now.

    It matches the description of a cold sore, but I have never had one before (I'm 20, male). Unfortunately, I haven't had sex in the past six months so I'm doubting that it's Herpes.

    I thought it would go away after a while, but it's staying there looking ugly and causing pain. I'm sterilizing it with alcohol to fight infection. Any other ideas?

    It could be a fungal or staph infection, common place to get them. Needs medical attention,probably be prescribed a cream that will clear it up quickly.
