A cold sore is at the edge of your lip, at the line between your lip and regular skin.
A canker sore is in your mouth, not on your lip.
A cold sore is caused by herpes and it can give your girl herpes through oral sex.
A canker sore is not herpes.
If you can't tell whether you have a canker sore or cold sore, go to a doctor while you still have the sore. This is for your own health, not just your girl's.

Cold sores, on the other hand, are small red blisters that generally affect the mouth and facial areas, but usually appear on the lip and outer edge of the mouth. In contrast to canker sores, cold sores are extremely contagious and are most often caused by the Herpes Simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). More importantly, when oral herpes lesions and/or its contents come into direct contact with the genital area through oral-genital sex, genital herpes most likely will develop.
Although it is more likely that the sores that develop in your mouth will be canker sores, unless you are absolutely certain, you may not be able to tell the difference between a canker sore and a cold sore by sight. In that case, treat your sore as though it were a cold sore — that it is infected with herpes and contagious. It is recommended that the partner with the cold sore(s) abstain from having oral-genital sex with an uninfected partner until the sores have completely healed. However, refraining may not always be possible, so you and your partner need to use safer sex methods every time you have oral-genital sex (i.e., use an unlubed latex condom, dam, or other barrier that completely covers the areas of the cold sores to help prevent the transmission of the herpes virus).

I've had them before and been t the doc about them... here's what you can d to get rid of this.. and this will not be comfortable.
"Alum" is a salt compund that you can buy from the grocery store. Crush a small amount up with a spoon wet the end of your fingertip just enough to collect the alum on it and hold it to the white spot until the sensation of (well you'll see) goes away. do this twice a day until it's gone - average time id like 2-3 days. It will go away and then if You're lucky they won't come back. The doc said that it was common for people my age (at the time I was a teenager)
