What are the side-effects of hcg drops ?

I had tried the hcg diet and lost 15lbs. It s been 3 wks since I stopped taking the drops and I have noticed that on the inside of my bottom lips there appeared a couple of what looked like round sores that hurt when I use my toothpaste or mouthwash . And when I ate some pineapple it made the sore hurt and bleed . Are the side effects from the hcg drops? I noticed when I first took the drops it stung a little and if I accidently dropped it on my lips it really stung and hurt.

Your mouth sores don't appear to be related to HCG drops as these drops cause headaches,constipation,rash and moreover you have developed these sores 3 weeks after you stopped taking HCG drops.
The cause for your sores could be sharp edge of a tooth,teeth biting,salty and spicy foods,drugs like pain killers or alcohol,deficiency of iron,zinc,VIT C,VIT B12,and many viral or bacterial or amoebic infection.
