You have been diagnosed of having the condition because what you are suffering from are actually the signs and symptoms of Angular Cheilitis. A deep crack in the corner of the mouth with a characteristic red crusty lesion that spreads as the condition worsens. It is coupled with deep and sharp pain. The condition may occur in millions of people from all over the world. There is no age limit. It can affect anyone. And the saddest part is the reality that it can happen again and again; even lasting for few months if left untreated.
If you go to your doctor, most likely you will be given a prescription medicine such as antibiotic or cortisone based creams. The signs may subside but later on the possibility of resurfacing is likely to happen. This is one of the most common complaints of those who have endured the awkward and painful effects of Angular Cheilitis. You would end up spending a lot of your money in going back and forth to your doctor and buying creams and lotions that claim to eliminate the signs of Angular Cheilitis. But to no avail. You might end up losing confidence with the medical expertise of your family doctor. Or at worse get convinced that creams you have purchased are shams.
Why not consider this practical idea? You see, Angular Cheilitis can be caused by different factors. It can be an effect of deficiency in Vitamin B. In the same way that it can be caused by fungal bacteria. The latter may occur especially for those who are drooling. Saliva will be deposited in the corner of the mouth causing dampness, which is a great site for bacteria to live and thrive. Why? Because there is moisture present; with this in mind, you would then come to the thought that without the moist area, no bacteria will ever come to live, right?
There are home remedies available to cure Angular Cheilitis and the internet is a great source of information about natural cures for this condition.
