Other than B vitamins, what other home remedies are there for perleche / angular cheilitis / stomatitis?

Also known as cheilosis. I always thought I had cold sores but it turns out these cracks at the corner of mouth are called perleche and aren't even contagious. But they are awful. There is supposed to be this home remedy out there which you have to buy and I think that's ridiculous, home remedies are always shared among people and selling them is cruel. So nobody refer me to that "foundation" that's selling the home cure, ok! I know I need to start taking B vitamin complex and iron, and that one great way to do this is eating Brewer's Yeast. Some people suggest drying the area out, others adding moisture to soothe it. And everyone seems to agree that the antifungal creams and hydrocortisone that allopathic doctors prescribe is basically useless or nearly so. So, what is this secret home remedy other than what I have mentioned, does anyone know more? Thanks in advance!
Minx, thank you for the advice.
K10394, your incredulity is insulting, especially coming from someone so ready to trust allopathic medicine and considering I asked for advice on natural cures. It is not at all shocking that this is caused by a vitamin deficiency, it is a known fact actually, and lots of health problems are caused by bad nutrition. If your doctor told you they aren't, well, that's just a symptom of the allopathic medical problem where doctors want to treat individual symptoms instead of the whole person. Allopathic medicine has its good points but they are so egotistical, and wrongly so since they ignore obvious things and often cause harm with drugs & unnessary surgery, and you are speaking with their voice here. While the prescription cream may address the physical symptoms, I was asking for a natural way of doing this (like the calendula minx suggested) & taking vitamins gets rid of the underlying problem. Actually after two days of b complex it's all better!

I really feel for you hun cos i've just managed to resolve my little girls's cracks at the corners of her mouth ....... Sore & cracked mouth lips and tongue, cracking and splitting skin around your fingernails and grainy and sandy feeling in your eyes are signs of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency hun .... eat more foods rich in B2 ie~

milk ~ if you can tolerate dairy, liver, kidneys, cheese, leafy green vegies, fish, eggs, yoghurt and beans.

Vitamin B2 is needed in our bodies for healthy nails, skin and hair, will benefit vision and alleviate eye fatigue and works best with B6, B3 and vitamin C............... so, take a multi B complex supplement,particularly if you are lactose intolerant or vegetarian ~ get one including all the B's ie ~ B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12...... as they all work best as a group.... Don't buy any of the B complex of vitamins individually unless specifically instructed to do so by a nutritionally oriented physician or naturopath.

Eat more foods rich in vitamin C ie ~ citrus fruits such as lemons, limes and organes, berries, strawberries, potatoes and tomatoes and leafy and green vegies.

Take a daily fish oil supplement as it is rich in omega 3's and will help to keep hair, skin and nails healthy.

Or simply eat fresh fish .... not the tinned varieties .... like salmon and tuna or grind organic flax or linseeds and sprinkle over your vegies.

The whole and natural food will always be the most nutritious and easiest to assimilate.

Things that could be robbing you of your precious B complex of vitamins are ~ antiobiotics, antidepressants, laxatives and diuretics, otc cold and flu meds, coffee, tea, sodas and soft drinks and alcohol .................. when we're under stress our B vitamins will be depleted first hun so bolster your immune, digestive and neural system by taking a B complex supplement ♥

Go to your local health food store and get some calendula cream to soothe the cracks on your mouth in the meantime.

hope this helps u

How do fellow canker sore sufferers treat their lesions?

Here is my own remedy
1- Ok the first step sounds hokey, but I believe you have to be nourish yourself so the first step is to drink alot of water and take a multivitamin.
2- Apply hydrogen peroxide w q-tip to the sore 2-3 times per day letting the sore bubble for 30 seconds then rinsing out.
3- Apply "aphthasol" (prescribed) a few times a day after peroxide.
4- Get plenty of sleep.

I say that this method works and by that I don't solely mean pain reduction, although that is a benefit, but also shortening the duration of the sore from over a week to just a few days.
BTW I do get chronic canker sores ( aphthous stomatitis)

I feel your pain...literally...I've got one now but it's almost pain free and healing now only after 3 days...

What I do is take lysine 500mg/day to try and prevent them or if you feel 1 about to break out (due to stress or staying up late), I up my dose to 1500mg/day. It has reduced the duration of my canker sores from a week+ to 2-3 days.  (+ info)

Is this a Medical Malpractice case?

I went to the ER last night because of a pain in the back side of my head and my mouth is full of blisters; the doctor diagnosed me with "sinusitis and stomatitis" without even a blood test, urine test neither x rays!
He prescribed me antibiotics, antihistamines and pain killers and sent me back home. What if I don't have any of those? and if I do have what he diagnosed , wouldn't the Hospital need tests in order to release me and prescribe me drugs? what should I do in this case?

My 9 year old son has hand, foot and mouth disease?

Originally the Dr. said it was herpetic stomatitis, now the sores are all over the inside of his mouth. He is on anti-viral. He is in so much pain he can't eat and can hardly drink anything. I am very worried. Anyone with experience with this, advice would be appreciated. This has already been going on for 1 week.

has anyone been diagnosed or know about CNS hypersensitivity?

several symptoms were suggested to be connected, such as: IBS, migraines, Raynauds, Lupus, Sjogrens, reactions to antibiotics for certain bacterial infections, and viruses, dry eyes, Rheumatoid artheritis, dry mouth, stomatitis, heart palpitations.

I think you are referring to 'Dysautonomia' a condition in which I have been diagnosed with. Type the word into your search engine, and a variety of websites will pop-up with useful information.  (+ info)

High fever then low body temperature?

My daughter is 14 and a half months old. She's had a high fever(102.5 F and up) for 5 days; today it is 96.0 F. I took her to the ER a few nights ago and they diagnosed her with Stomatitis, a viral infection in her mouth. She is not eating or drinking much, but shows little sign of dehydration. I guess I am just looking for advice. Thank you

I concur. It is probably viral like they said, and now that the temperature has come down, recovery wont be too far away. Of course, her mouth hurts so she wont be eating anything solid any time soon. You should encourage to drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. Soon she will feel hungry so have some soft (semi solid) nutritious food which she could take without feeling pain in the mouth.

And good luck to both of you.  (+ info)

daughter with mouth ulcers and cold sores?

My 16 month old daughter was sent home from daycare sick last Friday, she had 102 fever Saturday I noticed a bump coming up beside her lip and some bumps on her tongue. Then one became 9 around her lips and ulcers all thru her mouth. Her fever lasted until Sunday, but the ulcers and bumps are still there. They aren't as fluid like as earlier they are drying up and look like they are healing, but I can't really wipe/brush her teeth because her gums bleed from the sweeling and ulcers. The dr says it's stomatitis, has anyone else ever had or heard of this?

look up primary herpetic stomatitis......
look at some of the pics for same and see if it matches...
Sounds like that.

at 16 mos...will be hard to treat....as they can't swish and spit so well the meds that would help.....
