How do I get rid of the dark spot around my mouth after having angular cheilitis?

I had Angular cheilitis for about a month and a half, my doctor prescribed me Elidel which worked great, the cracks around the corner of my mouth are gone and my skin is back to it's normal smoothness BUT the corner of my mouth still has this really dark spot like someone punched me and it left a bruise. My question is, how can I get rid of this discoloration from my skin?

Try papaya kojic and licorice base soap and cream which are
available online. These work wonders.
Maybe it will work on you too.
Try searching it through Google 'shopaholic's bargains'  (+ info)

Does anyone know of a cure for Angular Cheilitis?

I looked it up online and found a million different websites that want to charge money, but I am wondering if anyone here knows of anything. It is called Angular Cheilitis and I am looking for home remedies, or something easy, not an expensive tube of who knows what off of an online site.

Also if anyone baught a tube of the remedy online, what is in it so I can buy something cheaper at walmart.

Thanks in advance.

I had Angular Cheilitis and temporarily cured it after a trip to the dermatologist. He prescribed a medicine containing trimicolone and nistatin, if I recall correctly. It worked quick and easy. Unfortunately, if I stopped using the medication for just one week, my sores would come back. I looked on the internet and I found only those websites that charge money, except this one (linked under sources). Apparently, some guy posted (for free!) the information that is normally sold for $70. It basically says to wash your sores with dish soap and seal it with Vaseline. Check it out, it worked for me.  (+ info)

How do I get rid of my Angular Cheilitis?

Ive tried many cremes and expensive ointments, but over two months later I still have the Angular Cheilitis, I know there is a thing you can download that has the solution, but it cost money I dont have, so does anyone know any home remedies? And THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

My dentist suggested using Carmex throughout the day and at bedtime. I did that, and it really helped me.

Hang in there, I know how painful it is. If you don't feel better soon, you might want to call your dentist and see what he/she suggests, if you haven't already done so.  (+ info)

Any over the counter cures for angular cheilitis?

I don't have health insurance, but I've been told by medical students that it looks like angular cheilitis and it keeps coming back. I heard that fungal creams work and I was wondering which ones anyone has had luck with. I'm currently using Target brand vaginal cream, which seemed like it worked, but then it came back on the other side and its been there for three weeks. Please help. It's really starting to impact my work, my relationships and dating with this on the corner of my mouth is impossible.

how do you tell if something is a cold sore or angular cheilitis?

On the corner of my mouth I have something that resembles a cold sore but I have been researching and it seems like it could possible angular cheilitis. It started out looking like the corner of my mouth had a crack and it got a crust over it which I kept picking off because it looked really bad and it keeps getting worse.

Could the person asking about Angular Cheilitis check this out?

There were some answers to the question about treatment for Angular Cheilitis, but none contained the perfect, simple remedy that I found, thanks to my dentist.
He suggested I try taking a small amount of vitamin B1 (Thiamine) daily. Within just a few days, it disappeared and has stayed away as long as I'm faithful taking the supplement. It only takes 2 days off the B1 for it to begin to return. Hope this helps a little.

Diane E,
Thank you very much for sharing your new info from your dentist.  (+ info)

What is the home remedy to cure angular cheilitis?

I've read a bunch of articles that say there's 2 ingredients used to make it but none of them tell me without having to pay $47. Can someone help me?

Angular Cheilitis can sometimes be caused by fungal disease or malabsorption of some vital nutrients like B2, Iron and Zinc. Go see your doctor and he/she will probably recommend an anti-fungal cream as well as vitamins shots. If you want a more natural way, you need to treat this two ways, to cover all your bases. First with an anti-fungal supplement like Fungal Defense from Garden of Life (this has several herbs like oregano, basil, lemongrass, olive leaf and cinnamon bark as well as yucca juice and garlic juice), you can buy this online at: http://www.cnnutrition.com/en/product.php?find=GOL-A04-FDE-01-01. As far as the malabsorption of key vitamins and minerals: you need to get yourself a good multi-vitamin!

What causes Angular cheilitis and how can I treat it?

I'm 17, and I live in Washington state so it's pretty chilly in the winter time. But I don't lick lips too often and I always try to apply lip balm. Actually I've been getting this after I started using my lip balm.

You may want to consider nutritional supplementation. There is also a low cost alternative using household items that may or may not work.

If you like to know more, please check out either of these articles:


I sincerely hope you will find a solution soon as I know how painful / uncomfortable it can get during winter.

Best.  (+ info)
