Angular chellitis is known to commonly be a mixed infection of bacterial and fungal. So what I've done is kind of a combo of 3 things:

1. Coltrimazole (or another over-the-counter anti-fungal). Follow the directions on the tube for use (it won't say angular chellitis, but they're all superficial fungal infections). I continue it for 2 weeks even it appears that the angular chellitis has subsided long ago, otherwise it could reoccur.

2. Rubbing Alcohol Wipe...this is not a pleasant experience, but its anti-bacterial properties are extremely potent. I like using wipes instead of solution so it doesn't get into the mouth, and I just do it once a day by pressing (NOT scrubbing) the wipe onto the sore for approx 15 seconds. Rubbing Alcohol does NOT have anti-fungal properties so it can't be used alone (same with neosporin)

3. Let it heal! Most important is not letting it split, so keeping your mouth closed as much as possible. Easier said than done...sticking to liquids or foods that you can take small bites and not touching/picking at it helps. Also cover it with Aquafor (or another petrolatum) to keep saliva out and avoid re-inoculation.

With this remedy, chronic becomes mild in a couple days, and mild disappears within a week.

Using clotrimazole worked for me too!
What I do is I mix some clotrimazole and antibiotic oinment together and apply.
Literally goes away in a day or two!
