I have had occasional outbreaks of Angular Cheilitis over the years. Usually it’s no big deal. I just wait a few days, and my body heals itself. On the most recent occasion, it got progressively worse over a two week period. I tried a number of remedies I found on the net (sodium bicarbonate, detergent & Vaseline, lip balm, hydrocortisone, Neosporin etc) without any success at all. Finally gave my ‘cure-all’ miracle cream a go, better known as SUDOCREM. It’s a well known product in Europe (most commonly used for nappy/diaper rash, but can also be used for cut, scrapes, burns + lots more), and can be difficult to get hold of in the US. It contains anti bacterial as well as antifungal agents in a water repellent base. Anyway, to cut a long story short, applied this to the sore, twice a day for 3 days and am now completely healed.
