Crackle

I developed angular cheilitis as a side effect of being on Isotretinoin (which causes extremely dry/chapped lips). I tried putting some 1% Hydrocortisone ointment on it 3-4x daily and it helped, but the downside was that I had to keep reapplying it. When I told my dermatologist about it, she recommended the following:

>>>>> Dr. Dan's CortiBalm <<<<<<

Where can it be found?
Amazon.com
eBay
DermStore
100s of other online drug stores- just Google 'Dr. Dan's Cortibalm'
Your local pharmacy (sometimes you have to special-order it using a form you print out from Dr. Dan's website)

- Did it work?
Yes.

- Did it work better than the 1% hydrocortisone ointment?
Yes.

- How long did it take for the angular cheilitis to heal?
~3 days

-How did I use it?
Just apply on one's lips & corners of the mouth about 3x/day until it's healed. (I actually ended up doing it less- ~2x daily & it still healed fine)

-Why did it work?
Dunno for sure (I'm not a doctor). I suspect it's b/c of the microionized hydrocortisone in the balm itself.

I'd tried every other lip balm on the market, and this was the ONLY one that healed it.
