I had this for about two and half weeks and it started after I had an ingrown hair in the corner of my mouth... after I removed the hair it would not heal up no matter what I put on it... chapstick, carmex, vasaline, and a whole host of other things. After visiting this site I agreed the it was an infection of sorts fungal or bacterial so I thought that would have to be killed for it to heal. Well I was 100% correct and had it fully cured in two days... yes two days. What did I use??? I used hand sanitizer about six times the first day and YES it will STING but it kills everything. I then applied an antibacterial ointment for cuts on it after I treated it with the sanitizer so it wouldn't dry out. Four hours after I used it I would tell right away it was going to work... I could open my mouth without pain. Today is the 3rd day and you can hardly see it. Don't listen to all this internal BS... its an infection treat it like one! changing your diet isn't going to do squat. Good luck, it works! Hurts like hell but it will be gone right away...

For future reference, lip moisturizers such as chapstick and carmax WILL NEITHER heal nor moisturize anything besides lips. In actuality, applying them to other damaged ares injures the area more. Don't ask me why, learned the hard way. (Have chronic dry skin on back of hands, they cracked while I was out and about one day and I left my lotion at home but happened to have chapstick in my pocket. Figured what the hell should be the same, it moisturizes... NOT!) Left my hands more red, inflamed and hurting worse than before I had applied it. (And no I don't have an allergy) Don't want anyone to make that mistake.
