Peroxide!!!! Or, if you have dentures, soak them in chlorine bleach! Rinse thoroughly, of course, before replacing denture in mouth.

I wash my mouth with dish washing soap, as well as my hands. I then apply generic hydrocortisone cream maximum strength with water resistance. I use my finger to apply the cream which is why I wash my hands. The cuts go away overnight. The washing cleans the cuts and the hydrocortisone cream dries out the cuts allowing time to heal. I have tried many methods and this is the fastest I have found. Also the cortisone cream seems to give some relief from the pain. In addition I sometimes apply anti-bacterial cream overnight if the cuts don't go away within 24 hours. Wash your mouth and apply the hydrocortisone three times a day. I hope this helps. One more thing try not to lick the cracks or poke with your finger. It only makes things worse.


I have dealt with angular cheilitis for years now so I will share what works the best and the fastest for me.

When I get the cuts in the corner of my mouth i wash the cuts with liquid dish soap. (Not the kind you put in the dish washer.) This cleans and dries out the cuts. Keeping the cuts or sores dry and clean is the number one concern here. I then apply hydrocortisone cream maximum strength with water resistance to the cuts or sores. I do this three times a day.

At night I put on an antibacterial cream. The hydro cortisone and the antibacterial cream also seems to relieve some of the pain. That is it! This usually works in 24-72 hours if you catch it early. Treating this doesn't have to be complicated.

Don't touch the cuts or lick the sores. This will make the cuts irritated and prolong the healing. Keep the cuts dry besides applying the cream. Avoid acidic beverages and alcohol.

It's has been the fastest and most convenient remedy I have found. God luck and stay well. I hope this helps!


Don't use bleach. AT. ALL. That will absorb into your body. Then you may not have A.C., but you will have cancer or be brain dead.
