I have read that while perhaps less common, angular cheilitis can be caused by sun screen/lotion/lip stick/lip gloss/anything that for whatever reason is an irritant to your skin. After coming to this conclusion i have stopped using the lip gloss and i hope everything will clear up soon. If not, at least i have good resource for treatments!
