Calm it down! Don't be so demanding. "Coco oil" obviously means coconut oil. Rub it on your lips. It wasn't that difficult to figure out.


obviously people trying to help that why thet posted their experience.No reason to be rude.

I treat the cracks in my lips with salt water. The first time I was afflicted with this ailment I went on line and one of the posts indicated that some people had recovered after spending some time at the beach. The thought was that salt water and maybe sun had done the trick. Figured it was worth a try so I mixed maybe 1/3 tsp of salt in roughly 6 ounces of hot water, let it cool and then dipped a Q-tip into the solution and applied it to the cracks, I re-applied the solution four or five times/ day and in three or four days the cracks had healed. Now, 18 months later, I've been attacked again by the bacteria and/or fungus that causes angular shelties and again I've used the salt water treatment. It's been two days and the cracks are nearly gone. It's worth a try, and a whole lot cheaper than any of the medications offered by drug stores.


I used Lotrimin cream on the affected area. The next day the rash was gone. AC is a fungal infection so any type of antifungal cream will be effective.


I have had AC many times. The only thing I've ever found to work is cleaning it and applying aquaphor. You need to clean it every morning and night with water and apply a generous amount of Aquaphor Lip Repair before eating and immediately before sleep. It should be cleared up in a day or two. If that doesn't work trying cleaning it with diluted apple cider vinegar.
