Ok, so my symptoms were very serious. My lips were inflamed all the time, cracking, peeling, drying out and lesions almost every week. I tried all types of lip balms, almost everyone on the market. With no help solving the bacterial infections, I ventured to out side sources, hydrocortisone wasn't working, nor was any type of lip balm. So her is what I found after paying 50$ for a 'kit'. It seriously saved my lips. The embarrassment was more than enough to make me try this, and after few sessions, I found that the lesions worked.
First get Antibacterial dishwashing soap. Any type of over the counter dishwashing soap as long as it is ANTIBACTERIAL, lemon works well.

Second some Vaseline or petroleum.

Third some non alovera tissues for blowing your nose.

Third. Vitamin b.

First get a extremely clean bowl, wash it out and fill with warm water. Soak your lips in the bowl for a half minute to a minute to get the lesions to open up and become soft tissue. Make sure they are damp.

Wash your hands and then the bowl with the antibacterial soap.

Take your Clean washed hands and apply about a pennies worth of the antibacterial soap to your index fingers and start to wash your wet lips with it, the lesions will open up. Start a good lather on around your lips taking about a half minute to a minute on each lip, and really work your lips. Be gentle but still make sure to thoroughly lather them up.

leave your lips with the lather on and wash your hands thoroughly to get all of the bacteria off you hands, really make sure the bacteria/fungus on you hand are all off. Use warm to hot water.

Them take your clean bowl, fill with warm to hot water, but nothing that will burn you or hurt your face and wash of the soap. Make sure to get it all off. Take your time, wash them really well.

Then re washes your hands to get off that bacteria, thoroughly.

Take the Clean tissues and dab your lips and mouth area, use as many as you need to but DO not use the tissue more than one dab, this why you have a box. Be generous with the tissues since you have a lot of them.

You will feel your lips tighten up; this will make them feel clean, almost totally tight. This is good, it means that your lips are clean of bacteria.

Now take the Vaseline, petroleum jelly, and apply to your lips. This makes the bacteria that was once there, not be able to get air to it .no air= no place for the bacteria to grow. Be generous but not too much, do what you think is ok.

Now let that sit for 2 hours. Do what ever you need to do and then after the 2 hours wipe off the Vaseline with some tissues. This will make the bacteria not be able to grow on your lips and mouth area.

Do this process one more time. It will take about 4 hours or so. But it will totally help. It worked wonders for me.

Now the b12 vitamins are to supplement the lack of b12 that kills off the bacteria, angular cheltis is a lack of b12 in the system, or from what I have heard it is. Now take the vitamin everyday and repeat this process many times as you feel necessary, like me I repeated a few times a weeks for over month. The first time for mild cases should do the trick, but if you are like me and have extremely red sore unhealthy lips. This could take a while.
But it seriously worked for me. I have the occasional outbreak of bacteria, but it is in what I eat. I stay away from alcohol, yeasts, bread and cheese. It kind of sucks but it is what I need to do to keep my lips respectable, not embarrassing and to bearable to eat burritos.

I paid 50$ or well my dad paid this, to help me get over it. The pdf file was kinda worth all of this knowledge.I pass it on to you, cause I know how it feels to be looked at and judged by this.

Good luck. And you are not alone.

This method does work although I modified it slightly to work better for my situation. I put bandages on during the day time as well and 2 days later it is almost completely gone.
The main things you NEED to have are antibacterial soap, Vaseline, q-tips and paper towels or tissues.
Sanitizing the sink area and tap handles is important to keep as sterile of a work environment possible. I washed my hands with the soap to kill any bacteria then washed the corners of my lips and entire lip area with soapy fingers. Be sure to lightly rub the area for about 45 seconds, don't rub too hard though, then rinse with warm running water. Cup water in your hands and dip your mouth in the water in your hands, repeat this for about 30 seconds. This preps the area for the Vaseline. Dry with paper towel, using parts of the towel only once. When area is dry, dip end of q-tip in Vaseline and generously coat one side. Do NOT dip the q-tip back in the jar after you've used it. Get a new q-tip and coat the other side of the sore area. Immediately cover area with bandaids and go to bed. Do NOT drink anything afterward and have your teeth already brushed. To speed up healing time, do this during the daytime too. If you can't have bandaids on your face during the day do every step but putting the bandaid on. Keep Vaseline on it ALL day. That keeps the bacteria from being able to grow and your lips from getting dry and continuing to crack. You should cleanse area and reapply Vaseline up to 4 times a day especially after eating. While eating be sure to cut your food into tiny pieces so you don't aggravate any cuts you may have on the sides of your mouth. Drink all drinks through a straw. It's a pain to deal with this ailment but be patient and with this method it WILL go away. I was skeptical but it worked for me.
Remember: Clean, Vaseline, Cover.
Don't try to substitute Neosporin for the Vaseline. The ingredients in this method are simple and effective. Don't try to use anything else as you will become frustrated.
So glad I found this posting! :)



I get cracks in the corner of my mouth from time to time and they disappear within a few days.

This time I had three weeks of it non-stop; one side, then the other side, then both...etc...etc...

I read through all 13 pages on this site and decided to try this remedy.

I did this process 3-4 times over 2-3 days and it has completely solved the problem inside of 72 hours.
