Treatments of Angular cheilitis

Your treatment plan depends on the cause of the angular cheilitis. It may include: Antibiotics: Oral (by mouth) or topical (on the skin) antibiotics treat bacterial infections. Dental work: Dentures or other mouth hardware should fit correctly. Misaligned teeth or a bite may improve with braces, retainers or headgear. Dietary changes: Eating foods rich in protein, iron and B vitamins can clear up problems caused by a poor diet or lack of nutrients. Ointments or creams: Antifungal creams or topical steroids relieve swelling and pain from cracked corners of the mouth. Lip balm or petroleum jelly can keep your mouth moisturized and protected
