don't gargle with peroxide, this is extremely irritating.
cheilitis is usually from lack of sleep or poor nutrition or lack of vitamins in your diet.
you need to stop the nystatin and immiquimod and peroxide rinses. you are making this stuff up without a doctor supervising you.
it doesn't sound like you have thrush or immunocompromose
you need to take a multivitamin and eat more fruits and vegetables and natural vitamin C and get more sleep.
then your cheilitis will get better.
