I have been suffering angular cheilitis (which I suspect)

Customer Question

I have been suffering angular cheilitis (which I suspect) for few weeks now - the corner of my mouth now are no longer cracked but there are still dryness and a bit of redness which is still uncomfortable. I have used Ego Resolve Tinea Cream which has Active Miconazole nitrate 2.0% but it has not getting better. I even applied Mycospor broad spectrum antifungal cream containing Bifonazole 10mg/g (1% w/w) but the issue has not been improved. I even used a combination of 1% Cortizone cream + 2% Miconazole cream but not helpful. could you please help?
Thanks, Cindy

Hi there ...
Sometime Vitamin deficiency like low levels of Vitamin B1 , B6 and B12 levels could be the reason of such tongue issue , I will suggest you to have Vitamin supplement along with local cream application that will help you out .
