I have bad sores all around my mouth, corners and all and it

Customer Question

Customer: ***** ***** I have bad sores all around my mouth, corners and all and it continues to spread, it hurts and stings like fever blisters, I have used nystatin, ketoconazole, monistat, and meds for athelete;s foot to no avail, the only thing that has helped is taking fluconazole by mouth, but my dr. says it can damage my liver, as long as I took it the sores healed but now are back worse than ever and spreading. What can I use to cure this?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It started out with a sore in the corner of my mouth, I was given nystatin cream, it didn't help. It has spread now to my chin other corner of mouth going down the side of my mouth, it cracks open, gets crusty and hurts
