Sufferers of Angular Cheilitis know best that living with such a condition can be quite a nightmare, especially when the sorest start to bleed, hurt and sometimes even itch.

If you want to moisturize the lips and the affected area, you should apply cocoa butter or Vitamin E on the respective areas. This will prevent the skin from further cracking, making it more elastic, thus the pain when you open the mouth will be considerably reduced. Aloe Vera and cucumber slices are also very effective in hydrating the area and killing bacteria, thus if you have such plants in your house or you can purchase them from the local market they will make great adjuvants for your treatment. Just rub them on the affected area and the itchiness will start to disappear while the swallowing and redness of the skin will go away after several uses.
You can also rub the affected areas with a pinch of salt and on the top of it put some drops of olive oil. This will calm the skin and make the condition bearable.
