Common Symptoms of Angular Cheilitis

Severe angular cheilitis causes painful, cracked sores at the corners of the mouth. Common symptoms include redness, swelling, itchiness, skin tightness, and crusting or bleeding of the affected areas. Saliva can build up and irritate the skin, making the condition worse.

Common Causes of Angular Cheilitis

Angular cheilitis occurs because of bacteria or fungi which cause the infection, thriving in warm, moist environments. Specifically, a fungal infection, often Candida albicans, is a frequent culprit behind angular cheilitis. Other contributing factors may include vitamin deficiencies, ill-fitting dentures, or medical conditions like diabetes or a weakened immune system.

Identifying the underlying cause is key to effective treatment and to prevent angular cheilitis from returning. A virtual consultation with a board-certified doctor can help diagnose angular cheilitis and develop a personalized treatment plan.

Available Treatment Options

Various methods can treat angular cheilitis, including keeping the affected areas moisturized and using antifungal creams. In many cases, angular cheilitis resolves by itself, but specific treatments are recommended depending on the underlying cause. Treatment options for angular cheilitis include both over-the-counter and prescription medications. Topical antifungal creams, such as clotrimazole or miconazole, can help clear up fungal infections.

If a bacterial infection is the culprit, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic ointment or oral antibiotics. Corticosteroid creams can reduce inflammation and itching. In some cases, a combination of antifungal and corticosteroid creams may be recommended.

Lifestyle changes can also help manage angular cheilitis. Keeping the corners of your mouth dry and applying lip balm or petroleum jelly can prevent chapping and irritation. If you wear dentures, make sure they fit properly and clean them regularly.

FAQs

Angular cheilitis, also known as angular stomatitis or perlèche, is a condition where the corners of the mouth become inflamed, cracked, and sore. It can occur due to various factors such as fungal or bacterial infections, nutritional deficiencies, dry mouth, or irritants. People of any gender, ethnicity, or age can develop angular cheilitis.

Angular cheilitis is usually diagnosed based on the signs and symptoms, such as cracked, red, and sore corners of the mouth. Your healthcare provider may also consider your medical history, including any underlying conditions like diabetes, immune deficiency, or inflammatory bowel diseases.

Treatment for angular cheilitis depends on the underlying cause. Antifungal creams like Lotrimin can be used for candida infections, while moisturizing lip balms or lip butter can help with dry lips. Addressing nutritional deficiencies, such as vitamin B2 (riboflavin), may also be necessary.

Angular cheilitis itself is not contagious. However, if the cause is an infection like the herpes virus or oral thrush, it can spread through close contact with an infected person.

Some home remedies that may help alleviate symptoms include keeping the area clean and dry, applying petroleum jelly or coconut oil, and avoiding irritants like harsh lip balms or acidic foods. However, it’s essential to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Yes, certain health conditions can increase the risk of developing angular cheilitis. These include diabetes (due to high blood sugar levels), immune deficiency disorders like HIV/AIDS, inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s disease, and Sjogren’s syndrome (which causes dry mouth). Chemotherapy and malnutrition can also contribute to the development of angular cheilitis.
