Living with Angular Cheilitis

Aug 1, 2008
Angular Cheilitis is not a rare thing among people, it just isn't discussed. Millions of people contract it every year, doctors think it may be do to a vitamin or iron deficiency. For instance if you suffer from anemia angular cheilitis is one of the symptoms that can be most frustrating and painful because your lips are always chapped and cracked. The other population that is really susceptible to angular cheilitis are the elderly. This is actually not directly because of their age but rather because the elderly tend to lose their teeth and with that comes licking of the lips.

When someone licks their lips it creates the perfect environment for fungus and yeast to grow at the corners of the mouth causing this painful condition.
Here are some symptoms to watch for:

-Sores anywhere on your lips and/or corners of your mouth.
-Bleeding when the mouth is opened wide
-Spilting on the corners or inside of the mouth that are very painful

With symptoms as noticeable as that it is pretty easy to see why someone would be self conscious about their condition. When angular cheilitis appears it is important that you treat it immediately. As the symptoms grow worse not only do they get more painful but they also get more unappealing.

Make-ups and things used to conceal the repercussions of angular cheilitis can be only more damaging because they lock in the fungus and yeast. So not only are they noticeable side effects but they can not be covered up. If angular cheilitis goes untreated then the condition worsens and becomes more painful and noticeable.

No one wants to look in the mirror and see cracks, sores, and fissures staring back at them. It is a depressing and painful sight. There are ways to treat this condition but the longer you wait the longer it will take for those treatments to help. Angular cheilitis can be healed if just takes some time and the right array of resources.

Don't be fooled though that if it heals on its own that you are out of trouble. If your condition does heal on its own then the chances are extremely high that it will come back again in the next few months. If you don't treat it it will continually come back over and over. Watch for the symptoms, treat it immediately and be consistent in your treatment. You don't have to suffer with the pain and low self esteem that comes with Angular Cheilitis, so don't.
