Treatment will depend on the cause of the angular cheilitis. It can be due to a bacterial infection that can be treated with Bactroban topical ointment for at least 7 days or it can be due to a fungal infection that can be treated with over the counter topical anti-fungal cream, like Canestin. It can also be due to a malabsorption syndrome that can be treated with Vitamin B Complex shots.
