mouth cuts

hi doc pls help dont know what to use for this either side of lip corners have like a cut, its not a herpes sore at all and its not due to dry lips either as i dont have dry lips i think it might of started after hi dose cortisone treatment. Its quite sore esp when opening my mouth or eating things like oranges as it stings! What can i use for this? i thought it would go away quick its been a week and its still like this, very uncomfortable. What does it indicate, someone said a lack of iron is that true? ive been generally unwell with a chronic condition but ive had that for years and the hi doses cortisone on and off over the yrs but never had this with the lips before...

Hallo Mni
It can be caused by yeast infections or low vit B intake. Try using Vit B supplements and apply something like Daktarin jel on the areas affected.
