Many cheilitis sufferers get into a sort of panic once the first symptoms appear. They are embarrassed because of the annoying and unsightly sores and scabs and start to itch and pick the scabs.
Here is our advice: Don’t do it!
One of the worst things you can do is picking and scratching the scabs and white flakes around your mouth. Not only is the chance of re-infection very high due to the constant touching of the affected area, it would also hinder the healing process quite a bit.
No matter what Angular Cheilitis treatment you are using, it is important that you leave the scabs and flakes alone. Try not to scratch or pick in a panic or because you are embarrassed and want them to go away quickly. If you pick the condition would get worse.
Use the treatment, stay calm..and most importantly, be patient.
