Angular Cheilitis needs to be treated right.
It seems that totally eliminating the fungal bacteria which are responsible for angular cheilitis can often not be achieved with modern chemical medicines (hydro cortisone et al.).
It just doesn’t seem to work in many cases. Furthermore, prescription drugs like antibiotics can often lead to other problems and side-effects down the road.
We are in luck because we have a choice of several natural ways to treat Angular Cheilitis today.
Some of those natural ways to cure Angular Cheilitis are using herbal medicines and natural home remedies which are relatively easy to obtain.
Root cause for Angular Cheilitis is bacteria living in a moist environment.
We know that the root cause for the cheilitis is a form of fungal bacteria, the bacteria which survives in a moist environment, such as at the corners of the mouth. In fact, fungal bacteria simply cannot survive without such an environment.
It is obvious that some of the most effective ways to heal and treat Angular Cheilitis is based on drying out the breeding ground for those bacteria. If the moist environment is taken away, the bacteria cannot survive and thus the Angular Cheilitis can be cured.
There are some important aspects to consider when we are using such dry-out methods:
Angular Cheilitis by definition means cracks and lesions around the mouth, those are actually characteristic for the condition. It should be obvious that we do not want the cracks and lesions to become worse than what they are already.
A good and effective Angular Cheilitis treatment must take this into account. There are certain natural methods to dry out the affected areas without having a negative effect on the already affected skin.
