Get Rx from dentist: Sore corners of your mouth is called angular cheilitis and is a fungal infection caused by candida albicans. Your dentist can prescribe a topical antifungal cream to treat this. If this is a chronic problem, the dentist or your medical doctor will need to determine the source of this problem.
