Angular cheilitis: A rash at both corners of the mouth simultaneously is angular cheilitis. Different causes may include vitamin deficiency, an autoimmune condition that can affect the mouth, viral infections, yeast infections, bacterial infections, atopic dermatitis/eczema, food allergy, contact dermatitis (for example to toothpaste or Chapstick), to name a few. Getting a check by your physician is usually best.
