Probably won't: Triamcinolone cream, a corticosteroid, is not the treatment for the most likely cause which is Angular Cheilits(inflammation of the angles of the lips). This condition has multiple causes. Treatment with an OTC anti-fungal cream will often cure it(such as Lotrimin). Avoid constantly licking the area. For more information go to: WikiWand.com and search: Angular cheilitis
