I suffer from angular cheilitis. Are there any good natural herbal remedies for treatment of angular cheilitis?

In brief: No quick treatments

Angular cheilitis is the cracking at the corners of the mouth, with some inflammation and probably some candidal yeast overgrowth.
A little Clotrimazole antifungal cream and a little Hydrocortisone cream for week can make it better. There aren't herbal creams that decrease inflammation the way Hydrocortisone does. A doctor can check for signs of vitamin deficiency, lip eczema, or oral herpes.

In brief: Yes

I usually recommend otc Hydrocortisone ointment for moisturizing and inflammation symptoms but one could probably use beeswax compounds with Hydrocortisone as well if one would prefer to stay with natural treatment.
