How long does angular cheilitis take to heal? Dry, scabby & flaky which make it hard to eat & smile. Caused by accutane? It's very aggravating. Tips?

In brief: Takes time

No quick remedy. here are some pointers.
Do not lick that area, if you do...may cause worsening. You may try B complex vitamins daily. Topical canker sore meds/ applications may help. Nothing definitive really. Do not expose to cold and avoid dryness.
