In brief: MOUTH CORNERS SORE
Without looking i couldn't be sure, but it sounds as if you have a condition called angular stomatitis or perleche.
Often due to a yeast infection. Stop chewing gum, use a mild toothpaste (tom's of maine is a good one); don't eat raw fruit without cutting it up. A prescription product called mycolog cream can sometimes help.

Sometimes also called Cheilosis, and may respond to treatment with "B" vitamins - ie. riboflavin.
