Hi Since last week Ive had a cut on the corner of my mouth. It started off as two small cuts and has been scabby, and the scabs open every time I open my mouth since. These scabs are right on the corner of mouth, however I also have slight cracking on the other side. Also i noticed I had a white coated tounge and pale inner lower eyelids. Ive had no blisters or anything which would make me think its anything else (ie cold sores). From google images I think it is angular cheilitis as it looks similar to what Ive found and not cold sores. A picture of my condition is below. http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=34nr3bp&s=6 Anyone care to offer advice?View Thread
