It is related to other conditions such as the lack or absence of some vitamins, diabetes, xerostomia, or other diseases that compromise the immunity of the person. It is also related to it as a consequence of some drug.

It is easy to identify the presence of angular cheilitis, because a reddish wound is observed and at times bleeding at the level of the lip corner.


A good medical history must be taken to determine which is the causative agent and refer to the appropriate professional, because as we see there is not only one cause for its appearance.
