cut in corner of mouth

Hi. A couple of days ago, i felt a cut in the corner of my mouth. like a papercut. I thought it was a cold sore at first, so i put on campho phinique. oops. and i put neosporin on it.. and i looked online and it said to put petroleum jelly so that is what is on it now. I looked it up and its called angular cheilitis? There was an online 3 day remedy to download, but i had to pay, and I don;t want to pay for that. Does anyone know what exactly cures it the fastest? I would really appreciate it cause i dont want it to get any worse.. especially when I am standing up in a wedding on Friday.. and just because I don't want it there anymore. If anyone could help me out that would be great.

Hello,
Treatment of angular cheilitis depends on the cause. For mild infection caused by bacteria , applying a topical antibiotic to the area for several days is sufficient to treat the infection. Minor cases caused by a fungal infection can be treated by over-the-counter antifungal creams. Please get the cause confirmed from a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
