I get cracked lips on the corners of my mouth about once a month. My doctor tested me for the herpes simplex virus and I tested positive. So he is treating my angular cheilitis, cracked lips at the corner of mouth, for this.
However all it is are cracked lips. No sores or scabs. I understand that the herpes simplex virus presents in this way.
Could this be a different condition? What else could be causing this?
