Angular cheilitis is inflammation of one or both corners of the mouth. Angular cheilitis is sometimes referred to as angular stomatitis. The inflammation can cause pain in the lips, cracked lips, ulceration, reddened skin, and tenderness at the involved area. Typically, both sides of the mouth are involved, but the condition can occur on one side only. Drooling or dry mouth are sometimes associated symptoms.
