corner of mouth (side of lips) cut/wound skin problem

hi, ive had this problem for a week. i think i had a pimple or something at the corner of my mouth (just where the lips begin) and i think it went bad because i might have popped it or because of the skin stretching when i opened my mouth. so its not a pimple now and the skin at the corner of my lip has gone bad and looks like a weird cut. its not healing and even if it is, it is interrupted whenever i open my mouth. and when i open my mouth like really wide, then it can sometimes bleed. here are the images of what it looks like. please help me.
thanks in advance.

I am sorry that I don't recognize exactly what you have there. I do know that if you just have a split/cut at the corners of your mouth where your lips meet, it can usually be healed by putting antifungal ointment on it. I don't know if this will help you, but it may help someone.
