Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. What you’re suffering from is known as cheilitis, the commonest cause of which vitamin B complex deficiency and taking B complex supplements in the form of capsules does help.

The other possibility is of eczema for which oral antihistaminic / calamine lotion/ good moisturizers/topical steroids help. If the symptoms persist, then please consult a dermatologist and get angular cheilitis ruled out.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
