I wanted to thank this forum for helping me diagnose my AC. I studied this blog on my way to the health food store to hunt natural remedies. One week of the following regiment cured my AC. I was having cracked dry lips, painful corner slits that were raw and nearly bleeding, an itchiness in my mouth and tongue, colds sore-like mouth corners, you name it.
1. Concentrated Oregano oil drops (3 drops in water, 1-3x per day) Brand: Oreganol P73
2. A probiotic dissolve pill dedicated to oral health (1x day)
3. Oil pulling, using a combination of 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil and a few drops of tea tree oil (20 min per day, 2x day) Please be sure not to swallow this mixture. Tea tree oil should not be ingested but can be swished around in low quantities.
4. To soothe the corners of my mouth, I applied a clean dose of coconut oil with a drop or two of tea tree oil.
Within a week, the slits had sealed, my lips no longer chapped, and the itchiness was gone. I was effectively cured. I am continuing the regiment, oil pulling just once a day now, so to not have a relapse.
