So the corners of my mouth started getting really dry and cracking, and they were all red, too.  At first I thought it was because I’d put acne spot treatment near my mouth, but that had only been on one side.  And even with lots of moisturizer, my mouth stayed dry and red!  Turns out those are symptoms of a Riboflavin (or B2) deficiency!  Probably because I don’t consume much dairy….  These supplements and lotion have definitely helped, though, and my mouth is all better and no longer looks like a was drinking fruit punch sloppily! :)
