Cracked sides of mouth

I was researching this as it's painful and have tried everything over the counter. One article was lack of vitamin D. Any other long term vets have this?

Dr prescribed me 50,000. Mg of Vit.D. Took one yesturday and already today almost healed . I tanked out on D last year and bone pain was my symptom. Thank you for vitamin advice .

I get this too!  I thought at first it was because of not drinking enough water or winter time or because I sleep with my mouth open and have severe dry mouth! Who knows! I do take additional Vit D3 (10,000 daily) and put vaseline on the cracks at night (not the chap stick, the real vaseline goop) and also use Biotene for dry mouth/cancer sores. That is the only thing that seems to help. Then after awhile the cracks go away get better/come back again. Mystery to me! Vitamin blood-work is all good. 

Good luck with your cracked lips.
