    Major (for Angular cheilitis)

    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 other Daily
Advice & Tips: Cleared my angular cheilitis right up. As to my previous comment: it turned out I didn't have ringworm, I had eczema from adult onset lactose intolerance, and that is why it didn't work on the rash on my hands.
