Fungal infection aorund the mouth

I suspect I have a fungal infection around my mouth. The area is red and dry and I wake up with the most terrible dry lips. It is reacting well to Normospor and a -|- tail of creams at night including Campher cream, Germolene, Normospor, Nipple cream and some E45.

How long do these normally take to clear up? It's sore, just damn irritating and a bit itchy.

Joe, with a bit of luck it shouldn’t take more than 7 – 10 days. Good luck.
