It may be angular cheilitis or herpes simplex labialis followed by leucoderma. Trauma can induce both the condition. Now you should be aware to avoid injury again. For white patch you use tacrolimus oint. 0.03 percent. Rub thrice a day. Take vitamin B complex tab. daily . If the sore like lesion occures again,you consult nearest dermatologist.
