What is the treatment for small sores in the mouth?

I have small sores on both sides of my mouth, at the corners, onto my face. they have been recurring for the last six weeks +. They are tender to the touch, form a kind of scab that then flakes off. I m wondering what it is, and what I can do to get rid of them.

HI
Well come to HCM
Most of the time such lesion are fungal in origin and this can be best treated with anti fungal treatment and the best option would be oral antifungal and the option would be Mycostatin, hope this information helps.
