Angular cheleitis CAN be (but not necessarily is) caused by iron deficiency or high blood sugar.

Might be worth checking or watching.

Interesting. For the first time at my last donation, I was told that my iron level was just sufficient to let me donate.

Can I get these things checked at a pharmacy, or must I go through the anguish of trying to see speak to exchange pixels unsatisfactorily with my gp, might you know?

Suspect your pharmacy can check your sugar but haemoglobin and iron might need a GP.

Suggest: a few days' Canesten.
Pharmacy sugar check.
A few days' observation off Canesten.

GP in 2nd week of December if cheleitis recurs or sooner if blood sugar higher than desirable.
