cracked mud in corners of rooms


Each Winter when the air becomes really dry the mud in the corners of my rooms crack. What can I fill them with to stop this problem?

If they are small cracks in the corners, I have before and would recommend using a siliconized paintable caulking. It will provide flexibility to the rigid corner.

I did try caulk before but I am not sure it was sandable and paintable. It shrank and caused a problem itself but I will try a different caulk. Thanks
