dead/dry skin in my mouth - July 17th 2011, 06:37 PM

I know, it sounds disgusting.

But on the inside of both my cheeks, skin is peeling off.I can feel where the skin is dead in there.
Anyways, what could this be from and how do I fix it? Can't really put lotion in my mouth.. lol

Hey Lynds,

I'm not sure exactly what it is but it can be caused by certain anxiety and depression medications so perhaps that's what the cause is. I googled this and it says that if this is the case the best idea is to talk to your doctor and they can adjust the dosage to try and remedy this.

There's not any lotions that can help this but there are some oral rinses you can use but they seem to be only available on prescription so I think you're probably going to have to go and see the doctor about this.

Take care

It could be what the above poster said or it could just be that you're not drinking enough water.

You need to drink at least 2 litres of water every day SPREAD OUT over the day.

Thanks for the helpful advice!

I don't take my meds anymore, though.
And a new thing appeared.

I had a big bump in my mouth that filled with liquid and it popped. It didn't hurt or anything. weirrrrrrd

Whoa. I've never heard of that! Hmm. I think maybe you should just give a doctor a call to make sure and be safe. I'm sure it's nothing huge though. Good luck!



I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe we’ll never know most of them.
But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

Sounds like a canker sore to me.
Look here for information about it if you're interested: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001993/

I've gotten that a lot. Doesn't seem to be a big deal though. I've never had any problems. Maybe she's right and it's dehydration.
