Question Mouth Peeling

I have the autoimmune variety pack - SLE, RA, Sjogren's, Raynauds and recently added Fibro to the mix.

I'm pretty accustomed to bizarre symptoms of my autoimmune diseases - I usually "stump the doctors" with them.

For about 2 years, I've had skin peeling off in rather large pieces from the roof of my mouth. At first it was once in a blue moon, but the frequency has increased to 4-5x a week. (Hence I thought it could be related to one of the diseases) It's an annoyance more than anything - no pain involved.

I've tried avoiding hot/cold foods, brushed the roof of my mouth vigorously but no luck.

Anyone else had this experience or am I just a whacko?

What kind of meds are you on? Could it be a yeast infection? Have you been to the doc, what does he/she say? JEan

I'm on Plaquenil - but this started long before I started the med. (If it was up to my Rheumy, the drug list would take me 10 mins to list...)

Doubtful on the yeast infection - I took a difulcan 2x last two months. No change. Good suggestion though.

Making my rounds to my doctors this week, will ask them about it and share my findings...

I had the same peeling in the roof of my mouth also. I have Lupus, it began long before I was diagnosed or started taking drugs for Lupus. I gargled with peroxide diluted with water.I have not had the peeling for about a year now.

Thumbs up

The doc gave me a mixture to gargle with that includes lidocaine and some other stuff. Seems to work well but gargling every day with this is going to require a lot on a monthly basis.
