Skin peeling off from inside mouth.

Postby shazq » Thu Aug 01, 2013 6:55 pm

Hi
For a few weeks now I have been getting skin falling off from the sides of my mouth, I do chew my mouth but this happens at times when I don't chew.
Sometimes I go to talk or yawn and the skin just falls onto my tongue, it has started to happen quite a lot and no idea what is causing it, I have always chewed my mouth so I know that has nothing to do with it.

Does anyone else get this?

Yip I get this also. I was wondering if its a side effect of meds. Keep forgetting to ask Dr tho! What meds are you on? I'm taking Lyrica, amitriptyline, mirtazipine, morphine, paracetamol & propanalol. Been on same drugs for ages but have only been aware of this for last few months.

This is something I suffer from, too, as well as mouth ulcers - the more I fight the disease, the more I get. Dr could not understand why and just raised his eyebrows - very helpful!! :yikes: It is very uncomfortable when eating something acidic, like tomatoes so I use a mouthwash called Eludril on prescription, or Difflam. :-| This gives some relief.

Thinking off hand shaz normally this is a sign of an auto immune disease.

So possibly could be linked to your chrones?

Think from all the answers Shaz the only thing is a trip to the docs, it could well be your meds or as Lisa says be related to your Crones, it sounds unpleasant, is it painful at all :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: only ask as if its to do with ulcers that normally stings a bit :?: :?: :?:

I have this when my Crohn's flares up.
You need to use a mouthwash with chlorhexadine in it. Corsodyl has it in. Superdrug do an own brand one which is good & cheaper.
Good luck

I posted about this, last year I think. Managed to look back through other posts on same subject and someone had suggested toothpaste - changed my toothpaste and it stopped with no recurrence as yet - worth trying. The paste I was using was cinnamon flavour as mint tends to burn my mouth but my dental hygienist said that cinnamon is known for causing mouth peeling.

Oh I get this only in the last month or so. I haven't been on any new drugs and been on the same toothpaste for ages. It's really weird

Hi

I started with ulcers in my mouth and then severe reddening in my cheeks and skin was peeling away from my mouth. I have been put on steroids for Lupus but you could always look at Lichen Planus. Mine is auto immune where my body is attacking my immune system, please get medical advice for this as it does sound very similar to mine. Ps i also have crohn's disease and i thought it was that,that had spread into my mouth, but after many biopsies it has proved it isnt.

:goodluck2:
