Brief Answer: Multiple possibilities, need examination Detailed Answer: Thank you for asking Miss XXXX! I am Dr S Khan and i would like to answer your query for mouth peeling / oral keratosis. Miss XXXX i want you to know that Without seeing the lesion, it is impossible to give more than a general overview.Here are some likely reasons for these mouth peelings. 1-Smoking is a recognised cause of oral keratoses, formerly included under the heading leukoplakia (white patches). 2- Oral candidal infections like candidiasis and lichen planus resulting from a poor oral hygiene can also do that. 3-It could be recurrent aphthous ulcers 4- Oral manifestation of systemic disease like crohn's, ulcerative colitis, some immunocompromised disease like HIV, some anemias, some connective tissue diseases etc. 5-It can be due to a drug induced conditions like dry mouth, use of corticosteroids , gingival hyperplasia, aphthous stomatitis etc. 6-Old ages like yours can be associated with oral malignancies like leukoplakia and squamous cell malignancies. In short you need to seek a Gp or Dentist for further management as it needs a complete examination and assessment for a better management. I hope it helps. Take good care and close the discussion please. May the odds be ever in your favour. S Khan
