Persistent skin peeling inside mouth. Due to yeast infection?

Hi I am 42 years old, in good heath and I was wondering what has caused the inside of my lips and cheeks to peel in the morning. I have had this for years now and it has not changed nor gotten any worse. I have read several sites where it could be dangerous and contagious...but I am really quite sure its not.. Yeast build up maybe??

Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

Cheek peeling in the mouth can be because of several reasons;
can be due to bacterial, viral infections, oral herpes, vitamin B12 deficiency,
tobacco use, smoking, low immunity.

I would suggest you to get an examination done by a Dentist, take necessary x-rays if needed.

Meanwhile maintain a good oral hygiene, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.
Avoid eating of hot and spicy foods.
Take vitamin B complex tablets once daily.
Use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
