Recurring paleness inside the mouth around lips with peeling, occasional bleeding. What is the cause and remedy?

For four years the inside of my mouth turns a pale white-ish color and i can peel sheets off with my fingers or i bite it off. sometimes it bleeds after the skin comes off. by the end of the day i have peeled it off and it is raw. I wake up in the mornings and it starts all over again. It is the best in the mornings since i have peeled it off the day before but by mid day it has all come back. This is mainly the insides of my lips and the outer check area. not where else in the mouth does this happen. I have seen all specialist, dentists, oral surgeons doctors etc etc. They all look at it and they don t have any clue what it is. please help!

Dentist, Orthodontics 's  Response
i dont know if you have had any medicine for this problem but according to the information you provided it seems me that you might be suffering from angular chillitis . its a deficiency disease caused by deficiency of various vitamins or deranged liver function or consumption of alcoholic drinks.
you should take multivitamin capsules like EMVIT PLUS twice daily after breakfast and dinner for three weeks then once only after breakfast for two months. drink lots of water and try to change the dental paste to see if you see any relief.
if it dose 'nt help then see a dermatologist.
take care
