Hi, the condition you are referring to may be a fungal infection called as candidiasis or it may be any kind of autoimmune dematologic condition like lichen planus. Such conditions are treated by proper medications but for the accurate diagnosis you need to get a biopsy done, visit an oral medicine (MDS) specialist dentist for complete treatment details.
Take care
