Suggest remedy for peeling off of thin membrane in mouth

The thin membrane in my mouth appears to be peeling off. This has been going on for 2 weeks. The inside of my lower lip feels a little swollen and appears more pink than normal. Can you please explain the possible causes and next steps that I need to take. Thank you.

Well come to HCM
This is stomatitis and because of this the mucus membrane of mouth becomes spongy and this pill off easily, in my opinion the condition can be treated with tannic acid or salicylic acid mouth application, and in oral folic acid once in day can be tried, hope this helps.
