White substance around inner cheeks on waking up, peeling inside lips, follow good dental hygiene. Remedy?

Hi I have a white substance around my inner cheeks when I wake up in the morning. It is easily scraped off. It isn t on my tongue therefore I don t believe it s thrush. It isn t painful, just annoying. I brush my teeth and floss 3 times a day and have been using peroxide as a mouthwash lately hoping it would go away. The inside of my lips peel as well.

Thanks for posting your query.

Sounds pretty typical. I would not worry about it too much.

Have you recently switch products such as a new mouthwash or toothpaste? Sometimes that will create your body to react to the new product and your tissue can slough off.

The appearance of the tissue will resemble a thin coating or film that wipes off easily.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
