Peeling in mouth : Not sure what would cause this without a visual examination and more information. Was this caused by trauma or a burn? See your dentist or an oral surgeon for an examination.

Could also be Erosive Lichen Planus, allergic reaction, or have other cause. Dr Rubenstein is correct, see your Dentist.

Damaged mucosa: May be from a burn from overly hot food,, a scrape, or an allergic reaction. Have you changed t'paste or mouthwash recently? New meds/supplements/vitamins? Your Dentist can prescribe a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable as tissues heal. If problem recurs, you may want to see an Allergist.
