Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery

Yes and no: Most people with dry mouth are actually irritating their lips and tongue without realizing it, given that the tongue has a mind of its own. Is it ok when you first wake up, ie after not working on it all night? Sometimes the cause of the dry mouth goes away, but the secondary irritation just keeps up because it is a behavioral change.

Possibly: A dry mouth can cause many things. Multiple medications are a common source . There are salivary substitutes on the market to try and see if they help.
