Can rubbing the roof of your mouth constantly cause some skin to peel or get rough?

Can rubbing the roof of your mouth constantly cause some skin to peel or get rough?

Of course: There is no part of the human body that is intended to be rubbed constantly, or can tolerate constant rubbing, without causing damage. The feet are rugged, and develop thicker skin in response to constant walking on bare feet... and thus are probably the only parts of the body that can withstand constant friction. However, even feet can eventually be damaged. ...Read more

How do doctors treat a small hole in the roof of the mouth under the skin? Will there be any major side effects? What are the Causes?

Tricky: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, the AREAS of gaps in the roof of the mouth are deforming and need surgery (CLEFT PALATE). Without an exam, cannot say much:

If your daughter has: Lupus & Sjogren's Syndrome, peeling of the mucous membranes of her hard palate can either be from her auto-immune disorders or from her Plaquinil & Methotrexate. If she has Rheumatoid Arthritis, it's probably from her meds. Ask her rheumatologist to refer her to a dentist who has expertise in oral manifestations of chronic systemic diseases. She should avoid spicy or acidic foods till treated. ...Read more

What could be causing the roof of my mouth and inside gum-line to be like "sandpaper"? I first felt this roughness 2 days ago. It is not painful. However today I noticed a small lump of irritated skin attached just about an inch below the front inside o

The: The roughness and patches in your mouth can be attributed to a couple of things - and infection or a reaction to a type of food you ate.
Foods - some people experience excoriation of oral membranes if eating a food that they are sensitive to. For instance, if you eat a fruit that is highly acidic such as kiwi, it can be irritating to the mouth. Some people experience sensitivity to spicy foods or cinnamon flavored candy/food. This is resolved by avoiding foods that can cause irritation.
Infection - there are fungi that reside in our bodies that may grow out of control if our immune system is affected or decreased. One infection that can occur in the mouth is called "thrush, " caused by the fungus, candida. This infection is manifested by red or white, irritated patches in the mouth. It can be treated with otc topical solutions, but please note that healing could take a couple of weeks. It will be important to follow up with your doctor if symptoms persist, despite otc treatment. Oral cancers and other infections have similar early symtpoms, as you are currently experiencing. ...Read more

Return: Return to the Dentist or specialist Oral Surgeon who removed your teeth for a post surgical evaluation.
