Suffered from perioral dermatitis in Dec 2013. Doctor gave me medicines like Fluzec etc. Cured. But area around mouth still gets red nd feels tender.

Avoid irritants: Perioral dermatitis can cause symptoms for a while in some people. Avoidance of makeup including lipstick, avoiding toothpaste that contains fluoride such as sodium fluoride or monofluorophosphate (MFP), and moisturizers/lotion on the face can help. You may need repeat treatment, but avoid topical steroids because they tend to contribute to the problem (symptoms helped while on it, but then worsen). ...Read more

My dentist told me that stopping smoking has caused soreness & redness in the palate of my mouth. Has been there for 1 month plus now is this common?

Hmmmmmm.: I'm not sure if I personally would agree with that observation. Smoking can and will cause changes to the soft tissues of your mouth, including the palate. I would think that over time, the tissues will revert back to their natural healthy state, unless there has been some irreversible damage.
