Consider possibly Sjogren's syndrome.
Dr. Robert Lowe
Pediatric Rheumatology

In brief: See your doctor...

See your doctor and ask if a referral to rheumatology might be warranted.
Many reasons for dry mouth but one thing you don't want to miss is an autoimmune disease called sjogren's syndrome. Blood tests can be helpful in diagnosing this. Sjogren's can also cause dry eyes since it causes inflammation and damage to tear glands and saliva glands. Sjogren's syndrome is a cousin of lupus.
