I've had a mouth condition for some time now (as long as I can remember) that didn't bother me one little bit but has bothered my dentist and she's sent me off to a specialist but there's a two month wait!

I went to my doctor who said he had no idea what it was!

The condition is a white film that follows the pattern of the lower lip. It's flaky (peels) and seems to be disappear completely and then return!

Any ideas?

  • I don't have any idea. I have the same thing though and have been trying to figure out what it is. So far I haven't had any ideas what it could be from. At first I thought it was from drinking hot liquids that were just too hot. It has been there for at least two weeks now and I am beginning to really wonder what it is. I think that I am going to go to the doctor because I have had really no leads.

  • This sounds like leukocytosis. The cause could be from something like an allergic reaction all the way up to leukemia. I had it a few times in a month a few years ago. Nothing since.
