Thanks for your interest. Every day, white skin-like jelly forms on the interior walls of my mouth, also under the tounge from time to time. I end up having to dig or scrape the skin-like jelly from the inside of my mouth. The stuff usually forms overnight while I sleep, but can also form throughout the day. There are no red spots in my mouth, no tumors or lesions, no sores, no bumps, in fact my mouth otherwise feels fine. My mouth does feel pasty lately.

I thought that toothpaste caused it, but later ruled it out.

I describe the jelly as skin like because it will coat the entire insides of my cheeks, and when scraped out looks somewhat like skin. But it is a jelly substance of somekind. It is always white, although rinsing my mouth with blue or green Listerine will cause all the jelly to soak in some blue/green coloring. Listerine will remove some, but I have to scrape out the bulk.

Any ideas on the cause(s) or treatment suggestions? I am completely baffled.

Many thanks!!!
