No stickyness or sense of burning on inside of cheek.
Occasional dry mouth from use of CPAP breathing machine which does not happen often or on the day that the skin peels off (I usually notice the skin sloughing off in the afternoon.

I am using the same toothpaste I have used for years, and do not use teeth whitening products or mouthwash. No new medicines or food either. Any other suggestions?
