Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

It is likely that you are allergic to methyl methacrylate, the acrylic material that the denture is made up of.

This is a very uncommon allergy. You need to stop wearing those dentures. return to the dentist/Prosthodontist who made them.

You will most likely need a new set of dentures with a different base material.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.

I wish you a speedy recovery !!!
