The palette of my mouth is sore only behind the two front teeth. I feel the skin is peeling only in the one spot between the two front teeth

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

For a week and a half. My nail on my index finger has been turning black for no reason

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have Multiple Sclerosis and I take a lot of medication

Hi, there! I'd be happy to help you figure out what is going on with the gums on the roof of your mouth. Would you mind answering a few questions for me?

1. How long have the gums been sore and peeling in this area?

2. Do the gums bleed in this area?

3. When you bite your teeth together, do the bottom teeth touch the gums in this area?

4. Have you been suffering from allergies or a cold or anything else that would force you to breathe through your mouth?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

1. It's been sore for a week and a half, the skin feels like I can lift it with my tongue.
2.No the gums are bleeding.
3.The teeth do touch.
4. I'm coughing.

Okay, thank you for answering all of those questions. The most likely cause of this gum tenderness and peeling is friction from the lower teeth touching the gums there. This will be aggravated when you clench your teeth at night.

One way to remove the irritation would be to wear a nightguard to separate the teeth at night. The very best option is a nightguard made by your dentist. However, an over-the-counter one may do enough separation to give your gums time to heal from the irritation.

Does that answer your question?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
