this is classically from food sensitivity or allergy.
The fact that it comes and goes, without other symptoms, would indicated this.
I would be glad to look at a picture.
Lichen planus is also possible.
Have your dentist, or doctor look at it when you have it will help narrow this down.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
