There are a variety of reasons why you have a raw feeling inside your cheeks:

• Build up of plaque in your mouth
• Allergic reaction
• Recently burnt your mouth
• May have recently changed toothpastes or mouthwash
• Onset of a mouth ulcer

As with any medical or dental concern it is always best to get it checked out as soon as possible. If it is causing you trouble and a lot of worry then it is a good idea to see an expert who will be able to give you the correct diagnosis.

With an oral issue such as this then you really have two choices. You can either go to a doctors who may well refer you to a dentist or another specialist or you could go straight to your dentists. Both will ask you to explain your issues and will also examine the area that is troubling you.

As stated earlier it could be a case of a build up of plaque which can give you the raw feeling and bad taste in your mouth. Therefore a professional cleaning from a dentist may well be the best way to rectify this issue.

Allergic reactions could also affect the feeling in your mouth and so both a doctor or dentist could identify if this is the cause.

If you can remember recently burning your mouth while eating hot food or drinking a hot drink then this could cause the raw feeling. This is less serious unless it is a severe burn and should heal on its own accord in a few days.

Also changing toothpastes and mouthwashes can give you a strange sensation and so it maybe an idea to change back to your regular brand.

Tell me about it. Usually when I get it it goes away on it's own in a few hours.  I'm going on three days this time.  I'm reading it must be some sort of reaction to food or drink, but I haven't figured it out.

You probably ate something either too hot, or too spicy, and burnt the sensitive lining of your mouth.  It should heal quickly; less than 24hrs, if it doesn't, see a doctor my friend!
