    When I use mouthwash excessively, my mouth does the same thing. It's like the mouthwash is killing the surface layer. Maybe your skin is a little more sensitive than mine.

    A lot of toothpastes have common ingredients. Perhaps you could try just using homemade dentrifice in the interest of isolating yourself from possible allergens. Mix three parts baking soda with one part salt. It won't taste at all like the toothpastes you are used to but try it for a week, if your skin stops peeling then you likely have a reaction to one of the many chemicals in most common toothpastes. If you want to get fancy you can add glycerin and a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil to make more like traditional toothpaste. Good luck!

    The skin around you mouth? It may not have anything do with any of the brands, it's probably and ingredient in all of the toothpastes. So, you probably have a real sensitivity of some sort and it's a reaction. Try not to let it get on your skin.

    An allergen substance will not always cause pain, therefore you may still be prone to an allergic reaction. You may be brushing with a toothbrush that has hard bristles, try a softer one.

    Well, most toothpaste companies use the same basic formula for toothpaste, so I'd recommend that you use a hypoallergenic toothpaste.

    maybe try using a natural toothpaste? Tom's has a good selection.

    that sounds bad. go see a dentist/dr. you could have a condition causing the problem as opposed to being allergic.
