It could also be that you are suffering from some sort of pigmentation which is giving you this problem. It could also be some sort of a skin allergy that you are suffering from. The best course of action to take in such cases is to first get a medical opinion and determine where the problem lies. This will eliminate the necessity of trial and error considerably.

Also, the roof of the mouth is a delicate area, and one that must not be tampered with unnecessarily. Any aggravation of problems here could only make your case worse, rather than helping you out.
