For the past two or three weeks I've been experiencing mouth itch - affecting my palette, around the exterior of my mouth and sometimes my throat. It comes and goes.

Could this be an allery? Could this be something else? Stress, perhaps or something more serious? I keep reading/hearing about mouth itch as a symptom of anything from oral yeast infection, viral infection even to cancer. Any ideas?
