White patches in the mouth can have varied causes ranging from trauma to minor reactive alterations to precancerous conditions as well..... a proper clinical examination by a dentist will be able to help us arrive at the right diagnosis...... with the clinical description that you have mentioned, vitamin deficiency or dehydration can also be the causes for these patches.... better get a check up done as soon as possible..... Regards.....
