I did some checking and everything is pointing to maybe something fungal.I didn't find any connection to your rhumatoid  arthritis. That's not to say I would rule it out. There were also several other things it could be.

You need to see your doctor about this and have it checked properly. The fact that it's not painful is a good sign. Using the Listerine is always a good move because of it's antiseptic properties.

Let me know how your  appointment turns out.
