Sorethroat, painful blisters in tongue. Treatment.

Resolved Question:

Hi there,
I have had an extremely sore throat for the past three days, enough to prevent me from sleeping. I have no other symptoms of cold or flu other than mild fatigue, and have no hoarseness. Today my tongue erupted in hundreds of tiny, painful blisters. I am using Strepsils Extra (a Lidocain, Amylmetacresol and 2,4-Dichlorobenzyl alcohol bsaed spray), however my tongue is still bleeding from the blisters. What is causing this and how can I treat it?

Thank You for your query at
I request you to upload a high resolution image of your tongue for me to be able to understand what kind of a blister you are having.
Such painful blisters can occur due to a lot of causes such as emotional stress, oral hygiene, vitamin b12 and iron deficiency, lack of sleep, stress, e.t.c But since you had sore throat before it seems more infective in origin. Even oral thrush needs to be ruled out.
Hence i can give you my opinion, once i see a picture of your tongue,
