Hello and welcome to HCM,

After reading to your symptoms i suspect your are suffering from acute bronchititis. It is inflammation of air passages or bronchi of the lungs. It often shows the symptoms as you have mentioned like cough, nasal drip ,swelling of nostrils , phelgm, congestion and spasms. Tongue ulcers is the secondary effect might be due to acid reflux or phelgm.

you can apply dentogel ,an oral antiseptic and anesthetic ointment over the tongue ulcers which will give relief and numbing effect. mouth gargling with chlorhexidine will give soothing effect to tongue.

Though i suggest you to consult a ENT specialist for clinical evaluation and treatment. take care
