Question: I had a severe stomach virus with diareaha(spelling) I have dry mouth syndrome also. I was severely dehydrated causing my tongue and the sides of my mouth to adhere to sides of my mouth (more than usual) after the virus which lasted approximately 12 days. Now the blisters are severe and I am having difficulty speaking and drinking and eating solid food. I am 71 years old. I am using Neosporin for short-term minor relief

Brief Answer:
Try orajel...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There are numbing agents containing benzocaine / lignocaine. Orajel is one such product.

You can try it on the affected area. It will numb the area and ease the discomfort to some extent. If the blisters persists for more than a week, you should visit a doctor for evaluation.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
