Thanks for asking the query,

Blisters on the tongue can be due to physical or chemical trauma, tongue scalding or injury caused by hot food stuffs.
Blisters which are recurrent and painful in nature suggest herpes infection.

I would suggest you to visit to an Dentist and get a checkup done.
Maintain a good oral hygiene.
Clean the tongue gently with soft bristle toothbrush.
Use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.
Avoid eating of hot and spicy foodstuffs.

Hope this helps out.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
blisters last for around a week and then disappear on their own. Therefore, no medical treatment is required. However, if they refuse to go, if the size of the blisters increases or if you are getting them quite frequently, then it is advisable to visit a doctor. The doctor will ascertain the cause and treat it accordingly.
Application of ointments or creams with zinc content can reduce the size of fever blisters.
Topical anesthetics are good for getting relief from a painful tongue blister. You can get both these ointments over the counter as well.
For severe pain for canker sores, anti-inflammatory medicines are prescribed.
In some rare cases, antiviral medicines are given for the treatment of infection caused by herpes simplex virus.
Antifungal medicines are effective for the treatment of oral thrush.
The pain and discomfort associated with hand, foot and mouth disease is mostly controlled with the help of medicated mouthwashes and oral sprays. These have a numbing effect on the painful sores.
If required, low doses of pain relieving medications are also given.
Those who have deficiency of vitamin B are prescribed with suitable vitamin supplements.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Dentist Dr. Benley George's  Response
Your problem seems to be an aphthous ulcer. This type of ulcer is cause by stress, trauma, Vitamin b deficiency. Stress is often a common cause and so it can be usually associated with children during examination time. The ulcer heals on its own in 7-10 days time. You can apply dentogel ointment 10 mins prior to taking food for relieving pain. Avoid spicy foods for 1 week. Take multivitamin tablets daily for 10 days.
