Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
in my opinion there is sinus infection causing this
as all symptoms are almost similar to sinusitis
you can use metronidazole course to clear infection
take anti allergic s to decrease mucus
apply ointments on blisters in back of tongue and roof of mouth
chin swelling will take time to go as it is reactive hyperplaia of nodes
but i will advise you to get x ray pns waters view and consult ent doctor to find the exact diagnosis
