Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The blisters on your throat was granular pharyngitis, those are the enlarged lymphoid follicles. Cold sore on the tongue and gums could be canker sores. You need to take multivitamins along with the antibiotics, drink plenty of water. You will be alright, any more doubts you are welcome.

About a week ago, my left wisdom tooth was inflamed and my gums were swollen. During the week, I noticed the lymph node on the left side of my neck was a bit swollen. Today, the swelling is gone and my jaw no longer hurts. Although about two days ago, I noticed the skin around my left hip bone was tender, like I had been hit or had pulled a muscle. And today, I noticed my left inguinal lymph node was swollen and tender, and I also have a couple small patches of red bumps on my upper left thigh. The bumps don t itch but the area around the lymph node is tender. And on top of it all, related or not, I have had some chest congestion, cold like symptoms the past week.
